I know I have planted way more trees than at least 99% of the virtue signaling believers.
They're on my land so no one will be cutting them down for decades.

That's a lie and easy to debunk.
If they had accounted for urban heat island effect then why does the new data set drop hundreds of temperature stations and only using 114 that are located in remote areas?
Oh a large portion of the sea temperature data like what was used in the "oceans and cryosphere report" has been thrown out too. Or retracted in nature which seems to be worse.

In the 1970s I rented rooms to tree planters. When they came home from work at night they were very, very quiet. But their clothes were shredded.

That scene went away when the Federal contracts dried up. But what with 'kids these days', a better solution that crawling on hillsides with a Hoedad, would be tree-planting drones.

Grasslands hold more carbon per acre than forests. Grass is 80% root and trees are 50%. Grass roots are incredibly dense, and they go down as far as 40'-50'.

There are more grasslands on the planet than there are forests.

Grass grows much faster than trees. (Bamboo is a grass, by the way.)

When grass is grazed, it abandons a proportional amount of roots, and it then regrows new roots, in that 80/20 proportion. This PUMPS a massive amount of carbon into the soil.

If we restored all the native grasslands around the world, and we managed them in a way that mimics the large herds of herbivores that used to be there - we could have the atmosphere back BELOW 350ppm in LESS THAN A DECADE.

Cows could SAVE the climate.

The appropriate comparison between hemp and bamboo will be in here: duckduckgo.com/?q=hemp+vs+bamboo+for+carbon+capture, but the first result is comparing fabrics instead of carbon capture.

Either will be 'faster' than trees. No cows required.

Thought it was settled science. 2 years ago cows were destroying the climate.

Turn grass into poop and trample it underfoot? Why not use real herbivores?

Sheep belch methane too.

Rather than burying grass etc. better ferment / distill the hell out of it to produce gas and fluids to replace gas and oil products from non-renewable sources.
Bury whatever is left over after that.
