The Christmas tree and climate change

I’ve posted this a couple of times but it’s just as relevant today. How Christmas is celebrated has to be reevaluated in relation to our species connection and current abuse of nature.

January 2021

I have written about this before but since most people will have forgotten all about the Christmas trees they bought and disposed of without much thought here’s a timely reminder. The tree in the photograph and countless others are now releasing CO2 into the atmosphere adding to the already very high levels not seen since before the last series of ice ages began 2.58 million years ago. That’s natural right? Well no, if the trees hadn’t been cut down they would still have been soaking up CO2 rather than releasing it. Apart from that these trees are grown as monocultures. They have replaced natural ecosystems displacing the plants and all sorts of creatures when they were planted. When they were cut down all the wildlife that had re-established itself was again disturbed and in some cases driven off. Then there are all the pesticides that were used and you brought into your home. They are not good for you or wildlife. So make a note for yourself for December 2021 to find a more environmentally way of celebrating Christmas. If you have time try to get your local authority to do the same too.
