Melia dubia to curb global warming
Melia dubia is one of the most favoured and fast growing soft woods used for industrial and commercial purposes. Although renewable energy is currently adopted substantially to curb CO2 emissions, we are totally forgetting the amount of forest areas destroyed everyday for agricultural expansion. Melia dubia (Malabar neem or Malabar vepa) should be the go to solution to be panted in our unused farm lands. This will not only reduce the carbon footprint of the planet, but also help the farmers financially through cross plantation techniques.
Biofuels are the best substitute for fossil fuels; but for them to gain market share, biomass has to be grown. So many countries are investing so much in renewable energy, but none is giving attention to growing more wood. If Indian officials were not so busy attending international conferences, they would go and look at the Melia dubia plantation of Energy Plantation Projects all across India. Growing more biomass to replace fossil fuels is the solution to global warming; India should show the way.
