the story talks about beetles killing the trees.... So really this is a thread about a certain type of tree in a certain area of the United States being killed off by a certain type of beetle.
Hardly what the title suggests.

Hmm... maybe you should do more research using sources other than Lord Monkton and Friends of Science... Both of which use a combination of half truths, lies and psudo science, while being funded by oil companies.
To be honest i am tired of arguing with people who are agenda driven... The accusation that is normally aimed at us, so called, "eco-nazis" is that we are trying to control the word and impose taxes to make money. However, if you do you maths you will find that there is far more money to be made in the big oil companies than there is in green technologies. Oil companies are worth trillions and they have pumped us full of their propaganda for the last 30 odd years. It is them who have the most to lose and they will not go without a fight.
I don’t want to go any further into this because it will probably drag this thread off topic... People are so blind, they look out their windows and see that their lawn is still green and think "what’s the problem?" It’s sad that it is only when it is directly affecting them that they start to believe it.
We are losing our coral reefs at an alarming rate due to ocean acidification, Amphibians, Birds, Mammals are all in decline... Insects and Bees are disappearing, trees and plants are suffering... Yet people still chose to ignore it... "oh it’s all natural" "it’s all part of the cycle" Blah blah blah
And the band played on...

You should see it in parts of Washington state, and Oregon, and even in Idaho.
It's getting worse.
If you actually bothered to do the research you would see that trees grow faster now and that the whole earth is actually more green thanks to increase in co2.
The planet was also greener, had less deserts and such back when co2 was in thousands of ppm range and when planet was globally warmer/less cold.
Climate changes always. Some areas get colder, some areas get more drought, other areas get warmer or wetter. This is just natural changes that has happened all throughout earths history.
Also co2 has very little to do with global temperatures and it is in fact temperatures that increase before co2 in MOST cases.
Even when earth was warmer than now it wasnt hotter in regions that are hot today like equator. The difference was that there was hardly any difference between winter or summers and that it was also sub tropical and liveable even in arctic regions. Equator regions seems to have been even a bit less warm than today.
Wake up and do your own research instead of being a sheep that blindly trust mainstream media and politicians
