Vast replenishing of world’s forests could cancel out humans’greenhouse emissions

Independent 16th Feb 2019 Replenishing the world’s forests on a grand scale would suck enough carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to cancel out a decade of human
emissions, according to an ambitious new study. Scientists have established
there is room for an additional 1.2 trillion trees to grow in parks, woods
and abandoned land across the planet. If such a goal were accomplished,
ecologist Dr Thomas Crowther said it would outstrip every other method for
tackling climate change – from building wind turbines to vegetarian
diets.
