Good news ... sort of

The good news: The speed of global deforestation is showing signs of slowing down because of new planting and natural forest extension, according to new figures. (article here)

The sort of: An average 7.3 million hectares was lost annually over the last five years. This was down from 8.9 million hectares (22 million acres) a year between 1990 and 2000.

The loss is still astounding. One hopes the trend speeds up. (This blog was produced without the use of paper.)

Hmmm. That's not quite good enough, is it? There still seem to be a heck of a lot of newspapers and flyers making their way into our recycling box, and we don't even subscrib to any!
