Focus on lost ecosystems of urban development . (Climate Colab ,I need Global option for my impact , regions option is not enough)
To build a building on an area which grow grass , bush , tree we have to destroy the plants . After finishing , we never replant the same kind of these destroyed plants AT OTHERS PLACES . In reality , the environmental standard , LEED current version of all the countries on the world never force us to grow these plants again at others places . We can get LEED certificate of Green Buildings , ISO 14000 - Environmental Management certificate , industry certificate , agriculture certificate , or meet US EPA environmental standards even we never replant destroyed plants . Our environmental standards were wrong , only focus on air , water , energy & forget destroyed plants , no nature conservation , no sustainability ( but in their minds , they misunderstand that they're protecting environment ) . Our policies about replant destroyed plants or reforestation , the accuracy can’t reach to each house , bridge , police station ,………. or positions of constructions have LEED , ISO 14000 certificate ,…… , NO NATURES CONSERVATION , no sustainability . If we solve this issue globally by planting destroyed plants , may be we can solve Climate Change , pls sign to stop this issue . How bad the wrong environmental standards damage our countries :
When CO2 sequestration > CO2 emission at the Earth , after finishing all CO2 of Earth , it begin to decrease CO2 of atmosphere =>solve climate change . CO2 sequestration ability of lost ecosystems here are very important .Destroyed plants are our environment . We create environmental laws , green standards like ISO 14000 , LEED of Green Building to protect environment . If environmental laws , green standards never force us to replant destroyed plants so when people have these certificate , they misunderstand about protecting environment
What actions do you propose?
THIS IS THE FINAL TIME I TRY WITH MIT CLIMATE COLAB CONTESTS , BECAUSE NONE OF THE JUDGES REALLY FOCUS ON THIS GLOBAL HUGE ISSUE . 80 JUDGES OF 2014 MIT 18 CONTESTS , AND 10 JUDGES OF 2015 MIT , NO ONE INTEND TO DO SOMETHING . THE WORLD NEED TO REALIZE THEIR GREEN , ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS WERE WRONG . THE WORLD NEED TO REALIZE THIS ISSUE , NOT ME , I TRIED ALL THE WAY I CAN , IT'S ENOUGH SORROW , TIRED .
The world need to replanting destroyed plants and focus on CO2 sequestration ability of new plants .
You can read ( downloading is better to view online ) the impact of globally replanting plants here :
Using native plants or not belong 2 CO2 sequestration of native plants
Ex : We have to replant destroyed plants of a country . This countries have 1 million positions of destroyed plants . We plant plants at others places of 1 million position . If CO2 sequestration of replanted plants IN 18 YEARS - from young plants to mature plants = or bigger ( the best ) than CO2 sequestration in 18 years of destroyed plants - most of destroyed plants are mature plants + ( add with ) CO2 emission of buildings + ( add with ) CO2 emission of cars ( if 1 house have 1 cars ), so we can confirm the replanting process is successful . We can check the list with 1 millions V character . If CO2 sequestration of plants bigger than CO2 emission of this country , after absorb all CO2 emission of this country , plants of this country begin 2 absorb CO2 of atmosphere => decrease CO2 of atmosphere . Plants also soak water too => decrease sea level too
If CO2 sequestration of replanted plants IN 18 YEARS - from young plants to mature plants < than CO2 sequestration in 18 years of destroyed plants - most of destroyed plants are mature , native plants + ( add with ) CO2 emission of buildings + ( add with ) CO2 emission of cars ( if 1 house have 1 cars ) , so the replanting destroyed plants is a failure . In some thousand years build human kind society , they have never focus this issue . We can check the list with 1 millions X character
1 mature tree on average can absorb 45 lbs CO2 * 18 years = 810 lbs CO2
1 young tree from young to mature can absorb : 1 year absorb 2.5 lbs Co2 , 2 year absorb 5 lbs Co2 , 3 year absorb 7.5 lbs Co2 , 4 year absorb 10 lbs Co2 , 5 year absorb 12.5 lbs Co2 , 6 year absorb 15 lbs Co2 , 7 year absorb 17.5 lbs Co2 , 8 year absorb 20 lbs Co2 , 9 year absorb 22.5 lbs Co2 , 10 year absorb 25 lbs Co2 , 11 year absorb 27.5 lbs Co2 , 12 year absorb 30 lbs Co2 , 13 year absorb 32.5 lbs Co2 , 14 year absorb 35 lbs Co2 , 14 year absorb 37.5 lbs Co2 , 15 year absorb 40 lbs Co2 , 16 year absorb 42.5 lbs Co2 , 17 year absorb 45 lbs Co2 => in 18 year 1 tree absorb : 2.5 + 5 +7.5 + 10 + 12.5 + 15 + 17.5 + 20 + 22.5 +25 +27.5 + 30 + 32.5 + 35 + 37.5 + 40 + 42.5 + 45 = 435 lbs .
If we exploit 1 tree than replant 1 tree , we decrease Co2 sequestration of our country because our mind only replant forest area = exploited forest area , and never archive this thing .
We need a serious conversation about which plant can we choose , if you want native plants , I want my CO2 sequestration standards because in my opinion , we can have both .
Read this for all information :
Who will take these actions?
Where will these actions be taken?
How much will emissions be reduced or sequestered vs. business as usual levels?
What are other key benefits?
May be we can solve climate change if we replant destroyed plants globally .
What are the proposal’s costs?

That's a failure , no nature conservation & sustainability , all forget to replant destroyed plants of buildings , roads , .....but still meet environmental standards of environmental agencies , LEED , ISO 14000 , Global GAP , ......certificate

Dear Judges :
2014 I joined all MIT Climate Colab contests just for warning people about this issue ,environmental standards , environmental certificates were wrong , only focus on air , water , energy & forget destroyed plants , sadly I lost 18 contests of Climate Colab ( include Green Building & Building contests ) . Can judges help me , talk , write about this issue on your website or have a conversation with environmental agencies , Green Building Council , ISO organization , ....... They need to realize this issue . I work with this issue in 3 or 4 years but couldn't solve it because I’m alone . I need a help . Our policies about replant destroyed plants or reforestation , the accuracy can’t reach to each house , bridge , police station ,or positions of constructions have LEED , ISO 14000 certificate , NO NATURES CONSERVATION but meet environmental standards . I’m tired , sad & cried . Even I have a petition , but only have some signatures . Petitions can have hundreds thousand signatures which can change something because TV channel , newspaper ,….. write about it so people know it & SIGN , but no one support me even I wrote to newspapers & told them this issue . Many newspaper have articles about green building , I wrote to them about this issue but no one reply me . Do you feel sad when next year I have to come back and join the contests again just for warning people , because no one help, write about it . I DON’T WANT TO WIN , I ONLY WANT TO WARN PEOPLE ,SOMETHING , at least pls help me write about how wrong Green Building & ISO 14000 are . Now is 2015 & I wonder until I die , can I find a scientist help me write about this issue , I don't know . THANK YOU
