“All Americans want a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment.

“We’ve made great progress in America. If you look between 2016 and 2017, our CO2 emissions reduced by 42 million tons — the largest cut of any nation… equal to the reductions of the next eight countries combined.

“We know what trees will do. [They’re] like our own lungs cleaning the environment… This is a way to make [earth] healthier.

“A trillion trees [are] equal to two-thirds of all the man-made carbon since the industrial revolution until today, [and] everyone can participate.

“But it’s not just about planting trees. It’s also the enhancement of more being built with wood, holding that carbon and keeping us safer.

“Think about what America can do with the rest of the world, because this is a global problem [and] we all can work toward making our environment healthier and cleaner.”
