Where's the conspiracy angle on this? Well...
If the entire membership of ATS just plants one tree, we would plant over 6,000 additional trees.
If we started a large-scale campaign to plant trees everywhere we could, think how many trees we could plant then! If this AGW is true, surely the
governments and green campaigners would have to get behind it?
...so why aren't they already suggesting it?
Instead there are calls for planting plastic trees in the Desert to absorb CO2 at a cost of £300 Billion per YEAR!
How many real trees could you plant for that (that wouldn't involve a gross waste of tax payers money)? What environmental impact would these plastic
trees have? The scale would suggest they would have a significant impact (just think what impact a city has on local weather variations).
If we planted one additional tree for every person in the country, that would be 300+ million for the US, 60+ million for the UK etc..
Surely this is a far better idea?
