My vision is for Hamilton to be the most family friendly city in NZ - for all stages of life.
Scientists say the easiest and most cost-effective way to fight climate change is to plant lots of trees - one trillion of them.
And how do you go about planting 1 trillion trees? And where should they be planted? Although tree-planting is a simple solution it isn’t simply a matter of planting trees helter-skelter
NZ has plenty of land to plant trees. Researchers at Yale University have found that adding 1.2 Trillion trees would reverse 10 years’ worth of harmful emissions. Over the decades those new trees would absorb billions of tons of carbon from the atmosphere.
As guests on this planet, we all need to do our bit to fight climate change.
I want to develop a 3-year programme for Hamilton to plant a monumental three hundred thousand trees, it will be a huge effort but will be achievable with the right planning and support from the community.
