Carbon molecules readily bond with oxygen molecules which makes C02 in the atmosphere hence creating the "Greenhouse Effect" Because of this tornadoes and hurricanes have become more frequent and powerful which scientists have warned us about for decades now because of burning fossil fuels. Each car and truck spews tons of carbon into the atmosphere.
