Has anyone noticed that ever since globalwarming has become the greenies big issue they have almost completely abandoned their other causes. Why don't we hear about the clear cutting of the forests and other green favorites. Obviously politics must be their chief concern otherwise they wouldn't have forgotten about their own issues.
Time to hug a logger.
...maybe they do but we only hear what the MSM wants us to hear.....like all bad news from Iraq etc....
Trees produce CO2, the most “noxious” greenhouse gas! So at least the greenhouse gasheads are being consistent!
“Earth First — log the other planets later.”
Here in Maryland they are pushing for a return of paper bags since trees are a “renewable” resource and those blue plastic bags are making Baltimore’s trees look like old blue haired ladies.
They have been trying to push for that here in Canada as well. Obviously they can’t get the political mileage out of saving the trees anymore so they now advocate cutting down more since the know paper bags will cost business more than plastic bags.
Um, no. Trees eat CO2 and release oxygen. Back to third grade science with you!
My understanding is that when trees are young and growing, they suck a lot of CO2 out of the atmosphere. when they are old, they emit more CO2 in the atmosphere. One of the best ways to get CO2 out of the atmosphere is to plant a lot of trees, cut them down before they get old, and plant some new trees immediately.
Which is, uh, what logging companies do. Don’t tell.
....ahem....trees produce oxygen from CO2 my friend...
Very good case for the logging industry - maybe the Oregon economy can be saved yet!
When they are DEAD they begin to emit CO2. It is called decay or rotting. :o) I guess that also constitutes old. While there is still photosenthysis, they are consuming CO2. I suppose there could be scenario when part of the tree is rotting while another part is still consuming CO2. Would that mean the tree is eating itself.
I think I have given myself a headache.
They deserted the little saplings for the BIG SAP. (converted to GORTHISM religion)
Especially since there are more trees on the planet now than any time in recorded history.
Should have pinged you to #13 as a reason why trees aren’t so important any more. (Note: I planted and am tending a field of many hundreds of trees, now a haven for deer and birds and cute little duckies, so not only am I NOT a hypocrite, but my carbon footprint is taken care of for several years!)
New growth forests use CO2, but OLD growth forests because of the rotting vegetaion below them consume O2 and RELEASE CO2. Does this help your headache. Thats when they should be cut!! LOL
How can they even talk of it any more? More of the U.S. is forested than it was in 1900.
“Back to third grade science with you!”
I was just noticing that too. No talk about the vanishing Amazon Rain Forest either. Hysteria du jour.
