Carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, and coal, solid waste, trees and wood products, and also as a result of other chemical reactions (e.g., manufacture of cement). Carbon dioxide is also removed from the atmosphere (or "sequestered") when it is absorbed by plants as part of the biological carbon cycle.
