One more for the trees

To give a little moral support to our trees in places like the rain forest, check out “Africa’s Tropical Forests Mopping Up More and More Human CO2” by David Biello at Scientific American.

Me and my son and tall buildings

When I saw this post, I immediately thought of my son and his love of tall buildings. So for him, check out “Empire State Building Goes Green: Major Energy Efficiency Improvement Retrofit Announced” by Matthew McDermott at Treehugger.

Now that the helicopters are starting to land

Okay, so they’re not helicopters but they do land like them. For those of you who have silver maples (and we have three huge ones), it’s beginning to look a lot like…we’ll you understand. So in honor of trees everywhere, here are a few articles on trees.

The first two areĀ  “UN: Financial Crisis Puts Pressure on World’s Forests” from the Environment News Service and “U.N. Agrees to Save the Forests…but How?” from Mother Nature Network. It’s nice to see that trees are on everyone’s mind these days.

And even as we see disheartening articles like “Amazon Deforestation: Earth’s Heart and Lungs Dismembered” by Matthew Cimitile at Live Science. We also see promising articles like “Tropical Rainforests Are Regrowing. Now What?” at the Environmental News Network and “New Jungles Prompt a Debate on Rain Forests” by Elisabeth Rosenthal at the New York Times.
