Shrubs Against Climate Change – this simple plant may be the key to revitalizing an area

We talk about planting trees a lot to help in the climate crisis but those aren’t the only green life that can help. In South Africa there’s an unlikely hero in the fight against climate change. The spekboom, a type of succulent shrub that shows promise in turning things around for the area.

This shrub can actually grow pretty tall. In ten years it can be twice the size of an average man if allowed to grow undisturbed. A whole field of them can sequester a ton of carbon and their presence will help stimulate rain fall and lower temperatures in the area. Bonus, they’re local and do well in the area.

The hope is that these shrubs will help mitigate the changes in the climate as other man made issues and revitalize the landscape. This plant has many benefits and using a similar tactic in other areas (though not the same plant) may also see strong turn around.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
