Statistics for year 2020 show CO<sub>2</sub> emission levels in Italy of 5 tons/inhabitant/year. At a planetary level, 300 Mton/year have been produced in Italy. For comparison, 4500 Mton/year were produced by the USA, 650 Mton/year by Germany and 11500 Mton/year by China. Greenhouse gas increase is a matter of concern, bringing about temperature increase on a global scale, which will impact in turn the hydrological cycle, thus also involving groundwater [...].
