The uptake of carbon dioxide and water by plants generates oxygen and its biomass. The process is in equilibrium, known as the process of respiration and photosynthesis. No other living thing can carry out the process. Clearly, water and plants become the controller of the gas equilibrium cycle, which is emitted (carbon dioxide) and is needed (oxygen) by all living things. Here, water is represented as a lake, and plants as urban forest, another term greenspace. So, the lake and the forest are the ideal pairs, which are absolute as long as the sun seems to move from east to west.
