Letter: Plant more trees

 
Posted12/2/2022 1:00 AM

If climate change is the existential threat that they say it is, then we need to do everything possible to prevent or limit it.

But we are not.

 

Climate change activists are only focused on one thing: the elimination of the sources of new carbon dioxide.

They say nothing about the reduction of carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere or the addition of new oxygen. And we can do both of those at very little cost or sacrifice.

We should be in a mad rush to plant trees. Billions of them. Not only do they remove carbon dioxide from the air and replace it with new oxygen, but they also remove particle pollution as well.
