To keep Earth habitable we need to plant trees.
If one little outfit can do this, it’s not entirely crazy to imagine multiplying it 1,000-fold . . . and suddenly you’re planting 100 million a day. Not every day in every climate. But 200 such days around the globe? That would be 20 billion a year. (There are 3 trillion now, but every additional 20 billion have to help.)
This charismatic mayor is planting a million in her home town before she leaves office in 2022.
Share her TED Talk with your mayor? In addition to planting trees, it builds community.
This entrepreneur/philanthropist plants trees to rescue orphans. He is my friend John Noel, and told me of his plan a dozen years ago. Lo and behold, 30,000 of the 300,000 fast-growing hardwood trees he planted are now ready for harvest . . . and look what it’s done for the orphanage . . . and should continue to do in perpetuity.
In case you’re rich and want to make a similar investment, I can hook you up.
