We know that the extensive climate changes have resulted in disasters like floods, ice rains, storms, droughts in the past few years.
All these are caused by human actions which destroy our environment. To be specific, these are the side effects of increased release of gases like carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen oxide etc, into the atmosphere, due to the high production of energy-intensive materials like cement, steel, plastics etc. This increased discharge of such gases disturb Earth's natural balance.
To avoid worse disasters in future, we need to act decisively to decrease the emission of such gases. One of the ways to reduce the emission of such gases is to increase the use of natural building materials like wood and stone. Studies show that wood is the only building material that bonds with carbon dioxide and helps to maintain the development standards with minimal impact on the environment and humans. Wooden objects have the ability to store CO2 for decades. Because of all these, now the importance of building wooden structures is much greater than ever before.
