Nature is simple, but not too simple.

Heard there is another movie to scare people on the seriousness of deforestation. Yet, a co-founder of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore explains that, rather than using less wood, we should use more wood and thus plant more trees because young trees are the natural, efficient and effective absorbing agent of CO2.

It seems to me, as in many issues, the obvious problem is trees were being over harvested, and therefore the obvious response was to stop the cutting of trees.

The expert suggest that harvesting should continue if not increase, and the problem is over-harvest, not harvest itself. Thus, it is not a must to stop harvesting, but to plant even more trees to have the rate goes from "over" to "under".
