#ForestFacts fact #3
The #WoodWideWeb is a communication network between #trees, #fungi and #MicroOrganisms.

In a #forest's #soil there is a symbiotic network between fungi, #tree #roots and microorganisms. Trees can use this network to communicate and help each other.

* #Saplings, young trees, receive carbon compounds from older trees.
* Trees warn each other e.g. about vermin and poisonous plants.
* Sick trees get enzymes from healthy trees
* If a tree dies lots of its nutrients of the tree go into the network

#ForestFacts fact #2:
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.
Also #forestation (especially #proforestation) is very important to save existing forests. If we go on like now by 2035 the #amazon #rainforest could start to emit instead of sequester CO2.

The #GreatGreenWall'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.

#introduction

The #GreatGreenWall is Africa's flagship initiative to combat the increasing #desertification. Led by the African Union, the initiative aims to transform the lives of millions of people by creating a mosaic of green and productive landscapes across North Africa. (Wikipedia)

Follow this account to read about the #history, #ambition, #challenges and #results of the GGW. I will also post #news articles, #ForestFacts, describe the wall's #partners and the Great Green Wall #film.

I'm a private person doing this in my spare time, but if this account gets lots of followers I'll contact the people behind the GGW and ask if I can join their social media team and maintain an official account.

Another one of those pulp fiction covers that lack a book. Some day some person will write this book and then realise that the cover is already made!
