Should we be planting more trees wherever we can?

at the very least, in areas which are at risk of erosion. Planting them around rivers can also really help wildlife.
Yes, but just don't do it on a riverbed when the dam is left open and you know it's going to be closed. This actually happened in my city, and I was like? How do you think the fledgling of trees are going to survive months of being *in* the river?

@thewindupbirdchronicles where did they do that

Yup. On the scale of the works of ancient Egypt.

It would be a permanent commitment due to the temp nature of carbon tie-up and O2 produced. Must be part of comprehensive human pop reduction efforts. perennial agr (keeps soil structure and microbes) , cleaner power, cleaner and more mass transportation
(trains 0.13 lb/mi; planes 0.40lbs/pass. mile; cars 0.5-1lb/mi) , less meat production (methane), and moving toward longer term life of produced goods with less non-sustainable packaging.

@Yeranouhi Overpopulation drives all the perceived ills of humanity. ZPG (zero population growth) lost out to rising conservatism in 1980s.

It will reduce due to exhausted resources if nothing else. Good ole Malthus pointed that out centuries ago. Humes are dumber than they look. We could have done things so other Earthlings and humans could continue for a very long time, but noooooo... O well, Nature bats last and carries a HUGE stick. I'm a-rootin' for her! 😁

P.S. COVID is a blip compared to what humes will face. Simple eco-biology.
