Pitch

By planting 30 billion kiri trees per year, 30 billion tons of CO2 / year can be captured.


Description

Summary

Planting 30 billion trees per year will capture CO2, then burying the trunks and proceeding to an intelligent regulation of the global climate.
Global deforestation continues at an alarming rate: 7 million hectares of forest are destroyed each year, an area roughly the size of Portugal.

We cut 15 billion trees per year. So to recover forests, it is necessary to plant 30 billion trees per year, so that the figure is significant.

THE PLANET FORESTS WILL REVERT

You can plant 30 billion new kiri trees per year and then bury the trunks, trapping the CO2 and returning this greenhouse gas to the subsoil and proceeding to an intelligent control of global climate, by regulating free carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Making the forests of the planet green. The task will be carried out by the multinational AEON of Japan with experience in forest recovery, so as not to repeat the mistakes made with green credits. Global warming is turning the frozen deserts of Canada and Northern Siberia into areas suitable for new forests, so agricultural areas will not be invaded in the development of this project.
$ 30 billion will be allocated per year for this purpose. The Global Reforestation project will make it possible to move from the climate crisis to the complete control of the planetary climate through the regulation of free CO2 in the atmosphere. New techniques have been developed for massive plantings, which use airplanes that stray the suitable soils with seeds. So the recovery of forests can be done in the medium term and in the time of a generation to achieve Humanity intelligently interact with the global climate producing an average temperature suitable for the best sustainability.

What actions do you propose?

The kiri tree can purify infertile soil, it also absorbs 10 times more CO2 than any other species.
It can reach up to 27 m in height and a trunk between 7 and 20 m in diameter. It has 40 cm wide leaves. Resists fire by regenerating its roots and growth vessels quickly and also tolerates contamination. It is not necessary to replant as it sprouts after the cut. It thrives in polluted soils and waters and purifies the soil as it grows, from its leaves, rich in nitrogen, provide nutrients to fall and decompose in the soil.
Due to its physiological characteristics, this tree can adapt to a great variety of climates with extreme temperatures of -20 ºC to 45 ºC. Its main characteristic, which makes it unique, is its efficiency when it comes to photosynthesis. This tree consumes more CO2, the main greenhouse gas, and produces more oxygen than the average of other trees. An adult tree can capture 21.7 kg of CO2 every day, which converts it to 6 kg of oxygen.
30 billion adult kiri trees capture 651 billion kg of CO2 each day, or 651,000 tons. The year is 30 billion tons of CO2 captured. As long as the intensive reforestation plan continues on the planet, the percentage of atmospheric CO2 can be reduced between 1.5 and 2 ppm per year. In 40 years maximum it would return to the ideal threshold of 350 ppm and would return to the initial planetary thermo-equilibrium.
The kiri emits large amounts of oxygen and absorbs up to ten times more carbon dioxide than other trees. It is the fastest growing tree of the entire planet and with only eight years it reaches the size of, for example, a 40 year old oak. After cutting, it regenerates vigorously up to 7 times.
Its leaves rich in nitrogen provide good fertilization and its roots prevent soil erosion. It withstands cold and heat well and resists moderate conditions of drought once developed, 1-2 years.
Advantages for the environment
It contains very few oils and resins.
It can be adapted to soils impoverished or contaminated by intensive agriculture.
It is a real solution for soils contaminated by environmental disasters.
Absorbs ten times more CO2 than any other plant.
Prevents erosion like the rest of species.
Improves soil permeability and water retention.
In one year it can reach 6 meters in height.
It has a high resistance to fire, being able to survive temperatures of up to 435º C.
Suitable for agroforestry systems. It is not an exclusive tree.
Uses of the Kiri.
The leaves can be useful as fodder because they have a very high nutritional value, excellent for feeding livestock and also for compost.

Its rapid growth makes it very productive and profitable. Among other benefits, it stands out the excellent quality of its wood, its suitability to recover, control and stabilize soil erosion due to its deep root system and CO2 fixation capacity.
Another use of the Paulownia is the generation of biomass for thermal power plants or home heating, by transforming the crops into pellets. The wood pellet has the shape of small cylindrical pellets that are made by agglomeration and densification of wood, it is an excellent solid biofuel as a substitute or complement to coal, coke and fuel oil and also has neutral CO2 emissions. 2 kg of pellets equals 1 liter of diesel, so the cost per unit of energy is half.
30 billion new trees will be planted per year (we cut 15 billion per year, the equivalent surface area of ??Portugal) and then the logs will be buried, trapping the CO2 and returning this greenhouse gas to the subsoil and proceeding to a control intelligent global climate, by regulating free carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Making the forests of the planet green. The task will be carried out by the multinational AEON of Japan with experience in forest recovery, so as not to repeat the mistakes made with green credits.

Who will take these actions?

The initiative of the Intensive Global Reforestation Project is assumed by the United Nations, which administers international funds in coordination with the nations with areas to be reforested.


Where will these actions be taken?

The Global Intensive Reforestation is concentrated in the areas of the Siberian tundra and Canada to the North, which due to global warming have become suitable for the development of forests. However, smaller projects are focused on all nations to recover their native forests.


In addition, specify the country or countries where these actions will be taken.

Costs/Challenges


What are the proposal’s projected costs?

The project costs are equivalent to 30 billion dollars per year. To obtain these funds, a financial rate of 0.15% will be established on the international and national financial system. These monies will be administered by the United Nations and by a commission composed of all the nations added to the project.


Timeline

In the period of 1-15 years (short term) Reduce CO2 pollution by 40% and stabilize the global average temperature below the threshold of 1.5º C.
In the period of 15-50 years (medium term) Reduce CO2 pollution by 80% and stabilize the global average temperature below the threshold of 1.5º C.
In the period of 50-100 years (long term) Return to 350 ppm of free CO2 in the atmosphere and the global temperature will have descended 1º C
