And yet, a certain whiny little kid is the darling of the left and gets all the headlines, while these guys are actually putting out solutions. Go figure.

They’re both part of the same goal. She’s raising awareness, these guys are putting rhetoric into action.

Not that it’ll change much. They could plant a trillion trees this way and it won’t make a difference if emissions aren’t cut globally in turn.

Probably a billion of the same kind of trees, resulting in a monoculture that will neither help us nor nature. :(

If you're not part of the solution there's good money to be made prolonging the problem.

If it's like another company that does this, they determine the best trees for the area with arborists before hand. In the article they mention 7 or 8 different kinds that they've planted as well.

If the CBC is to be believed, planting more trees is eventually going to cause MORE CARBON than they absorb so, why are we planting trees under the guise that they'll cut our emissions?

Quote:
First, the baseline. Our annual emissions.

Canada emits roughly 700 megatonnes of CO2 each year.

This does not include any impacts from forests or other parts of our landscape, such as wetlands and farmland. Canada has historically excluded land-use-related emissions and absorptions in its official accounting, and with good reason, if the goal is to reduce emissions on paper.

That's because our trees, in particular, have actually hurt our bottom line.

For the past 15 years, they've been "more of a source than a sink," said Dominique Blain, a director in the science and technology branch of Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Canada's managed forests were a net contributor of roughly 78 megatonnes of emissions in 2016, the most recent year on record.

As with alot of things to do with climate change, this tree planting scheme appears to be another case of ignoring or altering reality to suit your agenda while claiming a solution especially if that solution is another wild ass plan that will, for some odd reason make someone rich.

So, here's to clear cutting every fucking inch of forest in Canada because as we all know, trees burn, trees die and trees decompose all of which add to our carbon footprint. And, given that we haven't been able to manage our forests properly for decades, this latest attempt at altering our emissions by planting more trees may be another diversion designed to create even more carbon which can then be blamed on humans meaning more cuts and radical solutions to eliminate the supposed "man made emission problem".

Oh, I get it!
After 10,000+ years, God and Mother Nature could not agree on how to plant trees! Enter Mr.Roboto to save the world!!

Best of all, drones don't need coffee breaks, tents to sleep in, worker's comp, maternity, etc. And like ATMs, they'll charge a new fee to use them.
Don't just hire more tree planters, that would create jobs. The LAST thing gov't and the 1% want to do.

And in 20 years there will be a rich new source of lumber to harvest, again.

If loans for $350,000 trucks and $750,000 processors are what makes you a slave.
BTW that would be more like 40 years, although there was a Christmas tree shortage this year.
Holy shit this year the lot wanted $55 for a Xmas tree. In a town you can walk 10m beyond the town limits and find one yourself.

Oh puh-lease. All she did was repeat the same crap we've been hearing for years now, while she got a once-in-a-lifetime vacation meeting celebrities, heads of state of being feted like Christ coming to cleanse the temple.

The awareness is already there. What's needed are solutions that aren't knee-jerk solutions (like powering modern economies on the vagaries of weather). Greta provided none.

Anybody hearing Greta raising their awareness there is hearing things.

What I'm hearing is such a ridiculous, teenage, dysphoric fantasy it's making me laugh.

Yeah, Yeah, I know...

Image right?
