Did you know that of the World’s ancient forests, 80% have now been destroyed? And half of that amount has been in the last 30 years?
Me neither, until today. Read it on the guardian site of course – fascinating stuff, horrifying too.
Make no mistake, we destroy forests at our peril. Also, as someone who believes in a created universe (without specifying method) I believe that there is something very wrong with destroying our surroundings. Seems like our ever warming earth agrees with me.
Also didnt know that Russia is home to one fifth of the world’s total forest area! Blimey!
