Reminded me of this An Acclaimed War Photographer Turns Her Lens on Canada�s Tree Planters. Some pretty cool shots in there.

Plant a trillion trees and we might accidentally make the place nicer. ;)

We could also just not cut down half a trillion trees to begin with. :lol:

At around 130 million new lives every year, that may be impossible.
Think about it. Half a million years ago (give or take) we tamed fire. Yet despite all the major paradigm shifts in energy generation, 3/4 of the world still burns wood (and shit) for heat, light and cooking. Plus all the wood needed for housing.

David Attenborough said that "nature is out of balance". But that's because the human population is out of balance. Nature used to be really good at killing us off but modern medicine has changed all that. Every year the gap increases between the birth/survival rate and the death rate leaving us with a deficit of deaths, or if you prefer, a surplus of people.
Now obviously you need your birth/survival rate to be higher than your death rate if you want to succeed and thrive as a species. But that rate today, as previously stated, is way out of balance.

I agree. We need a good meteor strike. ;)

Deep down we all know Thanos is right. That's what makes him so scary.

But in the meantime, I think I've got an idea re the employment rate...

If there aren’t more breakthroughs on superbugs then there will be a balance.

Meanwhile, in Doug Ford’s Ontario, Doug recently killed funding to the province’s 50 Million Tree Program, a program that had already planted more than 27 million trees across the province since it was founded in 2008 under the previous Liberal government and with a goal to have 50 million trees planted by 2025.

Fortunately Trudeau threw the program a lifeline that will keep it operating for at least another 4 years with federal funding.

50 million trees? Hmmm, do you think that would have covered the few thousand hectares of boreal forest the Wynned Bag wanted to lop down for cattle farms?

It might replace some of the rainforest that got chopped down in Brazil last month. It won't replace the people who were living in it and were likely killed because they wouldn't cede their land to cattle farmers.

So, should we care?

At this point, it's tempting to dismiss lumber as completely irrelevant to concerns about carbon emissions. But the authors show there are exceptions. In Canada, where timber is a major contributor to the economy, wood products end up sequestering 2.4% of its annual emissions, or over 30% of its industrial emissions. In Sweden, those numbers are 9% of the total emissions and over 70% of industrial emissions. So, when it comes to setting national emissions targets, there are countries where harvesting forests really matters.


How much carbon does our lumber sequester?

Fake news.
No boreal forest was cut down for cattle farms.
