In 2018, a United Nations’ Panel on Climate Change estimated that we’d need to plant 1 billion hectares of forest by 2050 to keep the globe from warming a full 1.5 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels. Not only is that “undoubtedly achievable,” according to the study’s authors, but global tree restoration is “our most effective climate change solution to date… There are [expensive] technologies people are working on to take carbon dioxide out of the air. And trees do it — for nothing.”

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)

Makes you wonder how many silly people who can’t even work out the importance of trees. Especially the ones being paid by the Taxpayers Purse.

Yes it is sad, but we can plant a tree a day. You and I can make a difference together until we form a groups of tree warriors around the planet. Do you wish to start the Warriors of trees group? Yes you can start blogging about it. 🍀🍀🍀🍀
