Let us try to understand the basic relationship of Man (representing the larger part of the animal kingdom) and Trees (representing the major group of plant life).

Man needs the following in order to survive:
1) H2O or water
2) O or Oxygen from the atmosphere
3) Food from meat of animals and organisms and plant matter, which are all cellular substances.

Trees need the following in order to survive:
1) H2O or water
2) CO2 or Carbon Dioxide
3) Sunlight from the sun for photosynthesis
4) Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium (N-P-K) and other trace elements from the soil

- Man produce carbon dioxide as main by-product, which will be used by plants and trees
- Excessive carbon dioxide in the atmosphere trap heat of the sun (greenhouse effect)
- Accummulation of heat causes global warming


- Trees produce oxygen as by-product, which in turn will be inhaled by man
- Carbon is stored in the trees.
- Forests are cleared by man for development and commercial lumber
- Lumber or wood (made up of cellular matter) decomposes in time or used as fossil fuel
- Carbon dioxide is then released in large quantities in the atmosphere
- Greenhouse effect will follow

As a result of this imbalance, life for man and animals will be hard. Aside from the severe climatic changes that will occur, food for the ever growing population of man will be scarce. Chaos will gradually follow and mass death of every living thing............NEXT IS EVOLUTION.

*According to the Wikipedia, "Charcoal is the blackish residue consisting of impure carbon obtained by removing water and other volatile constituents from animal and vegetation substances. Charcoal is usually produced by slow pyrolysis, the heating of wood, sugar, bone char or other substances in the absence of oxygen (see pyrolysis, char and biochar). The resulting soft, brittle, lightweight, black, porous material resembles coal and is 85% to 98% carbon with the remainder consisting of volatile chemicals and ash."
