    Fire burn's because there is Oxygen in the atmosphere. To make more oxygen is to plant more trees. According to NASA the world has been greening for 35 years when their research began. For 4 Decades, China has been taking advantage of the Warming to reforest the Loess Plateau. According Dr. Patrick Moore the climate is still in a little Ice age. A 1,000 years ago the climate was warmer & when Eric the Red landed there greener pastures to farm.

    Most deforested areas (75 percent) have been converted for human use (farm, villages, towns, cities, stadiums, golf course..). Degraded areas that's become a baron desert is possible to terraform again. China has done it in the Loess Plateau for 4 decades by preventing the sand from shifting with the wind using checkered straw (sticks or grass straws) buried halfway and planting saplings with barriers that retains water. Significant success at the Loess Plateau dub the great green wall to hold back the growing desert in inner-Mongolia inspired Africa to start with their own Great Green wall to hold back the Sahara desert's expansion a couple of years ago.

    The U.S. & Mexico needs a 5 - 10 mile wide Great Green wall on both side of the border. The border towns & homes at the vicinity of the border wall needs to be relocated 3-5 miles away from the border on both side. Let the Great Green Wall of America be a wild life sanctuary for indigenous Wildlife such as the Ocelot, Bobcat, Jaguar, Mexican Crocodiles, Buffalos, Foghorns, Elk, California Grizzly & Mexican Brown Bear.

    Urban & Suburban cities needs lungs by planting pocket forest & build vertical forest. There should be a 7 acre forest park with an acre or 3 acre wide farmlands surrounding it at every 10 miles radius at 4 points of the Compass in urban & sub-urban cities.

    Drowning in plastics & population overload is a much greater treat than CO2 that helps green the planet. Mankind will be drowning in plastics (upholstery, utensils, auto parts, aircraft parts, pipes, cushions, insulations, cups, plates, crates, syringes, medicine bottles, packaging, trash bags...), batteries, electronics, toxic heavy metals, drugs, chemicals... because of population overload. The more people there are the more consumption of all resources, the more manufacturing, the more waste, the more pollution of all kinds, the more vulnerable or endangered nature, fauna & flora are from extinction. Before the Industrial Revolution Mankind was less than half a Billion in population throughout the world, now Mankind is 7.5 Billion & growing ever so fast since the 1930s as food preservation (canning/refrigeration), automated transportation (vehicles of all types: Land, Rail, Air, & Sea), electronics, plastic & breakthroughs in modern medicines became abundant & common.

    I am old. I'll probably be dead in 10 years so I don't care. If you are going to live more than 10 years then you should be concerned and do something about it. Just don't expect me to care.
