    The Climate Change Secret In The Great Trees

    How ancient sequoias may hold a key to reversing climate change; The massive, ancient trees were once thought to be vulnerable to drought and fire. But now, scientists are attempting to clone and replant them all over the world to absorb greenhouse gasses

    Simone McCarthy, July 20, 2016 (Christian Science Monitor)

    “Planting more trees to absorb carbon is one of the many ways that humans are working to combat climate change across the world…[M]eticulously collecting samples from ancient sequoia trees to then clone them in a lab and replant them throughout the world…[is the climate change “solution”] being undertaken by the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive…[T]hey put particular hope in the sequoia, native only to the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. The group says that the genetics of these trees, which grow to be some 300 feet tall and 3,000 years old, may make them particularly suited to withstand and push back against climate change…The nonprofit group takes the extra step of cloning, instead of just planting new trees, in order to preserve existing trees' genetic make-up and propagate the genes that have produced success…[R]esearch and observation have shown the sequoia to be resilient in the face of drought…” click here for more
