Global warming is one of the most serious challenges facing us today. To protect the health and economic well-being of current and future generations, we must reduce our emissions of heat-trapping gases by using the technology, know-how, and practical solutions already at our disposal.
The “greenhouse effect’. refers to the temperature regulation effect that certain atmospheric gases have on the earth. The temperature-regulating gases, called “greenhouse gases” or GHGs, form a blanket around the earth that traps some heat from the sun within the earth’s atmosphere, The Greenhouse gasses keep the planet warm and habitable, and keep the planet some 30 °C warmer than it would be.
There are six types of GHGs covered under global warming policies and in trading programs: Carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH,), Nitrous Oxide (N20), Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), Per fluorocarbons (PFCs), Hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs). Greenhouse gases make up only about 1 percent of the atmosphere.

Be Green Group has developed a super-fast growing tree (Kajornphuwapong) to be a renewable energy source for the world future. The tree has many special unique properties, including the ability to accumulate water in its trunk, also influencing the hydrological cycles in the surrounding dense plantations area of the tree, so as to increase the moisture to soil and ambient. All of these effects are very beneficial to the Ecosystems.
The benefits of agroforestry with the Kajornphuwapong tree including Ecological, Social and Economic benefits, which will be explain in these follow:
1. Addressing energy shortages that are the seeds of future conflict and War.
2. A boon to local economies of areas cultivating the Kajornphuwapong, reducing unemployment, benefiting the lowest income sectors of the population and resisting economic recession.
3. Helping reduce the social gaps in nations with large discrepancies between the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’, thereby increasing social stability.
4. Increasing the Economic Independence of Developing Nations, making them less prone to economic, social and political domination by other Nations.
5. Improving prosperity in rural districts and helping stem migration to overcrowded urban centres, and helping equalise economic prosperity between urban and rural areas.
6. Making for drought resistance, improving the quality and moisture content of the soil, and resisting advancing desertification.
7. Sequestering carbon to help mitigate Climate Change.
