Deforestation figures improving

Hey the UN said it not me, so take it for what it's worth.

ROME (Reuters) - Some 32.5 million acres of forests are destroyed around the world each year, an area the size of Greece, although the net loss of trees has finally slowed thanks mainly to new plantations, the United Nations said on Monday.

The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said its Global Forest Resources Assessment was the most exhaustive such survey undertaken, covering 229 countries and territories.

Taking into account plantations, landscape restoration and the natural expansion of some forests, the FAO said the net loss of forest area between 2000-2005 was some 18.25 million acres a year against 22.25 million acres in the 1990-2000 period.

Maybe having more trees than expected is causing global warming which, as we all know, caused the recent hurricanes which was a plan set in motion by Bush's brain, Karl Rove to kill Democrats in New Orleans. So here is the proof Kanye West needed to prove that Bush doesn't like black people. I'm expecting Kanye's press conference any minute now.
