Carbon emissions come with drastic consequences. Climate change, which has aggravated and increased incidences of natural catastrophes such as droughts, bushfires, and tsunamis, among others, is largely a result of unchecked global warming, brought about by the overproduction of greenhouse gases, specifically carbon dioxide (CO2).
