Today’s Solutions: April 21, 2024

Lately, planting more trees has become one of the top environmental priorities for countries eager to slow down the pace of climate change. The latest nation to arm itself with greenery in the fight against global warming is Ireland.

The country’s government has recently announced it will plant 22 million trees every year over the next two decades as part of a plan to cut its carbon emissions. The climate action plan looks to allocate 8,000 hectares of land for new forestry every year. A key part of the plan will be to persuade farmers to designate some of their holdings for tree-planting in the future. To do that, government-organized town-hall-style meetings are being held throughout the country to encourage communities to support the targets.

Also proposed under the plan, is a massive increase in electric vehicles (EVs), up by an average of 100,000 annually over the next decade, to reach almost one million EVs by 2030.
