How could we get this scheme going in the Amazon, where this ‘lung’ of the Earth is quickly being attacked by the cancerous growth of illegal and legal land grabbers and tree clearers. The governments of the world should be assisting the Brazilian government to stop these ignorant scumbangs of further denigrating the Earth. Mind you not just in Brazil, there is the USA, Indonesia, the list goes on….Blessed be the planters of these trees.

Most temporate trees will not reach maturity. They will die from disease or predation. Once they decay, or are burned, they release the carbon they absorbed during their life.

I just watched an interesting video where Maathai says she is the mother of trees.

I made this Flowgram because I think architect William McDonough words, speak for the trees so brilliantly, I want to seed it far and wide, along with some pointers for tree-free paper choices.

McDonough said: “Imagine this design assignment: Design something that makes oxygen, sequesters carbon, fixes nitrogen, distills water, accrues solar energy to make fuel, makes complex sugars and food, creates microclimates, changes color with the seasons and self replicates. Why don’t we knock that down and write on it…?”
