Are you using wood right? Did you know that it's actually okay to chop woods - but not to burn it because of the CO2 pollution? This is a new video that tells you about it:

Might interest folks here to know that New England was largely deforested in the 1800s, as land was cleared for farming, and the wood used to build homes. That forest has returned. It is common in Connecticut, for example, to see rock walls running through thick forest. How did those walls come to be? Simple -- when the land was cleared, the farmers had to do something with all those rocks. These were used to mark boundaries.

Trees are renewable resources. Smart use allows their use.

The "Rocks" I've been posting is about locking up carbon dioxide gas in carbonates.

Bob, the problem is, those places were cleared when there was a LOT more available to take the slack.

Now that we have so much less, clear cutting and the like does NOt work. Also, in many areas, they are not being replanted.

Is this "fair" for the development of some of the late-comers? No, certainly not. But that is where the front runners (US, Europe, China, Japan, etc) should look to HELP develop these other countries and eliminate their need for clear cutting or an industrial revolution.

Pre-colonial America east of the Mississippi River was largely one gigantic forest, 1000 miles by 1000 miles, broken up by places like the Shenandoah Valley, the breadbasket before the Great Plains.

Europeans must have been astonished by all that wood.

Not sure what date, but there's more forest land east east of the Mississippi now than the early 20th century. Practically all the Adirondacks is secondary growth. But it's not anything like the original ecosystem.
