The planet has a new face now: sprawling urban landscapes and commercial cities that features tall skyscrapers and many other artificial edifices that define modern living. We may see a few plants here and there in an effort of some establishments to maintain an environment-friendly image but it is rare to see a thriving natural environment in the heart of the city. Even out there in rural areas, the forests aren’t as alive as it once was and quite balding too. Trees are growing far in between and the local wildlife also tries their best to adapt to the changing landscape. Since climate change is now considered a pressing issue by the majority of the world’s population and governments all over the world make a conscious effort in addressing the problem while we still have time to act on it.
Both public and private organizations help one another in trying to address deforestation issues. Even in third-world countries that are plagued by a greater deal of political, social, and economic issues, they understand that they have more to lose if they don’t do something about the majority of the climate-related problems we now face. They have fewer resources than progressive nations and what they lack in funding for innovative studies and research to find the solution to climate change, they can do something more practical and tangible that won’t require as many resources: plant trees. Yes, literally planting trees may be a simple solution but it is definitely one of the most effective solutions we can come up with to deter climate change from progressing.
If we look at the bigger picture, the Earth is just but a shadow of the lush planet that it once was. Gone were the wide forests thriving with plant-life and animal life. Trees not only die on their own because of climate change and wildfire, for instance, but also because humans cut it through illegal logging and for a variety of reasons such as the expansion of residential, agricultural, and commercial areas. Seeing how extensive the damage is, it only makes sense why a public-private partnership is a must and we should commend nations like Morocco that does its part in saving the planet from the mess it is in now.
If we continue these reforestation efforts, we may have a shot in increasing our chances of minimizing the negative impacts of climate change and make the planet a little more hospitable for human life and to all the living organisms that call this world its home. We can all take inspiration from these tree-planting initiatives of less progressive nations like Morocco and Sri Lanka. If they can do it, there is no reason why a country more powerful and richer like the US can’t fill its land with trees and plants considering it has one of the highest carbon emissions on land.
If we are having issues with trees in our neighborhood, let’s not act rashly and decide on cutting it when a little trimming can solve the problem for you.
