Default Re: Study: Environmentalists Have ‘Substantially Worse than Average’ Carbon Footprint

Trees only help with that if they're in the right places... like near the equator. But, they can only do so much anyway. Much is absorbed by the oceans which has already set in motion a slow catastrophe.

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
