Future way of Reforestation & Climate change: A Drone which can plant 100k trees in a hour
While the traditional uses of drones are typically commercial or recreational, one UK-based company is using them to help the environment. BioCarbon Engineering has teamed up with drone manufacturer Parrot to create a system for autonomously planting trees to fight deforestation.According to the World Economic Forum, the world cuts down roughly 15 billion trees but only plants 9 billion. This is in part because replanting manually is very slow and expensive. The drone-based system on the other hand is able to plant trees ten times faster than humans, for 85% less money, and in places humans can't reach.

Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, has called on Germans to think out of the box to cope with the challenges arising from global warming."To do this, we need more than ever the courage to think in a new way, the strength to leave familiar paths, the willingness to try new things, and the determination to act faster, convinced that the unusual can succeed - and must succeed if the generation of today's young people and their descendants should still be able to live well on this Earth," Merkel said.That is also a priority of the European Union's new executive Commission. Germany will hold the EU's rotating presidency in the second half of 2020.https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/all-man-made-merkel-vows-to-
