It's a QnA, not an article, and the Question was posted on the EnviroHealth forum by a reader (a few readers, it's not the first time I've received the question). It's not an absurd question, actually, if you consider that over a billion people smoke, and that smoking does release carbon. As for the tobacco industry's contribution generally to climate change and environmental degradation, this is very real, especially as regards deforestation. Large areas of forest are cut down in several tobacco-growing areas for e.g. for use in curing tobacco.
