Is a newly-planted forest about the same size of the U.S.the only and best chance for planet Earth to recover from negative climate change?

There is no such thing as "climate change."
1. “Whatever the weather, it's not being caused by global warming."
--Atmospheric scientist Dr. Art V. Douglas, Creighton University
2. "There is considerable influence of urban heat release on global temperature estimates."
--Ole Humlum, Professor Emeritus of Physical Geography, University of Oslo
3. "As population centres grow they affect larger and larger areas, which usually will experience a corresponding increase in average temperature."
--Ole Humlum, Professor Emeritus of Physical Geography, U of Oslo
4. "But is it possible that the particular temperature increase observed in the last 100 years is the result of carbon dioxide produced by human activities? The scientific evidence clearly indicates that this is not the case."
--Sallie Baliunas, Astrophysicist, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
5. "The total increase in global warming for the century should be ~0.3 °C, rather than the catastrophic warming of 3-6°C (4-11°F) predicted by the IPCC."
-- Don Easterbrook, Geology Professor, WWU
6. "The main basis of the claim that man’s release of greenhouse gases is the cause of the warming is based almost entirely upon climate models. We all know the frailty of models concerning the air-surface system."
-- Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson
7. "By relying on statistical reconstruction of the last 1000 years, using only the temperature patterns of the last 140 years instead of actual temperature readings, the IPCC report and Summary missed both a major cooling period as well as a significant warming trend during that millennium."
--Vibjörn Karlén Professor Emeritus Physical Geography, Stockholm Univ.
8. "Global warming has become a new religion."
--Nobel Prize Winner for Physics in 1973, Ivar Giaever
9. “Even doubling or tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact, as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide scene and always will.”
– . Geoffrey G. Duffy, a professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering of the University of Auckland, NZ.
10. “The quantity of CO2 we produce is insignificant in terms of the natural circulation between air, water and soil."
Dr. Philip Lloyd, Nuclear Physicist & Chemical Engineer; UN-IPCC Author
11. “I have yet to see credible proof of carbon dioxide driving climate change, yet alone man-made CO2 driving it."
--Dr. G LeBlanc Smith, a retired Principal Research Scientist with Australia’s CSIRO
12. "Warming fears are the worst scientific scandal in history."
-- Dr. Kiminori Itoh, Environmental Physical Chemist, UN-IPCC
13. "I am doing a detailed assessment of the UN IPCC reports and the Summaries for Policy Makers, identifying the way in which the Summaries have distorted the science.”
--Dr. Philip Lloyd, UN IPCC lead author
14. "...the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period."
Nobel Prize Winner for Physics in 1973, Ivar Giaever

Exactly what is there to recover from?
Go ahead and plant those trees. No climate will change except in the location of the trees. And that would be too slight to measure. Also, Gore and his miscreants will still be screaming for Climate Change disaster. But it sure would make the new tree area a lot prettier. Gotta love them trees.

Explain your perceived science relating to your question. What is negative climate change?

Not if our CO2 emissions keep rising. We'd have to keep planting ...
- Obi Wan KnievelLv 77 months ago
No. Of course not, in fact not even close.
The only and best chance to save this planet from extinction (which will happen in 12 years) is a carbon tax. Everyone knows that.

The increased CO2 has "greened" an area equal to twice that of the continental USA so we might still be in with a chance!

NO, we have many alternatives but we lack the will and intelligence to even apply the simplest of solutions - stop burning oil.
It's because we have these moronic republicans in charge - they'll bring us all down because they watch too much foxnews which has reduced their understanding of the world to zero.

No and where do come up with the idea that it is "negative". Who says so? Yeah I know, "scientists" say so....rolling my eyes and shaking my head....WE don't need to recover from fake crises.
Forests don't exist because we plant trees. Forests are an entire ecosystem with plants and animals and micro-organism that that evolved to exist together like every ecosystem. You can't just plant trees where trees don't live because there is a reason they don't live there. Maybe it is grassland. Maybe it is meadow or brush. Maybe it is desert of alpine. If you want to plant a tree in your yard, you can do that and it won't change the climate but it might make you feel like you have. When you hit alarmists with facts and science, they recoil, scream out like Regan in the Exorcist, like you have thrown holy water on them.

In theory, that would help. In practice, can you think of any places where (1) trees would thrive and (2) the saplings would not be immediately cut down for firewood? Perhaps non-woody plants would have a better chance of survival. They require less water to thrive and are not desirable for firewood or building material.
