Here's a little bit of good news. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which we highly recommend attending, there is a move afoot to plant a trillion trees.
There used to be 6 trillion trees. Now there are 3 trillion. By 2030 the goal is to have 4 trillion, which scientists estimate would significantly stabilize global warming and maybe even slightly reverse it, because trees capture and store carbon.
Now trees don't stop people from chanting "drill baby drill", unless they fall on them, which isn't a bad idea, but trees, who do not as a policy carry hand guns or pray, could still help with global warming. We haven't seen a response, but our guess is Senator Cruz and the former President #45 are against it for a myriad of reasons, including it's fake, trees are fake, and global warming is fake. And for that matter Davos, Switzerland is fake.
In fact, if you want a great website and movement mocking the fake news movement, go to the Birds Aren't Real website here and read the NY Times article on the Gen Z Conspiracy everyone loves here.
Several countries including China and the US have made commitments to planting over a hundred billion trees, which is a great start.
The start of summer is here with the long holiday weekend- unless you're a Republican and don't believe in summer or seasons. Then it's just a long weekend. Either way, enjoy the sunshine and the day off before we get back to the grind.
