Yea, you don't need to be a carpenter to know what stick homes are framed with...

The biggest threat to forests is the cattle and palm industries in places like Brazil, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Sustainable forestry is better than non-sustainable.

Actually, there is a faint hope that the Chestnut and other American Hardwoods will make a comeback in the eastern US.

The greatest irony of all is that those with children are usually the ones screaming the loudest that nothing is wrong and we shouldn't have to change our behaviors or even slightly take responsibility for the destruction of the ecosystem that allows us, the Human Race, to live and flourish on this planet.

I learn more about what happens in the US from foreign news than I ever do from US news, with the exception of The News Hour on PBS, NPR and Democracy Now.

American mass media and "journalism" is a vast miasma of bloated infomercial junk food weight loss car commercial erection drug propaganda aimed at conditioning whats left of the American Mind into dull and plodding consumerism and hopelessness.

Bread and Circuses and all that.

Beyond that, any notion that we should be ashamed of how we have treated other species, destroyed habitats and whatever seems asinine.

Agent Smith:
I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area.
There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is?
A virus.
Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.

Wow, maybe if you had been paying attention, you would understand that the reason government is "breaking down" is because of unchecked corporate power. It is in the best interest of multinational corporations to "break down" any barriers in their way to profits at all cost, regardless of human or environmental well being.

If entropy is increasing, where is it coming from?
