Planting 1.2 trillion trees could neutralize CO2 emissions

An ambitious ecologist thinks he may have discovered the secret to neutralizing CO2 emissions on planet Earth. According to his findings, we need to start planting more trees — 1.2 trillion, to be exact. Considering how serious of a problem climate change is right now, it would be pretty awesome if something as straightforward as planting trees could completely cancel out the CO2 emissions of the past decade. But is that actually attainable?…“Trees literally just make people happier in urban environments, they improve air quality, water quality, food quality, ecosystem service, it’s such an easy, tangible thing.”
