Three of the world’s greatest environmental problems are increasingly being met and abated in residential neighborhoods across Massachusetts. The dastardly trio are nutrient pollution causing harmful algal blooms (ocean dead zones), degradation and loss of natural places (habitat loss), and climate change (global warming). Imagine a car with a flat tire, busted battery and no spark plugs. Fixing the more obvious one or two issues will not get us very far down the road. The solution involves fixing all three at once.
Fortunately, there are cost-efficient nature-based solutions as plants do not charge for the work of drawing in water and carbon dioxide, using sunlight energy, and photosynthesizing carbohydrates that become plant fiber and black carbon.
