The generation that destroys the environment is not the generation that pays the price. That is the problem.

Wangari Maathai

We all dream of saving the world from deadly aliens and monsters at least once in our life. If you’re anything like me then it’s probably an annual dream whenever we are reminded about the catastrophic events occurring all over the world every year.

The one giant deadly monster that we need to destroy and save our planet from is CLIMATE CHANGE. The problem of climate change is clear and evident to all of us. The constant rise in atmospheric temperature, increasing rate of deforestation, outburst of viruses, crop failures, increase in seawater levels, decrease in ground water table, disappearing of large numbers of birds and many more. It’s an endless list.

Thanks to us that we have created a world full of advancements at the cost of our planet. It is a matter of debate, protests, and social media campaigns every year and it takes no time for people to forget them and return to their routine lives.

The problem of climate change is undoubtedly unavoidable and it is pretty serious.

So how can we really save the world from the catastrophic disasters taking place due to climate change?

If you ask anyone the same question the first thing that will pop into their minds is, “PLANT MORE TREES”. YES, we definitely should plant as many trees as possible but do we know how do trees really help?

Planting more trees.

As we all know trees provide oxygen to all the life that exist on this planet and also absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  But do we know how much oxygen does a tree produce?

Firstly we must understand that the amount of oxygen produced by a tree depends on various factors such as the age of the tree, the species of tree, and the surrounding conditions. On average a 100ft tall tree with 18” diameter can produce 2721.554 kg of oxygen per year which can roughly support 10 lives per year.

A single tree absorbs carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 pounds per year and release enough oxygen back into the atmosphere to support two human beings. But we must also remember that trees themselves absorbs some portion, roughly half of the oxygen they produced for its own processes and release carbon dioxide during night time where there is no sunlight available for photosynthesis.

As it is popularly known that Amazon rain-forest is the earth’s largest biodiversity. The contribution of the Amazon rain -forest to keeping the earth’s atmosphere cool is immense. Similarly the number of trees we plant the more it will be helpful in keeping the atmosphere cooler.

But is that it? Is growing more trees the only way we can save our planet? Yes to a certain extent but not entirely.
