„Wir brauchen eine Billion Bäume!“ – Ein Interview mit dem ETH-Forscher Dr. Colin Averill - NIKIN EU

“We need a trillion trees!” – An interview with ETH researcher Dr. Colin Averill

Global reforestation is the most effective measure against climate change. The world needs a trillion new trees to absorb two-thirds of the CO2 emissions caused by humans. This is the conclusion reached by a study by ETH Zurich. We met with Dr. Colin Averill, who was involved in the study.

Global reforestation is the most effective measure against climate change. The world needs one trillion new trees to absorb two-thirds of the CO2 emissions caused by humans. This is the conclusion reached by a study by ETH Zurich. We met with Dr. Colin Averill, who was involved in the study.

Colin Averill mit dem NIKIN-Team

The NIKIN team met with Dr. Colin Averill, Senior Scientist in the Crowther Lab at ETH Zurich, chats.
NIKIN plants one tree for every product sold - and there is an important reason for this: trees are not only home to many animals, but they also absorb CO2. A study by ETH has now shown how important trees are for the environment. That's why we talked to someone who needs to know exactly. Dr. Colin Averill worked on the study and answered our most burning questions. We will publish his answers here at irregular intervals.

How many trees does it take to stop climate change?


In the first part we asked him the most important question: How many trees do we need? His answer: a trillion. You can see how many trees are currently on earth in the video.
