PLANTING TREES FOR THE CLIMATE

Posted on: May 4, 2021

New Zealand Is Planting 1 Billion Trees to Fight Climate Change | Trees to  plant, Climate change, Climates

THIS POST IS A REVIEW OF THE ENVIRONMENTALISM PROPOSAL THAT PLANTING TREES IS CLIMATE ACTION

The connection between climate science and eco wacko climate activism

The connection here is the carbon cycle with specific reference to photosynthesis and the sequestration of carbon dioxide in soils. In this contextthe eco wackos claim that climate change is an environmentalism issue where human activity has interfered with nature’s ability to remove and sequester CO2. The environmentalism sin in this case is deforestation. It follows then that therefore the solution to climate change lies in the envornmentalism of humans backing off from their destruction of forests and planting more trees. That is, to fight climate change, humans must adopt a more eco friendly lifestyle that will allow the forests to recover that will in turn increase CO2 sequestration in the soil.

The Power of Trees | Climate Matters

This eco wacko science of climate change presents the climate action needed as a more eco wacko relationship between humans and forests in which humans can take climate action simply by curtailing deforestation and by planting trees. This view, that planting trees is the climate action needed derives from an eco wacko view of the global warming issue. Here we present the available data for trees and photosynthesis and show that this view of climate change and climate action is inconsistent with the data.

How Is Eco-Anxiety Tied To Climate Change? - Science World

THE DATA ARE AS FOLLOWS

  1. THERE ARE 8.7E9 HECTARES OF LAND ON EARTH WHERE TREES CAN BE GROWN.
  2. OF THAT, 5.5E9 HECTARES ALREADY HAVE TREES.
  3. THIS MEANS THAT THE MAXIMUM PHOTOSYNTHESIS IMPACT OF HUMANS PLANTING TREES IS (8.7-5.5)/8.7 OR LESS THAN 37%. OF TOTAL LAND PHOTOSYNTHESIS.
  4. HOWEVER, 50% TO 80% OF THE WORLD’S PHOTOSYNTHESIS IS IN THE OCEAN. TAKING THE MIDPOINT OF THIS RANGE WE CAN SAY THAT ON AVERAGE THE OCEAN PROVIDES 65% OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS AND LAND ONLY 35%.
  5. THEREFORE, THE MAXIMUM HUMAN IMPACT OF PLANTING TREES IS TO INCREASE PHOTOSYNTHESIS BY 37% OF 35% OR ABOUT 13% AT MOST.
  6. THIS MAXIMUM POSSIBLE IMPACT OF HUMANS PLANTING TREES IS WELL WITHIN THE UNCERTAINTY RANGE OF GLOBAL PHOTOSYNTHESIS ESTIMATIONS.
  7. THEREFORE NO MEASURABLE OR STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT PHOTOSYNTHESIS EFFECT IS POSSIBLE BY HUMANS PLANTING TREES.
  8. AS DESCRIBED IN A RELATED POST, THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE IS SPECIFIC TO THE BURNING OF FOSSIL FUELS BY HUMANS SINCE THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION AND THE CLIMATE ACTION DEMANDED BY CLIMATE SCIENCE IS A CESSATION OF BURNING FOSSIL FUELS. LINK: https://tambonthongchai.com/2020/06/19/vegandiet/
