Deforestation is such a huge problem on our planet, and it’s all for profit. It’s not needed at all, and if the Earth and its wellbeing were our top priorities, as they should be, it wouldn’t really be happening. That being said, human beings have tremendous potential to restore the Earth, and as the masses become more and more conscious about Earth and the environment, the closer we get to restoration.
A great example comes from Scotland, where the government announced that in 2018, they flew past their national tree planting goals by planting over 22 million trees. How incredible is that? This equates to approximately 43 square miles (11,200 hectares) of new forestry in 2018 alone.
Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing said: “This is fantastic news that we’ve smashed the targets. It is testament to the Scottish Government making forestry a priority and investing and helping growing the industry.” He also said that “In Scotland alone, around 9.5 million tonnes of CO2 each year are removed from the atmosphere by our forests – this is a clear example of why an increase in tree planting is so important in the fight against climate change.”
Planting trees is great, and it’s extremely necessary in order to restore our planet, clean our air, and help regulate multiple greenhouse gases. It’s a huge necessity for so many reasons.
We here at Collective Evolution have always been huge advocates of cleaning up our water ways, the restoration of forests, clean energy, and much more. Obviously, we still have a long way to go. When it comes to the CO2 issue in particular, you can read more regarding our thoughts about that here.
This news from Scotland also comes off the heels of a recent data release from NASA, as they happily reported that the Earth is greener, with more trees than 20 years ago thanks to efforts from China and India.
Mainstream media sources portray a constant state of worry, fear, anxiety and hysteria on several different issues. When it comes to mainstream media, a lot of information is unfortunately false, made up and used to serve the agenda of various financial elite groups. We now know this for a fact, as multiple documents have surfaced outlining the close connections between mainstream media and government/intelligence agencies. We also have operation Mockingbird, a CIA program that used mainstream media to manipulate the perception of the masses on certain issues, like geopolitics for example. We’ve also had multiple award winning mainstream media journalists come out and state multiple times that mainstream media is nothing but a mouth piece for the government, the financial elite and various corporations.
It’s unfortunate, but it’s the truth.
For years, we’ve been fed nothing but propaganda and fear, our minds have been programmed and manipulated, and we rarely see any good news stories. Is our planet really as bad as it’s been presented to us? Sure, there are several issues that we need to take care of. We need to heal the planet and fix many things, but at the same time, we must remember that there are still a lot of good things happening, and there are good initiatives and efforts to be proud of.
Our world is a beautiful place, and there’s just as much turmoil as there is ‘good’ stuff, perhaps we just don’t know it because we are never shown it. All we are presented with is chaos, and that chaos is frequently used to justify certain actions by the global elite, which always seems to impose more restrictions on us and take more of our rights away.
