West Hollywood, California (Thursday, November 5, 2009) - The bipartisan Commission on Climate and Tropical Forests made a startling, indeed radical, recommendation earlier this month to fight global warming.
The Commission found that deforestation exceeds the impacts of every car, truck, train and airplane in the world, recommending that preservation of the world’s rain forests take priority over other global warming measures the most effective way to cut green house gases.
While we can’t create a rain forest in West Hollywood, we can create an urban arboreal canopy that would contribute to the fight against global warming
The bottom line is that trees matter. The challenge is for us to figure out how we can act locally to make meaningful changes to our urban environment.
