From BBC comes this about Global Forest Watch (GFW) Global Forest Watch [must clock on the I Agree before it lets you on]


Quote:
The Earth lost 2.3m sq km of tree cover in 2000-12, because of logging, fire, disease or storms
But the planet also gained 800,000 sq km of new forest, meaning a net loss of 1.5m sq km
Brazil showed the best improvement of any country, cutting annual forest loss in half between 2003-04 and 2010-11
I hope we all know what this means. We need trees to create the air we breath. Are efforts to plant trees having any effect at all?
