The climate crisis is well and really upon us. Furthermore, there is just a single method to handle it – planting trees! Prior this month, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology discharged the discoveries of their investigation on environmental change. Their examination on reestablishing woodlands to decrease the degrees of carbon dioxide in the climate demonstrated that on the off chance that we plant 1 trillion trees on Earth, we could bid farewell to an Earth-wide temperature boost.
Understanding the significance of trees, the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has started the Green Legacy venture in the African nation. They will likely plant 4 billion trees this mid year and each native has been called upon to do their part and plant at least 40 seedlings.
On 29 July, the nation welcomed everybody to cooperate and plant 200 million trees in 12 hours. Toward the day’s end, Ethiopia’s clergyman of advancement and innovation, Dr Getahun Mekuria, uncovered that they had outperformed the objective by an immense edge. More than 350 million seedlings were planted making another world record!
As indicated by CNN, the nation’s timberland spread had drained throughout the years because of which it confronted land corruption, soil disintegration, repetitive dry seasons and flooding. To battle these issues, the administration even announced an occasion on 29 July with the goal that government workers also could partake in the Green Legacy activity.

As indicated by The Guardian, the past world record for most trees planted in one day was made by India. Our own one of a kind desi volunteers planted more than 50 million trees in the year 2016.
We think it is the ideal opportunity for us to join together, plant significantly more saplings and recover our reality record! Provided that we don’t, waterfront urban areas like Mumbai could suffocate by 2050.
