Planting trees alone won't save the planet.
According to a study planting #trees
wherever possible on this planet could sequester 150Gt CO2 from the atmosphere. That's 4 times as much #CO2
as we emit every year, or in other words: It would give us 4 more years to get to #ZeroEmissions
. But we do have to get to zero emissions anyway - we can never compensate #emissions
in the long run.
But when we get to zero emissions there is still a surplus of CO2 in the atmosphere and to get it out, trees are still the best solution, much better than any technical solution.
) is very important to save existing forests. If we go on like now by 2035 the #amazon
could start to emit instead of sequester CO2.
's ambition is to sequester 250 million tonnes of CO2. That is 0,25Gt, so that only gives us 2,43 additional days to reach zero emissions. At least according to my math - please correct me if I'm wrong.
