Notice the Slashdot comment moderation. The social media could take a clue.
It would take 49.5-trillion new trees to compensate for the carbon from fossil fuels.And that wouldn't affect the carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere at all.More than the entire surface of the Earth,including all the oceans,lakes ,and rivers would have to be 'planted',and that still wouldn't be enough.
