There is a trinity attached to climate change. It operates all over planet Earth, in the water, on the land, and in the atmosphere. The triad is simplicity itself and is composed of carbon dioxide, oxygen, and biodiversity.

Once upon a time, carbon dioxide ruled the roost. That was around 500 million years ago. The planet was toxic and did not entertain life. Slowly, very slowly, a unique pattern language emerged called DNA. This double spiral gave birth to plants and man.

The plants bestowed oxygen and life began. Trees and forests became champions at this. One large tree holds a soccer field of working leaves, producing around five tons of oxygen per year. We have cut too many trees down. We have destroyed the biodiversity of our planet’s forests. We are all living creatures looking at the calamity of climate change. The answers are simple, three words: carbon dioxide, oxygen, and biodiversity. Let’s begin, let’s take the first footsteps to cure this.


Botanist, medical biochemist, and author DIANA BERESFORD-KROEGER possess a unique combination of Western scientific training and an understanding of the knowledge and methods of a wide variety of traditional and alternative sources. Her books include The Sweetness of a Simple Life, The Global Forest, Arboretum Borealis: A Lifeline of the Planet, Arboretum America: A Philosophy of the Forest, and A Garden for Life. A feature documentary about her work, the Canadian Screen Awards-nominated Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees, appeared in 2017. In 2019, the Board of Governors and Senate of Carleton University recognized Dr. Beresford-Kroeger’s efforts towards preserving the earth’s climate and forests by conferring upon her the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa. Her latest book is To Speak for the Trees: My Life’s Journey From Ancient Celtic Wisdom To a Healing Vision of the Forest.
