Scientists and industrialists are breaking their heads to develop newer/better/effecient products/equipments that will produce lesser pollutants into our atmosphere.
One area that fewer people are discussing/investing is in reforestations, trying to undo the damage of deforestation. Yes, regreening our planet earth.
Trees are just one of NATURE’s product which are very effecient in capturing Carbon products produced by industries not only in the EU, but throughout the world.
Trees has the mechanism to CONVERT WASTE PRODUCTS (CO2) CREATED BY HUMAN BEINGS into another (trees’) waste product-OXYGEN, which we HUMAN BEINGS, badly needed.
When EU countries/financiers would engage into Industrial Tree Plantations (ITPs)in Third World Countries,
1. The Investors are AWARDED CARBON CREDITS. But for MOST people in the third world countries, this means a better/new lease of life-through employment. Better living conditions for them too!
2. The INVESTORS are AWARDED CARBON CREDITS FOR THEIR EFFORTS. In return they made the our PLANET a better place to live in (this is the only HOME for all of us!!!!) with more fresh OXYGEN TO BREATH!!!!.
3. The INVESTORS are also REWARDED their Country(men) opportunities through increased employment.
4. The INVESTORS are also REWARDED with MULTI-LATERAL Trading Opportunities between THEM, THE HOST COUNTRIES, AND IT’S NEIGHBORS due to increased PURCHASING POWER of the Host
5. Everybody who WORKED OR ARE INVOLVED IN THE INVESTMENTS IN THE ITPs (BANKERS, TRADERS, MANUFACTURERS ETC.)WILL REALLY ENJOY THE FRUITS of having HELPED!!! ONE ANOTHER.-A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE!!!! for everyone due to Abundant supply not only of MONEY but FRESH OXYGEN as well!!!!
6. Most of the INDUSTRIALIST/INVESTORS got burnt when they have gone into investing in the Industrial Tree Plantations (ITPs)in the period 1960’s-1980’s, because of poor ROI. A LOT of EFFORTS was expended in converting their INVESTMENTS into CASH again.
However, with the ADVENT OF KYOTO PROTOCOL, CARBON TRADING SCHEMES, ETC. all the PROBLEMS of the PAST HAS COME TO PASS. INVESTORS COULD NOW CASH IN on their INVESTMENTS in ITPs even WITHOUT CUTTING A SINGLE TREE thru CARBON CREDITS TRADING SCHEMES. –ISN’T IT WONDERFUL???!!!!
I guess, EVERYONE, not only in EU, BUT THE WHOLE WORLD SHOULD GET INVOLVED to convince our INDUSTRIALIST, INVESTORS, TRADERS, BANKERS TO GET involved IN INVESTING ON PLANTING TREES through INDUSTRIAL TRR PLANTATIONS.Author : Annelies Maes
