The human population growth will not stop if not controlled. Companies will try to meet the demand for more consumer goods, causing the development of more factories. Deforestation, or the clearing of forests, will occur to build the factories. The increase in factories will result in higher carbon dioxide levels emitted into the atmosphere. Humans are unquestionably the most advanced species. They are also, unfortunately, the most destructive. Humans are causing a surprising amount of damage to the Earth because of one thing, overpopulation. Machines clear trees from land to accommodate the demand for housing and commercial buildings, which in turn causes the release of carbon dioxide through gas emissions. Also, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), tropical forests contain more than two-hundred-ten gigatons of carbon dioxide, which when released into the atmosphere increases the amount of greenhouse gases (Cesareo and Walker). According to the WWF, tropical trees alone are responsible for releasing more than 15 percent of greenhouse gas emissions (Cesareo and Walker). In the Eastern Hemisphere, there are high greenhouse
