According to the report, every year tobacco affects 600 million trees, more than 49 million acres of land, and 22 billion tons of water, while 84 million tons of carbon dioxide are released into the environment. This amount of carbon dioxide emissions are 20 percent of the amount of this dangerous gas emitted by the airline industry.
