Nature can do the heavy lifting of the climate work while at the same time producing food, cleaning the air we breathe, biofiltering the water we drink and other ecosystem services that we usually take for granted and frequently want to substitute with human tech.

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) that are generated by our actions.
The average carbon footprint for a person in the United States is 16 tons, one of the highest rates in the world. Globally, the average is closer to 4 tons.
