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 as much as 15% of the world’s current emission output. This scale will lead to a ten-percent reduction of Global Mean Temperature (GMT) in absolute terms. Click here to read the Executive Summary of the study.
As the world races to prevent a 2 degree C rise of GMT, reforestation is the only immediately scalable solution. Unfortunately, and far too often, people get caught up and limited by mechanical solutions as the only answer. There is a genius to nature. Given 1/3 of all the emissions has come from deforestation, it only makes sense that we embrace the power of nature and restore ecosystems around the world and do it on scale.
