There are many things that need to happen to change this path were on when it comes to climate change, both individually, and on the state and federal level. One simple thing we can do to help right the ship is to plant more trees. Research shows that the restoration of trees remains among the most effective strategies for climate change mitigation. There’s room for an extra nearly 1 billion hectares of canopy cover, which could store 205 gigatonnes of carbon. The land that can be forested doesn’t include cities or cropland, but it does include grazing lands, which means we would all have to eat less beef.
