Trump Forest, the global forest to offset President Trump’s climate ignorance, has had more than a million trees pledged around the world. So far, people from more than 60 countries have contributed 1,000,029 trees.
The forest was launched just 11 months ago by three New Zealand-based climate change campaigners; American Jeff Willis, British Dr Dan Price, and French-New Zealander Adrien Taylor.
Since the start of the new year, President Trump has made moves to dismantle Obama-era restrictions placed on offshore oil drilling and recently stated that the polar ice caps are at record highs, contrary to all scientific evidence.
Last year, President Trump withdrew the United States from 2015’s Paris Agreement on climate change, leaving the U.S., Syria, and Nicaragua as the only three countries in the world not committed to the landmark international deal. Syria and Nicaragua have since signed on, leaving America alone.
The co-founders are pleased to have reached the 1,000,000 tree milestone but say there’s still so much more work to do.
