To plant trees in key locations to act as viable source of nutrients and acting to stop the effects of sea rise.
I understand temperatures have been rising and we have linked this to us producing more greenhouse gasses. But also we have been in the process of major deforestation for the last century as well.1) Trees hold the earth together, meaning that sediment does not flow into rivers as much, this excess sediment has been linked to flooding areas in major rivers. 2) Trees offer cover to the ground, causing less of the ground to be heated, meaning that the earth does not get so warm, causing less convectional rainfall and less extreme weather systems. 3) trees store water, with the amount of trees we have chopped down this could be linked to the more water in the oceans, we have lost a major water store. Also trees act as interception devices meaning less water gets into the river as quickly, causing less flooding. 4) Of course, the main reason think trees are cool is that they are carbon sinks, the reason we are getting more greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere is because they are not getting stored? 5) we are killing of many animals by taking away their habitat, these too take in nutrients and energy, so this excess energy is going into making the world even more unbalanced ecosystem. these are just a few examples of why trees are good.
But i am thinking, if we planted trees in strategic locations then we would not need to rely on energy for cooling, or worry about flooding and excess carbon dioxide amounts. After all, these are natural and adding to the natural world, as the new proposed carbon sink in the EU is a concrete mass, which will probably take a few years to take in the carbon it put out in the manufacturing process
