About 2 billion people face problems with where there energy will come from. Many of them don’t have access to alternative energy sources as of yet and so depend on finding and burning wood for their energy needs. All across Africa, Asia and Latin America that wood is becoming harder and harder to find. The need for energy leads to deforestation, deforestation then highlights drought problems. It can also lead to desertification of the landscape. And burning of all of that lumber releases all of that CO2 into the atmosphere and adds to global climate change.
