Unser Anteil am Klimawandel: Wie viel CO² produzieren wir jährlich?

‚At Edible Landscapes London we do informal training on volunteer days, and formal training like Creating a Forest Garden, which is a new accredited course. It’s all to do with gardening with low maintenance, local food growing that makes the best use of gardening spaces. And it leads to all year round productivity as well not relying on a monoculture crop which leaves the land unproductive for the rest of the year. I have had to make a choice between global campaigning kind of stuff and localised tangible projects. I chose the latter. So at the moment I tend to have the higher level political stuff on my radar… so I will sign a petition, you know, to encourage a council to go down a divestment path and so on, but I won’t be actively campaigning in those areas just because I’m a mum, and I can’t do it all. My hunch about where we’re at, what’s going on in the atmosphere, is that its highly probable that we’ve gone past the point of no return. So what I’ve got to give is just planting more trees. Whatever happens, more greenery is always going to be a good thing. It may be that things turn out ok in which case its still good to have more trees. There’s no way that what I’m doing can do any harm. I simply want to focus on that. You know, just keep on going.’
