Climate change can be fixed by switching from cars to bikes, planting trees in our cities, tapping into energy efficiency’s potential and ditching coal and natural gas for solar and wind. Learn out more in this article.
I admit it is hard to keep your head cool when you read such news, and this despite having discovered the power of positive psychology. To a new study the world has lost ten percent of its wilderness in as little as 25 tiny years…
This article is a slightly re-written assignment I had to write for my Certficate in Sustainable Energy Solutions at Pinchot University. Hope you will like it !

For this new chapter of my life – studying for my MBA in Sustainable Business at Pinchot University – I am living next to a parking lot and I have been wondering if the owners could just plant a few trees to make it look better.
While some analysts thought that China would cut its emissions in 2040 it is already starting to actually take place, and in an impressive way as new analyses have shown.
Drones are all the rage these days. So why not use them to counter industrial scale deforestation with industrial scale reforestation ? (granted, we shouldn’t cut the trees in the first place…)
Many of us will offer gifts for Christmas or the new year. Here are some ideas for more sustainable alternatives to wrapping gifts with the traditional paper… MyZeroWaste offers five creative solutions.
Not only do we have to stop deforestation, we also have to plant trees, billions of them, in the cities, in the countryside… What if companies land not only a hand, but thousands of them ?
If countries and nations are failing short in acting on climate, big cities around the world are increasingly acting on these matters. This has been particularly apparent in the New York summit last month.
For the past few years I have grown to become a treehugger, willing to see more trees everywhere as they could clean our air from pollution and prevent climate change. Then comes Afforestt.
