How can trees help in the fight against climate change? Dig into the efforts to rebuild damaged ecosystems and reduce carbon emissions.  Today humanity produces more than 1,400 tons of carbon every minute. To combat climate change, we need to reduce fossil fuel emissions, and draw down excess CO2 to restore the balance of greenhouse gases.  Like all plants, trees consume atmospheric carbon through photosynthesis. So what can trees do to help in this fight?  Jean-Fran├žois Bastin digs into the efforts to restore depleted ecosystems. Lesson by Jean-Fran├žois Bastin, directed by Lobster Studio.
