Dying Trees – The Beginning Of The End

Dying Trees The BeginningEven if we don’t want to admit it, nature is dying. And it’s a shame. Humanity is no longer paying attention to the environment.

The Trees Are Dying

We already know about major environment disasters like Fukushima’s radioactive leak, or the fires that have destroyed Indonesia.

But now, our dying planet is facing yet another problem. And it involves one of the most important elements of our planet. The trees.

A study published last year has shown us, after a long research, how many total trees our planet gives a home to.

The information can come as a shock.

“A new study published in Nature estimates the planet has 3.04 trillion trees. The research says 15.3 billion trees are chopped down every year. It also estimates that 46% of the world’s trees have been cleared over the past 12,000 years.”

Today, many trees are dying all over the world. Researchers think they could be hundreds of millions, or even more.

In particular, California is facing one of the biggest crisis regarding trees. As declared:

“The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that the U.S. Forest Service has identified an additional 36 million dead trees across California since its last aerial survey in May 2016. This brings the total number of dead trees since 2010 to over 102 million on 7.7 million acres of California’s drought stricken forests. In 2016 alone, 62 million trees have died, representing more than a 100 percent increase in dead trees across the state from 2015. Millions of additional trees are weakened and expected to die in the coming months and years.”

The New York Times has also reported this. They stated, as we can see below, that the trees were already dead by the time the fire reached them.

The Rest of The World.

But this is not limited to California. Hawaii, for example, is facing a similar issue. A disease, now called ohi’a disease, hit the ohi’a trees killing most of them. Even as we speak, scientists still haven’t found a cure for it.

Do not believe that you are safe. As The Guardian reports:

“The plight of the ohi’a is not unique – it’s part of a quiet crisis playing out in forests across America. Drought, disease, insects and wildfire are chewing up tens of millions of trees at an incredible pace, much of it driven by climate change.”

The reason for all this is still unknown. Many, however, speculate that the continuously growing pollution could be at the base of the dying trees issue.

They believe it is causing the trees to be weak and vulnerable to all the factors that are killing them.

In the meantime, some have a different theory. They blame climate engineering.

“In California and in other parts of the world, many are making the connection between climate engineering these tree die-offs. Also known as geoengineering, this is the modification of the earth’s atmosphere with the supplementation of compounds and chemicals, ostensibly as a means of favorably influencing the climate.”

The future of the planet’s wildlife is in danger, now that the trees, their homes, are dying.

Is There Still Hope?

An article in the “Issues in Ecology” magazine titled “Setting Limits – Using Air Pollution Thresholds to Protect and Restore U.S. Ecosystems” had this to say:

“Natural ecosystems have been altered in various ways by nitrogen, sulfur, and mercury deposited in rain, snow, or as gases and particles in the atmosphere. Through decades of scientific research, scientists have documented how local, regional, and global sources of air pollution can produce profound changes in ecosystems. These changes include acidification of soils and surface waters, harmful algal blooms and low oxygen conditions in estuaries, reduced diversity of native plants, high levels of mercury in fish and other wildlife, and decreased tolerance to other stresses, such as pests, disease, and climate change.”

Trees play a vital role in our planet’s life. And they also sustain our life as well. They produce most of the oxygen we breathe and help avoid earthquakes and landslides. But yet, nobody is paying attention to them.

We are so distracted by political drama and other superficial problems, that we can’t even notice the real problems we have. Our species could face extinction if we do not take action soon.

We are getting closer to our end. Will we realize this before it’s too late?
