The latest issue of Wired magazine had a cover story that attempted to debunk some common myths about environmental issues. Here was the cover text…
“Attention Environmentalists: Keep your SUV. Forget organics. Go nuclear. Screw the spotted owl.”
Wow, the article called for some interesting ways to cut carbon emissions. This article gave a whole new meaning to an inconvenient truth.
I especially like the section where the article made it clear that cutting down trees is not necessarily bad for the environment. That has always been one of my pet peeves. Some people think that cutting down a tree is the worst thing you can do. I think that trees are a great renewable resource. We should cut them down when necessary. That is a whole lot better than using wood alternatives, such as plastic or metal. Trees are the answer.
