Deforestation and CO2 capture

This last century has dramatically modified natural ecosystems altering, damaging and even destroying the the environment.

Has greatly increased the contamination and afforestation has notably decreased worldwide, be it mountains, jungle, forest, urban trees, etc., which causes a great imbalance because large quantities of CO2 and other gases and there are not enough forest stands to absorb it.

This equation translates into serious environmental problems such as those caused by the climate change.

La deforestation It is a serious problem all over the world since the insufficient amount of forest stands allows CO2 to remain in the atmosphere for a long time.

To counteract the effects of air pollution, not only must gas emissions be reduced but also the amount of afforestation around the world. These are the most convenient solutions so far as technology has failed to achieve any efficient method to capture CO2 artificially.

Preserve the Amazon it is vital because it is the lung of the planet. It is the largest forest mass and with the greatest capacity to capture CO2 in the world, but it has undergone serious modifications due to deforestation to give rise to different economic activities. It is only in recent years that measures have begun to stop the destruction of the Amazon.

Reforestation cannot be random, it is necessary to take into account which species are appropriate in each site, choose the autochthonous ones since they are the ones to improve and are adapted to the climatic and environmental conditions of the place.

Stopping deforestation and implementing strong afforestation plans are essential policies to reduce the amount of CO2 and help stop climate change.

Promote the use of alternative energies en masse, afforestation plantation and little use of the Fossil fuels It is part of the formula to improve the health of the planet and it is the responsibility of all states to do so.

    It is easy to see that the solutions you propose are a carbon copy of those that green organizations have instilled as unique and monolithic solutions. There are alternatives, which the blog's author will probably never have known about, which include reforestation through better exploitation of forest resources, or caring for the environment through caring for the economy (poverty is the number one cause). 1 deforestation; not commercial logging)
