CO2 causes warmer oceans, warmer temperatures, more hurricanes, violent weather - Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation fights pollution and high carbon dioxide levels with nature education, promotes renewable energy. We protect lakes, water, rivers, oceans. We take action to protect the future of the next generation by lowering CO2 levels
Vines take a lot of carbon dioxide out of the air, they need no additional water, no chemicals, no pesticides!
Because of much higher CO2 levels in Earth's air, vines are growing much stronger, taking over some native plant growth.

As always in Nature: Nature need balance - Nature tries to stay in balance
