How Dangerous is Carbon Emission? 

Green Matters reported that carbon emissions or greenhouse gas emissions usually come from many sources. But, the biggest contributor to carbon dioxide emission is transportation. 

This is one of the various companies, such as Tesla and other EV makers, developing and producing efficient zero-emission vehicles to reduce greenhouse gases across different countries. 

When it comes to severity, carbon emission is currently the main cause of climate change, which is already felt by almost all countries across the globe. 

In other news, crypto mining agencies in Kazakhstan said they are now prepared to invest in renewable energy. On the other hand, U.S. DOE recently announced that the United States currently relies on wind energy to generate electricity.
