India plans to plant two billion trees

Dear readers,

India plans to plant two billion trees, the effect it will have is incredible!

The countries of South Asia was the draft plan where 300,000 young people will be recruited to plant 2 billion trees on the edges of auto routes . In India, they identified two major problems: youth unemployment and poor air quality. Fortunately, they found an innovative solution that solves both problems simultaneously.

"The length of national highways in the country is 100 000 km.  I have asked officials to find a way to plant 2 billion trees throughout this length, which in turn will create jobs for the unemployed to one hand and on the other hand protect the environment, "said  the minister of maritime transport and rural development in India, Nitin Gadkari Jairam.

A  recent study, published in Chemical & Engineering News, found that the leaves can catch a considerable amount of polluting particles on the roads,  an improvement of 50%.

After the first data were collected, the scientists installed a line of trees 30 immature silver birch in front of every house for two semaines.La research, conducted in the UK, measured the level of air pollution which is found in homes in Lancaster using devices that measure and analyze the dust surface residue separated iron particles through magnetic techniques.

Homes with this barrier had up to 65% metal particle concentration and less, and 50% off any dust, compared to the control group.

They confirmed that the hairy leaf surface after the metallic particles trapped on a electron microscope study.

It seems that India is currently tracing a route that the world could follow to help reduce pollution in large cities of the world.
