I hope we can find a way to reverse the damage humans have done to our earth.

Well, the loonies on the right and the corporatists who only seek ever-expanding profit will seize upon any excuse to leave the status quo intact. But saying that plant life will offset factory pollutants is a lame and unsuccessful attempt to shift the blame off of their shoulders for environmental damage.
