RO's Intro & What is the Best Global Warming FIghting Plant

Hello Everyone!

This is my first post to my new blog, Roland's Green World. I intend to communicate ways of living a more sustainable life and to marvel at the beauty of nature. The goal is to wake people up from our destructive path of consuming all of the earth's resources until there is nothing left. Only by respecting our natural world can we lead a positive, fulfilling life.

Recently my father told me that he thinks that bamboo is the best plant to fight global warming since it is evergreen and has many leaves with a large surface area. So this would enable bamboo to put out more oxygen than any other plant the thinking would go. More plantings of bamboo would certainly release more oxygen during the winter months when most of the trees here in the east coast are leafless. So are mass plantings of bamboo in order as an at least partial soltion to the ominous effects of global warming? Has anyone done research into which plants release the most oxygen and consume the most carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases?
