G7 Climate Change Features EcoPlanet Bamboo
15th June 2015
Pre the industrial revolution, much of the world’s development can be traced to the use of wood and extraction of timber from forests that took thousands of years to grow. Exploration and discovery, colonization, and subsequently trade and commerce were fueled by access to a timber resource. Indeed it was the impending shortage of timber to fuel Britain’s fleet that first led to the widespread use of coal, and the subsequent industrialization that overtook the world. History has shown that a lack of supply forces change, which in turn spurs innovation. And now, once again, forced by decades of ravaging our natural forests and the widespread and potentially catastrophic effects of their disappearance, a shift as disruptive as the industrial revolution is not only required, but critical.
EcoPlanet Bamboo was featured in the official publication of the G7 Climate Change meetings that took place on June 7-8 2015 in Germany.
