The U.S.A. to join one trillion tree initiative to combat rising CO2 levels.




Planting 1.2 trillion trees could neutralize CO2 emissions, says ecologist

Quote:
At the conference, Crowther declared that there is enough room to plant another 1.2 trillion trees on Earth. He claimed that if humans take advantage of that space and actually plant 1.2 trillion trees, we could cancel out the last 10 years of CO2 emissions. Basically, he is proposing a reforestation of planet Earth.

“There’s 400 gigatons now, in the 3 trillion trees, and if you were to scale that up by another trillion trees that’s in the order of hundreds of gigatons captured from the atmosphere – at least 10 years of anthropogenic emissions completely wiped out,” Crowther said, as The Independent reported. He also claimed that trees are “our most powerful weapon in the fight against climate change,” adding that if we really planted 1.2 trillion trees, it would have an even bigger impact on the environment than things like switching to clean energy and vegetarian diets,

Okay,I need some help with the arithmetic.
We're presently burning the equivalent of every tree on Earth,times 15X,every year.However,if we plant enough trees to reforest Earth (once),and continuing with a 15-X global forest fire every year,one forest will be sufficient to absorb the carbon of fifteen forests? Is this the new,new math?

In jurisdictions where it isn't verboten, hemp can save the planet.

Those are some real creationists level bs claims they are throwing around, like saying the earth is only 4,000 years old.
'Urban Heat Island Effect' has been factored into the temperature records climatologists have used since the 1980s.Also,remote,terrestrial locations,far away from any urban development continue to warm.Out in the middle of the oceans.Tops of mountains.On the sea floor,under ice shelves.
PS The British will have official,Australian meteorological records,from the initial time of colonialism.Along with ship's records of air,water temperatures,and ocean currents.As well as declassified,cold war, naval,submarine records which recorded the entire water column,from operational deep depths, up to the surface.

Restoring grasslands would be a better way to sink carbon into the soil.

First you need soil. I'd posted a different video about Liquid Nano Clay and Morton Olesen:

Grasslands created much of the soil we had - that is what it does.

Rainforests are notorious for poor soil. That's why biochar was used (in the Amazon) for row crops. The rest was a big, mixed orchard.

So, each person on Earth need to plant 172 treas.

Sounds much.

And this is not the only problem. You need to keep predator (H.Sapiens) away from these new treas.

I've planted over 400 on my property alone, and the main challenge was keeping other critters away from the saplings. Then there's the thousands I tended to in prison.

I don't think CO2 levels can adequately be compensated by tree planting.
