Trees can’t talk to us which is a shame because they could probably tell us a lot about our changing world. After all, they’ve been around for a very, very long time. Somebody else thought about that too and thanks to technology, gave one tree a way to “talk” to us, no Lorax needed. A northern red oak has been outfitted with sensors and its observations are tweeted.

That being said, there’s still room for radical solutions like dumping sulfate particles into the stratosphere, called stratospheric aerosol injection, to protect us from the sun. Science fiction sounding? Yes but it’s a real suggestion.
