PR Firm Promoting Forest Conservation, Reforestation
Deforestation is directly responsible for about 20 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to the carbon released when forests are burned, deforestation cripples the planet’s capacity to filter harmful CO2 from our air, which compounds the greenhouse effect, global warming, climate change and extreme weather. The good news is that forest conservation and reforestation are part of the solution.
If all carbon emissions stopped today, our climate problems will continue to intensify because of existing carbon levels in the atmosphere. Energy conservation and renewable energy are critical, but we need carbon-capture strategies to help restore balance to our atmosphere and ecosystems.
Trees and forests are known as carbon sinks because they can capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air, return the oxygen to the atmosphere and store the carbon for centuries. Trees and forests can absorb some of the carbon dioxide that we all produce in our daily lives at home and work.
Unfortunately, the industrial age has deforested many regions of the world and the remaining forests are under siege. We can reverse the trend now by demanding forest conservation and reforesting as much land as possible.
With the help of foundations, corporations, governments, NGOs and donors, we can conserve existing forests and plant more than 100 million new trees in Tanzania. We will plant millions of more trees, as part of comprehensive sustainability programs in Burundi, DR Congo, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda. It’s one of the largest carbon capture projects on the planet today.
