That’s great!
I am all for more native trees
planted and cared for
in the right places
all across the world.
Trees have other benefits as well.

However,
please remember that one trillion trees can only sequester up to
200 billion metric tons of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) and
that the earth
ALREADY HAS
500 BILLION TONS
of surplus atmospheric CO2.
It’s this surplus atmospheric
500 billion tons that’s driving today’s global warming and,
in turn,
climate change.

Moreover,
humanity is releasing another
43 billion tons of CO2
EVERY YEAR
at an increasing rate
into the atmosphere
via land usage, burning fossil fuels, etc.
Indeed,
the UN thinks that we may need to sequester up to
1000 BILLION TONS
of surplus atmospheric CO2 over the next
20 YEARS
to save the world from
global warming.

Hence,
besides planting one trillion new trees,
the world must also
IMMEDIATELY
begin doing things like
applying regenerative agriculture across the world,
building and operating
high-volume direct air CO2 capture machines like those of Carbon Engineering and the prototype technology of MIT University,
and
converting to clean energy
to minimize the prospect of
FAMINE
in America and Europe
and
STARVATION
from Africa to South Asia
By the 2040’s.

We already have all the technology we need to stall and even reverse global warming.
We only lack the political will.

To encourage rapid conversion to clean energy around the world,
responsible countries may need to work together as a team and
use a combination of carbon tariffs, sanctions and subsidies.
Of course,
each and every one of us
can also play an instrumental role in saving the world from climate change in numerous ways.
Indeed,
now more than ever before at this critical point in history,
the choices of billions of people
can easily save or destroy the world,
as we know it today.
