Pro

it may take more trees, or it may take less.
the important factor is that we take the initiative and start planting as much trees how ever much it costs to do so!

Con

The government would be spending a lot of tax money to do it. Therefore they should not do it and spend money on serious issues.

carbon emission is a pretty serious issue, and yes the US would spend tax money on it but planting trees is not very expensive. the thing is only a few people are dong it. I was thinking more of an international coalition to start reforesting parts of the world that are in need of it. also we could be planting a huge amount of forests in the united states which could greatly help the US by replenishing much needed nutrients into our soil and can be a future industry that will bring the US a lot of money.
