    Just adding a bit of an idea of what the above answer relates to, all of the forests and trees in the United States absorb about .3-.7 billion tons of carbon during a year.  The U.S. produces around 1.4 billion tons or carbon per year from its factories, which means that a net .7-1.1 billion tons of carbons are put into the atmosphere each year from the U.S.
