Plants and Climate Change
SIL Maryann Enright brought me the article below on her last visit.
I do hope you read it–especially as this week Trump announced he is withdrawing the USA from the Paris Accords and is presently refusing to clarify whether or not he still believes climate change is a “hoax.”
Plants hold the keys to some really important information about how Earth functions–or should function if we would stop destroying that which we do not yet understand.
I started reading about the incredible sophistication of plants with herbalist Stephen Buhner’s books. I was blown away by what I was reading–how smart plants are, how they use chemicals to communicate, how they manage their environments, and so on. There is an entry from 2013 here on the blog about Stephen Buhner’s information/books. You can use the search button on the right sidebar to get to it if the link below does not work. This work is scientific, of the Nobel Prize winning kind.
Meanwhile, take a look at Lynda V. Mapes article from The Boston Globe Magazine (April 30, 2017). She recounts an interesting study, made among other ongoing interesting studies.
