tropical rainforests - apparently UNEP has projected that 98% of
Indonesian and Malaysian rainforests will be cleared by 2022. Perhaps

In Tasmania, the trees are used for papermaking, and are replaced
native forest or plantation timber, which take up CO2 and in theory
it after the paper endproduct breaks down.
The problem with all these great schemes is that they are very
