GOP Rep. Bruce Westerman of Arkansas is reintroducing a revamped version of his “Trillion Trees Act” that would incentivize the planting of trees to absorb carbon.

Westerman, the only licensed forester in Congress, touts planting trees as the most “pragmatic, proactive approach” to removing planet-warming carbon from the atmosphere.

“It’s large-scale, it’s cost-effective, and there are a lot of positive environmental benefits of having healthy forests,” Westerman, the top Republican on the Natural Resources Committee, told the Washington Examiner in an exclusive interview ahead of the bill’s release. More info click here.
