One-third of all global carbon emissions since 1750 have come from land use change, or deforestation. Reforestation is the most scalable, deployable technology for repairing the past and addressing climate change. There is science behind both the urgency to reverse climate change and the ability of forestry to do so. A recent study commissioned by C2I, the parent company of GreenTrees, states that reforestation brought to scale around the world can sequester 5.5 gigatons and reduce Global Mean Temperature by 0.2℃ in absolute terms. This is a a 10% solution to a 2℃. As the world races to prevent a 2℃ rise of GMT, reforestation is the only immediately scalable solution. Let’s bend the climate curve together by planting hope.
But there is a genius to nature.
Given that one-third of all the emissions have come from deforestation, it only makes sense that we embrace the power of nature to restore ecosystems around the world and do it on scale.
