Can cloning redwoods help fight climate change?
A recent study revealed Earth is currently warmer than any given point in the past 11,300 years. So what should we do?
One idea: Clone and plant a lot of gigantic trees with a glutton’s appetite for carbon dioxide. Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is spearheading a movement to plant California’s towering redwood trees in Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Ireland, Canada, Germany, and other parts of the United States.
According to NASA previous research has demonstrated that these monstrous organisms are capable of digesting much more carbon than any other tree on the planet.
