Why Not Combat Carbon Emissions With Baby Trees that Emit More Carbon For The First 20 Years, You Cretins

Bored Waitrose weasels with gran stand about as a geography student plants a tiny teeny baby tree that will be a teeny tiny snack tonight for some nearby deer, who are licking their lips as they watch from the bushes

“Scientists have debated whether tree planting should be used as a way of combatting carbon emissions, but Mr Waters said there was an urgent need to try new initiatives and the benefits of tree planting go beyond capturing carbon.

“He said: “We are in a climate emergency and that word emergency is really important. We can’t wait for a perfect solution and we have got to try stuff and we’ve got to do it fast.



“”We know trees help deal with flooding, they help your well-being, there’s very good evidence that being around trees reduces your stress and your blood pressure. There’s evidence to show that areas with lots of trees have a lower crime rate.”

“Lee Waters said Wales “cannot wait for the perfect solution” to combat climate change.”

A man standing in a field pausing to recall some more half-read and totally misunderstood bollocks from a spad briefing he fell asleep during.

“There’s evidence to show that areas with lots of trees have a lower crime rate.” Cretinous logic. Maybe he’s right. There’s very little car theft in the Amazon rainforests, very little burglary.

What the idiot doesn’t know is that baby trees are net producers of carbon until they get to their twenties; then they get a job and settle down or something, and make less nasty carbon than they sequester.

For Forest’s Sake

If you actually care about the planet and yours or other people’s kiddies, this science bloke tells you exactly why it’s a counterproductive crock of shite

THE ORIGINAL DRIVEL FROM THE BBC…

Climate change: Free tree offered to every Welsh household
Published6 December 2021

Every household in Wales will be offered a free tree to plant in an effort to help tackle climate change.

People will have a choice of native species to plant in their gardens or have added to woodland on their behalf.

About 1.3 million trees will be made available by the Welsh government, in a scheme which will cost £2m.

Deputy climate change minister Lee Waters said the scheme could help, but there still needed to be a greater increase in planting trees.

“To meet our climate change targets, we have to plant 86 million trees by the end of this decade,” he said.

Every household in Wales will be offered a free tree to plant at home or in a woodland
“That’s an increase every year of 15-fold. So it’s a hell of a challenge, as well as a climate emergency.”

Lee Waters said Wales “cannot wait for the perfect solution” to combat climate change.


Jerry Langford, of Coed Cadw – the Woodland Trust in Wales – said he was confident people would succeed in nurturing trees in their gardens.

“Trees are tough actually,” he said, “you’ve got to treat them pretty badly to kill a tree. So just a bit of tender loving care and it will be fine.

“They need a supply of water and they need to need to make sure they don’t get swamped by competing vegetation.”

The trees will be available from five hubs from March, with a further 20 in the autumn of 2022.

Coed Cadw will plant the trees which people opt not to have in their gardens.
