Australian businesses will need to pay an estimated $65 billion to purchase international Carbon Credits. This cost will inevitably be passed on to consumers in increased prices for goods and services.
Scientists know that actively growing vegetation will absorb CO2, nitrogen and water vapour from the atmosphere and release O2 as a by-product. Using plants to manage water could turn this $65 billion deficit into $180 billion in credits to our economy and our environment over 3 years. This information can be demonstrated but not modelled on a computer.
