    • The forest play an important role in maintaining the balance between oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. As we know plants for their food nutrition requirement make use of process of photosynthesis, in which they consume Carbon Dioxide, released by the living organism from the environment.
    • Forests absorb the carbon dioxide and help to maintain balance.
    • There are more oxygen makers than CO2 users (thanks to the oceans which cover 80% of the world and have algaes and plankton making lots of oxygen) and the wind keeps these readily diffusable gases moving and mixing.
    • The biggest user of oxygen is the steel industry ( they liquify 1000's of tons of liquid oxygen from the air every day for the furnaces and to burn out impurities out of the metals) and even with that enourmous consumption are oxygen hasn't been decreasing.
