1 tree daily for 55 years

Total Global Forest in hectares is about 4,033,060,000.00 (4Billion has)

Total Registered Cars all over the world 1,000,000,000.00 (1 Billion)
x 5 mt per car = 5Billion mt, or 5Billion Hectares of forest needed!

Total number of Coal Power Plants worldwide = 50,000
x 20,000,000 mt average CO2 per plant = 1,000,000,000,000.00 (1 Trillion) hectares of forest needed.

The world; ladies and gentlemen has a deficit of around 1.000,966 Trillion Hectares of Forest needed or roughly about 141.136.338.540 Gazillion Trees needed to be planted.

It really doesn't sound nice at all does it? And you are still hopeful that the climate will change for the better?... highly unlikely!

With only 7 Billion people all over the world... we need to ask each one to plant at least 2Million Trees each!

Considering that we don't stop our ways and decided to stop cutting trees, planting one tree everyday for the next 55 years... then and only then, we might be able to save this planet.

I can think of a more realistic way to do it, but I don't like to sound like some idiot trying to sell you snake oil. I am just curious how you would solve it if it is in your hands.

I'm really curious to know... How are you going to do it?

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
