Tree planting 'has mind-blowing potential' to tackle climate crisis

Research shows a trillion trees could be planted to capture huge amount of carbon dioxide

Planting billions of trees across the world is one of the biggest and cheapest ways of taking CO2 out of the atmosphere to tackle the climate crisis, according to scientists, who have made the first calculation of how many more trees could be planted without encroaching on crop land or urban areas.

As trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving global heating. New research estimates that a worldwide planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions from human activities that remain in the atmosphere today, a figure the scientists describe as “mind-blowing”.

The analysis found there are 1.7bn hectares of treeless land on which 1.2tn native tree saplings would naturally grow. That area is about 11% of all land and equivalent to the size of the US and China combined. Tropical areas could have 100% tree cover, while others would be more sparsely covered, meaning that on average about half the area would be under tree canopy.

The scientists specifically excluded all fields used to grow crops and urban areas from their analysis. But they did include grazing land, on which the researchers say a few trees can also benefit sheep and cattle.

“This new quantitative evaluation shows [forest] restoration isn’t just one of our climate change solutions, it is overwhelmingly the top one,” said Prof Tom Crowther at the Swiss university ETH Zürich, who led the research. “What blows my mind is the scale. I thought restoration would be in the top 10, but it is overwhelmingly more powerful than all of the other climate change solutions proposed.”...

Even if you don't believe CO2 is causing climate change, this solution has many benefits, and the alternatives being rammed at us have many drawbacks.

There is no climate crisis other than the one that is constantly changing since birth.

Yep, and it is getting colder, not warmer.

The propaganda machine has convinced people that colder = warmer.
It's just like when they convinced people that Germans and Japanese
were behind every stone, and then shifted after WWII to making people
believe that Communists were infiltrating everywhere.

Then we have the good old jest that pure water is bad for you and it
needs fluoride chemical added to make it healthy.

People will believe any lie if it's repeated enough by the authority figures.

Agreed. There's nothing bad about it and everything good about it.

Carbon taxes and cap and trade are the "solutions" being pushed at us.

Like "sin" taxes.

Tobacco taxes never made me smoke less. They stress me out and I smoke more.

You also have the geoengineering "solution. Reflect sunlight back into space.

The problems with that idea:
1)If you use metallic aerosols it reflects RF radiation back down on us. WIFI broiler.
2)Blocks out the stars. I need to see stars, so do insects. People need to see them for inspiration and awe.
3)Reduces evaporation. When you reduce evaporation, you cause drought, and you reduce clouds which also reflect sunlight back into space.

Planting trees has none of these problems and it's fun, and it's cheap, and it increases fertility across the food web.

It also reduces heat and increases moisture on the ground.

I don't like wasting oil, but taxing me so I can't make it to the next gas station doesn't magically result in my car becoming more efficient.

Increase fuel economy standards and I will buy a more fuel efficient car used ten years from now.

Expand Amtrak and I'll ride it.

I tried to buy a Geo when Obama prices went up to $4/gallon, but nobody who had one was selling.

In fact I saw a whole lot more of those cars on the road months after it spiked than I had seen in ten years. Prescient people had garaged them for just such an occasion, then they went back into storage after it dropped.

We can and do effect climate.

But CO2 IMO isn't the primary driver.

The Great Plains in the USA didn't exist until Native Americans created it by slashing and burning the trees.

They did it in order to graze and locate game.

It changed the climate, and it improved the soil because the grazing animals built up layers of decaying grass and dung, which is why it's the breadbasket now.

But it also effected climate and the jet stream.

We don't have to use it the way we do now.

In the SouthEast the corn farmers grew their crops on freshly cut timberland.

It grew better there, because it was less weedy and the trees act as pumps for nutrients. Easier to get a good crop on fresh cut timberland than to till the soil on last year's cropland. They didn't have horses or oxen to pull a plow.

The way we use it now, we aren't replenishing minerals we need in the food we grow.

Planting trees can do that, if we use hugel kultur.

Planting enough of them on river-shores helps the rivers to cut-channel and not be so prone to flooding.

Dunno either so could you make some equal food disperser, like here it's all farms but other eu country's do lack that so it gets too heavy of an idea on one spot?

If you extend that inland a ways and make a buffer zone it can detoxify agricultural runoff before it reaches the stream.

And if you plant native fruit and nut trees and shrubs and other food sources...forest "estuary" for wildlife.

We have a modest nature preserve in Mohawk Park and it "seeds" deer into all the surrounding land.

Includes pollinator refuge for monarchs and other species.
