Why Plant Trees on the Interstate

“I want you to act as if the house is on fire, because it is.”

–Greta Thunberg

Forests are burning across the world, releasing more and more carbon dioxide into an already overloaded atmosphere. The world is warming more rapidly than expected. Extreme weather events are increasing. Scientists have now declared a climate “emergency.”

What can we do? Keep the political pressure on our elected officials–and elect officials who are willing to take action on climate change.

But we also need to take our own measures to save the world. Driving and flying less. Eating more vegetables and less meat. Redesigning our homes to be more energy efficient. And planting trees to replace the ones being lost.

This blog is about the trees.
