One way to do something about the rapid climate change is to plant a tree. Or more precisely: 1.2 trillion trees. By creating a network of ecologists across the world, and tying their information together with machine learning models, the Crowther Lab has mapped the entire global forest system, and in doing so has been able to quantify a climate change mitigation solution for the very first time. There are 3 trillion trees on the planet. But more importantly, there is room for 1.2 trillion more, and the results show exactly which parts of the world we need to focus reforestation efforts on. Using this information, reforestation could have a major impact on climate change. The Crowther Lab has a holistic approach in understanding the ecological processes. Simone Bucher van Ligten
