According to the U.N. It’s the End of the World as We Know It...

Some times it is just good to hear good news. Especially if it might piss off the water melons. This article gives some credence to conservation efforts put forth in the U.S. in the last 125 years. I might add with out trampling on property rights.
Yes conservation as in Conservative = Steward of the Republic and of the land.

It’s the End of the World as We Know It......and, yes, I feel fine. As does the U.S.

The bad news is that a new United Nations report says the world's coming to an end.

But, first, some good news: America's doing great!

Seriously, forests are breaking out all over America. New England has more forests since the Civil War. In 1880, New York State was only 25 percent forested. Today it is more than 66 percent. In 1850, Vermont was only 35 percent forested. Now it's 76 percent forested and rising. In the south, more land is covered by forest than at any time in the last century. In 1936 a study found that 80 percent of piedmont Georgia was without trees. Today nearly 70 percent of the state is forested. In the last decade alone, America has added more than 10 million acres of forestland.
