    I remember writing to them in 2005 about this and receiving their standard attempt at greenwash.
    I don't think they'll stop until they've destroyed it all.
    At least they're not clearing it for oil sands extraction and it might have a chance to grow back 🙁

    Surely it would just be best to leave these old forests alone and concentrate on more artificial sustainable forestry. Deforestation of this kind has got to be the most harmful form, as these old boreal forest are massive CO2 sinks.

    An answer to the water shortage problem might be to REMOVE THE LIDS from all bottles, both plastic and glass before disposing of them. At least give the liquid a chance to escape by evaporation or maybe some insect will get in there or just dirt. there must be BILLIONS of gallons of water lost forever in landfills, etc even the little bit left on the inside of the bottle amounts to A LOT!!!
    how much effect on the climate and global warning does this have????

    There is a need to establish World Parks all over the planet where humans cannot go unless they go in light footprint way, some call no piston heads allowed.
    In Canada, that would be the Arctic, the Rockies and all coasts and rivers for a start..
    If we could pull humans back into a reserve area of say 10% of the planet, it might have a chance.
