Plant a Tree in Karachi - Help Climate Change

by Dawood Global Foundation - Educate a Girl Vetted since 2014 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit

Summary

The temperature in Karachi is changing one degree a year! There is growing global consensus that climate change is humankind's greatest threat in modern times and planting trees could help fight Climate change. We're beginning by planting 250 trees. Make the earth cooler for both people and planet. Trees are natural coolers of our planet: they absorb the excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help produce clouds; very needed in a desert like Karachi, Pakistan.

Challenge

There is growing global consensus that climate change is humankind's greatest threat in modern times and is likely to have profound consequences for socio-economic sectors such as health, food production, energy consumption and security and natural resource management. The harmful impacts of this global warming effect are already manifesting themselves around the world in the form of extreme weather events like storms, tornadoes, floods and droughts.

Solution

Whether you plant trees around your home and property, in your community, or in our national forests, they help fight climate change. Through the natural process of photosynthesis, trees absorb CO2 and other pollutant particulates, then store the carbon and emit pure oxygen

Long-Term Impact

As we already know that Climate change is a great threat, we want to work towards solving this problem as much as we could and as planting trees is one of the solution for climate change, we want to take responsibility.
