The answer is simple. Breed more whales. Each whale during its life absorbs 33tons of carbon and, when it dies and sinks, it deposits that carbon on the ocean floor taking it out of the atmosphere for centuries. By comparison, a tree only absorbs about 48lbs of carbon. Also, whale excrement fertilizes the ocean floor and creates phytoplankton blooms, which also absorb huge amounts of carbon from the atmosphere.

Fill the oceans up with whales and everyone stop eating meat to end the cattle trade and it’ll be sorted in a decade.

I love how the Republicans are now changing their tune on Covid as the realisation has set in that their stance is killing off their voter base

Maybe should take a look at what’s going on at the southern border. Record high for July.

Have Americans started eating fin whales?

A big change is needed to slow down the potentially catastrophic environment we are creating on this planet.

I feel sorry for those people in Greece at the moment having to deal with wildfires tearing through their homes and the wildlife that is being destroyed as well.

Certainly needs to be better protection and regulation on cutting down trees, similar to that of coral reefs really.

Fair play to Fox, they started to turn before the election, even they could see the absolute lunacy unfolding with Trump and his supporters. That as5hole has set the country back years sadly.

They have daily, multiple Trump bashing articles on CNN.

The real problem lies in the fact that we have built a monetary system that relies on perpetual growth in a world of finite resources. Impossible to achieve, but equally impossible to change course.

I don't know where the tipping point is, but we are definitely approaching it now.

The Four Horsemen are saddled up and ready to ride.

The reality is we probably only have to re-home the 211m people in Brazil. Empty the country, let the rain forest run riot and do its stuff. Jobs a good 'un.
