  • To meaningfully address climate change, the United States and the rest of the world should prioritize reforestation efforts.

“The fact remains that harnessing the power of nature to fight climate change is one of the greatest tools we have at our disposal. If implemented properly, natural climate solutions could account for more than one-third of the emissions reductions we need by 2030.”
