Thinking of planting some trees to offset your CO2 emissions?

While planting trees is usually a great idea, it may not have much impact on the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, according to this article from SciDevNet.

The bottom line is, we "cannot rely on nature to clean up"!

Is there any connection to former President, Ronald Reagan's statement that trees are the cause of acid rain? Any truth to the rumor that 'w' was his environmental apprentice?

Yes, I'm sure that 'dubya' thinks that it's the trees that are causing the global warming. Never trust a plant that would stand in the way of oil profits! They are probably part of the 'axis of evil' too!
