they would charge you for air if they could, they brainwashed generations of people for more control over the price of said oil.

You could blame everything wrong with the world today on oil, but hey atleast we can see dinosaurs in museums now

befor you step outside and plant trees all over your garden to bless you and your neighbours with fresh air and lower air conditioning costs ask your neighbours wether they going to hate you cause your tree blocks the sun from their property and the foliage/seeds causes them trouble.
you'll maybe also want to carefully plan where and what to plant and check your local law cause there are countries that penalty charge you hefty fees for cutting a tree depending on the kind once it reached a certain circumference.
there might be other regulations like how close to the property border you are allowed to plant a tree...

speaking of reducing air conditioning costs, if a tree near a building helps cooling it in the summer, wouldn't it also block sun in the winter and therefore increase power consumption keep the building warm? wonder how much the benifit in the summer would even out in the winter in terms of cost saving and carbon footprint.

FAQ says they plant the trees all over the world on government owned and private properties. what would stop the owners of that property to cut and sell the trees once they have the right size for the market?

Let's be honest, ALL of the trees will get cut down. Every single one of em. It's not like they do nothing in the mean time though.

iono, to me the whole campaign draws a image of planting those trees for the sake of the environment, to filter/store cabon dioxide(?) till those trees eventually die a natural death.

if the plan is to cut them down in a few years to make furniture or fire wood out of them it imagine it would leave a bit of a bad taste in donators mouths.

The plan isn't to grow them TO be cut down, but they inevitably will be.

The way the world works. Trees (Everything) only exists to make money from. They just happen to make oxygen too.

there definitely have been campaigns in the past that ment to protect existing trees and maybe even combine reforesting + preserveing them.

they specifically mention in the FAQ that they only focus on planting, not preserving those trees. i don't know if it wouldn't be more beneficial for the environment to both plant and preserve them but that would cost more and inflated numbers like 20 million make better clickbait.

I mean duh. Clickbait/Shock and Awe etc.

It's kind of impossible to protect/preserve them. As soon as you look away they'll get chopped down. No one gives a *** about the law(s). They'll get a fine and not even bat an eyelash.

i get what you mean. its still a different premiss if the stuff you donated for is ought to be protected and there are repercussions if people get cought damaging it or if its owned by some government or private company that can do what ever they want.

Yet all the sheeple will run to donate for a cause they do 0 research on. Gotta give props to these youtubers for their hustle.

after people lose interest nobody will check if they even planed 1 million or if the money was siphoned off into some CEOs bank because nobody really cares.
Sounds like, well, every crowdfunded project ever.

Which is why I don't ever give any money to any crowdfunding "cause."

The money I give out is to established charities, both national and local. Because, you know, they do a whole hell of a lot more good than these little "projects."

Yo, if you don't want to give a dollar, updoot this and get a tree by proxy. (I don't know if he'll really donate 10 grand, but you get to feel good about it.)

Reading through this thread, I have to say, and I know I'm borrowing a cliche here, but this cynicism and defeatism is why we can't have nice things.

I have 3/4 of an acre in N central WA. I have lots of trees but can't plant another one. I have tried, the deer destroy them.

The only damage my existing trees.

Deer = giant rats with antlers. Also yummy but I am not a poacher.

3 trillion trees in the world. At the rate we cut them down it would take 600 years to be rid of all trees. I could careless about what happens in that time. I wont be here.

We cut down like 3 billion to 5 billion a year.

Wtf is 20 mil gonna do? Lol. By the time they're full grown keep us occupied for a weeks worth of work to cut them down? Lol

Just look back for a moment at the ice bucket challenge, that was a massive craze and everyone was in on it. I bet you can't even remember what the charity was and nobody has done a damn thing for it since that ended.
The Ice Bucket Challenge helped scienctists discover a new gene tied to ALS
