PBS Digital Show “Far Out” Features Half-Earth Project

The PBS Digital Show “Far Out” recently featured the writings of E.O. Wilson, the Half-Earth Project, and the Places for a Half-Earth Future map in a segment, “Why Tree Planting Campaigns Don’t Work.”

According to PBS:

In 2019, a Turkey tree planting campaign set a world record. Three months later, 90% of those saplings were dead. Planting trees to replace old-growth forests is a common solution, but it typically does not solve the problem. With deforestation causing climate-related disasters, it’s time to take a hard look at reforestation and what we can do to save our forests.

Watch the video segment below — the references to the Half-Earth Project begin at the 5:23 mark.
