Already in the year 2004 the Pentagon warned former president Mr. George Bush jr. how the Climate Change might become a national security threat. Oossibly in the next 20 years!

The CIA’s World Fact book shows the global picture.

According to the www.newscientist.com, waiting for miraculous new Technologies to prevent the Climate Change in less than 20 years seems to be futile.

The only way of mitigating Climate Change is Reforestation and Renaturation.

The term is borrowed from German word Renaturalisierung, renaturation means basically the same as Reforestation but in a broader sense and not limited to forests.

The situation today is exactly the opposit. The rate of Deforestation is alarming.

It happens mainly in the poorer countries,  the more affluent societies can afford to protect their forests.

Also much livestock is grown in the poor countries for the benefit of the rich countries.

It becomes imperative to plant as much trees as only possible in order to stop the Climate Change.

The suggestion of Nesseq is to reforest all the Greek islands which are not inhabited by human beings.

That way there will not be a competition between man and nature and nature can revive.

A nice side effect could be, that the migrating birds will find on the reforested island resting places, undisturbed by man.

    Much of the world’s tropical rainforests have either been cut down or are directly threatened with imminent deforestation. Deforestation and forest degradation have resulted in species loss and direct contribution to global warming. Moreover, deforestation accounts for over 20 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions – more than the entire global transportation sector! Our reforestation and avoided deforestation offset projects meet the toughest industry standards.

  45. Brian Howden

    The accelerating destruction of the rainforests that form a precious cooling band around the Earth’s equator, is now being recognised as one of the main causes of climate change. Carbon emissions from deforestation far outstrip damage caused by planes and automobiles and factories.

    The rampant slashing and burning of tropical forests is second only to the energy sector as a source of greenhouses gases according to report published today by the Oxford-based Global Canopy Programme, an alliance of leading rainforest scientists.

  46. Tomas Binsten

    Forests are cut down for many reasons, but most of them are related to money or to people’s need to provide for their families.The biggest driver of deforestation is agriculture. Farmers cut forests to provide more room for planting crops or grazing livestock. Often many small farmers will each clear a few acres to feed their families by cutting down trees and burning them in a process known as “slash and burn” agriculture.

  47. Andre Shelsiate

    Deforestation has not gone unnoticed, as many governmental and nongovernmental agencies around the world are attempting to reduce and reverse the destruction by engaging in reforestation the restoration of deforested regions by planting seeds and or saplings. And they need your help.

  48. Jessica

    Nice Article there 🙂 , but my idea is reforestation and forest preservation carbon offset projects are part of the global warming solution. Forest-based carbon offset projects fight climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere in trees and soil and have many co-benefits for the community and local wildlife.

    Forest preservation creates jobs, maintains and expands wildlife habitats, protects biodiversity, and improves local environmental quality.

    anyway, good luck with your work and your projects.

  49. Dr. Daniel S.

    Yu have a point, but in reforestation, if several native species are used, can provide other benefits in addition to financial returns, including restoration of the soil, rejuvenation of local flora and fauna, and the capturing and sequestering of 38 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare per year.

    The reestablishment of forests is not just simple tree planting. Forests are made up of a diversity of species and they build dead organic matter into soils over time.

    A major tree-planting program in a place like this would enhance the local climate and reduce the demands of burning large amounts of fossil fuels for cooling in the summer.
