I was told that bamboo can be grown rapidly and easily.Would it be a good idea to grow bamboo in many available areas to save the planet?

I am worried about global warming and I want to know if growing bamboo can really help protect the enviropnment.I believe it can also help the economy if it is done seriously.

  • Jan 23 2013: If you are interested in "saving" the planet, it would be prudent to outline the greatest threat. Currently that is defined as species extinction. However if you are interested in replanting Madagascar, I suggest you look into hemp. It absorbs more co2 than any other plant, and in your climate it grows year-round. It also has far more applications than bamboo. Good luck!
