Apparently the plant world communicates internationally. Sending data across (or under?) oceans.
Fresh from leaving politics, the most high-profile face of the campaign to leave the European Union has joined the advisory board of a Dutch carbon offset company aiming to plant three trillion trees by 2030.
Yet Farage said the attraction of the new role, as an adviser and spokesman with Amsterdam-listed carbon offset company Dutch Green Business (DGB), was about conservation and nature rather than just combating climate change - on which he says the science is still not completely settled.
"I think people will want to plant trees and increase biodiversity through DGB who are actually quite sceptical about climate change. Equally there will be others who are very concerned about it," the 57-year-old told Reuters.
"If their motivations are more about biodiversity than they are about climate change, so what?" he said.
DGB CEO Selwyn Duijvestijn said the very image that made Farage appear an unlikely choice would help to broaden the company's message to reach people beyond those traditionally interested in nature.
"50% of the world love the Greta Thunbergs of this world to bring them the message that nature is important, but then there is the other 50% ... the oil workers in Texas for instance ... and they would rather listen to Nigel," Duijvestijn said.
Yet some established figures in the carbon market expressed concern over the appointment.
