But if we are causing global warming, don't you think the green industry is in a good place considering that turf and trees will eat up that CO2?
Absolutely, and we should be letting people know that we were the initial "green" industry.

We've been practicing IPM since before IPM was IPM. Adjusting irrigation controllers based on weather. Fertilizing when turf needs it vs "it's that time of the year" again. Using PGR's to reduce labor, fuel, clippings; even with shrubs.

There is a lot we can do, weather (pun intended) we are the cause of global warming or not. (We aren't, it's a cycle as easy-lift guy stated.)
