Volcanoes release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere during volcanic eruptions, contributing to the increase in carbon dioxide levels. Plants play a role in the carbon cycle by absorbing carbon dioxide through photosynthesis, but deforestation and land-use changes can reduce their capacity, leading to higher carbon dioxide levels. Limestone formation involves the sequestration of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, but its overall impact on carbon dioxide increase is relatively minor compared to volcanic emissions and human activities.
