Kindness to koalas and everything else...
The wholesale destruction of trees in the world continues at a fast pace. Was anyone talking about this at the Paris Summit? I didn't hear anyone. We ain't got nothing if we don't have the trees.
And as this short article, written by Dr Douglas Kerlin (Australian Koala Foundation chief ecologist) makes clear, planting saplings cannot replace the carbon stores of mature trees. Read it here.
Basically if you want the koalas or the rest of the animal kingdom plus the birds, insects, plants and everything else, you better leave the trees in the ground.
And inseparable from this is the quality of the world's soils. Dr Mercola has written a comprehensive overview of it's importance here.
