Photosynthesis and Environment

Learn about the process of photosynthesis and understand its importance to our green environment.


The level of carbon dioxide in the environment largely depends on the process of Photosynthesis. Industries and excessive number of vehicles on the road and other hazards of the modern era have led to increasing use of fuel and release of industrial waste and carbon monoxide which is critically fatal for our environment.

Interestingly, just as the increase in the carbon-dioxide level may harm the environment; similarly decrease in the level may cause the planet to freeze as carbon dioxide helps in keeping our planet warm and liveable. Photosynthesis helps in maintaining the balance in both situations.
