PLANTS CAN SAVE OUR PLANET

Climate change is the greatest environmental threat humanity has ever faced. It is caused by the built-up of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels and destruction of areas that store massive amounts of carbon like the world’s rainforests. In recent years, global warming has been the subject of a great deal of political controversy.

Could plants help to slow the march of global warming?

Yes! It’s possible.

Biodiversity influences climate at local, regional and global levels, yet most climate models do not take biodiversity into consideration because its variables and effects are too diverse and complex to compute. Two recent studies, however, demonstrate the importance of being able to consider the response of vegetation to elevated levels of carbon dioxide in climate models as we try to predict our climate future.

The science of soil-less gardening is called hydroponics. It basically involves growing healthy plants without the use of a traditional soil medium and by using a nutrient like a mineral rich water solution instead. A plant just needs selected nutrients, some water, and sunlight to grow. Not only do plants grow without soil, they often grow a lot better with their roots in water instead.
