Is smoking hookah bad for the environment?

    Burning sheesha (tobacco used in a hookah) does release greenhouse gases since is the combustion of flammable material.  However, it is the production of tobacco itself that is the biggest problem. 

    Swathes of forest are cleared for tobacco fields, and their wood is burned to cure the tobacco.  Thus habitats are lost and gases released in the production process, which greatly outweighs the actual smoking of the tobacco itself.
