Forest Restoration Shown To Be Overwhelmingly The Top Climate Change Solutions- Swiss University ETH

A comprehensive study conducted by the Swiss University, Zurich has shown that "planting billions of trees across the world is by far the biggest and cheapest way to tackle the climate crisis, according to scientists, who have made the first calculation of how many more trees could be planted without encroaching on crop land or urban areas."


As trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving global heating. New research estimates that a worldwide planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions that have been pumped into the atmosphere by human activities, a figure the scientists describe as “mind-blowing”.


This result is also significant as there have been many promising advancements in artificial carbon sequestration technologies, such as factories that absorb CO2 from the atmosphere "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63S0t4k_Glw" , as well as concrete that traps CO2 from the atmosphere, "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeKUlEOJ0p0". Despite these developments, they cannot compete with the immense efficiency of a plants metabolism that naturally draws CO2 out of the atmosphere to create its own food and energy.
