    We forgot to credit photographer and video maker Emmanuel Rondeau for some of the footage used in this video (00:06-00:10 / 00:28-00:33 / 01:51-02:04 / 02:52-02:54). Here is his Facebook page: . We apologize for this.

    If they planted ultra dense wind breaks around every farm, with thinner wind breaks crossing larger fields globally, that would not only absorb CO2 emissions, but it would also improve soil quality by reducing top soil erosion. Good for the environment and for agriculture.

    What sillyness. CO2 goes down every year. If Climate Change is real it would have already gone down for the same amount of time as it goes up each year.

    If we reduce level CO2, those trees will not have enough CO2 to grow

    I don't think this is just the most effective way... I thing this is the only way! Everything else is just for money making and regular political s**t.

    Step 1: stop intensive factory farming 🚫☣🚱 Step 2: reduce, reuse, recycle ♻️ Step 3: replant /replenish native species 🌿🌳🌻🏵🌼🌺🐝🕷🦗🐞🦠🦎🐸
