Now, Walmart and Metro are also involved with the carbon disclosure project. Similar to Loblaw’s, Walmart uses a board of committee members who meet annually to evaluate climate change risks that can impact the company. The process on how Walmart integrates these ideas into business is more complex and detailed with it’s three core elements; opportunity, community and sustainability. Walmart also considers climate change on the corporate level, risk assessment and business energy level. In considering how much more complete Walmart’s response is in comparison to Loblaw’s, it is fitting that Walmart received a higher carbon disclosure ranking of 92% (Gomez, 2015).

Every fourth Tuesday of the month I go with my church to the Long Beach Rescue Mission and we volunteer to serve food to the homeless. I see families their eating dinner because they one have no food at their home or two because they stay at the homeless shelter.

“An approximate value for a 50-year-old oak forest would be 30,000 pounds of carbon dioxide sequestered per acre”, “ The forest would be emitting about 22,000 pounds of oxygen.” said Timothy J.Fahey, professor of ecology in the department of natural resources at Cornell University. Based on those numbers, it is obvious that forests play a fundamental role in the Earth since they brings lives to creatures including mankind.Their power, therefore, is used widely to tackle the air pollution of many countries. In Vietnam, forest cover density positively increased from 28% in 1942 to 41% in 2014( Thao Nguyen, November 26th ,2014), which brings an optimistic result to Vietnam’s environment. However, illegal logging and deforestation still exist. Marianne Brown’s article also said that: “Over the past 40 years, the country has lost 43 percent of its forest

Climate Change and World Agriculture primarily focuses on the impact of the greenhouses gases-the most important of which is carbon dioxide (CO2). According to Parry, “Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 have increased from about 280 parts per million by volume . .
