Twitter for Trees
The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) started a campaign to plant trees: for every follower on Twitter it plants one tree.
But is planting trees really the solution to the climate crisis? Is planting trees always „good“? Who guarantees that the trees will be freshly planted and not just bought somewhere. Will they be climate-friendly trees that really take up more carbon than they produce in the life-circle and store it long enough? Will these treesbe genetically engineered? Will the land they are planted on be privatized? What’s the whole story, Achim?
