Trees Againts Global Warming

In Plant on January 29, 2009 at 9:21 am

Trees are important tools in the fight to stave off global warming, because they absorb and store the key greenhouse gas emitted by our cars and power plants, carbon dioxide (CO2), before it has a chance to reach the upper atmosphere where it can help trap heat around the Earth’s surface.

One of many actions to reduce global warming is plant trees when you travel,

  • 1 tree every 2,000 miles (3200 km) by car.
  • 1 tree every 1300 miles (2000 km) by plane.
  • 1 tree every 100 gallons (375 liters) of gasoline.
  • 1 tree every 1000 kilowatt-hours (one kwhr ~= 1.9 pounds CO2).
