Greenpeace Founder Critical of 11th Hour

Patrick Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace, has some harsh criticism for The 11th Hour, Leonardo DiCaprio's newest edition to the Global Warming film library of scare tactics. He says that DiCaprio and co-conspirator collaborator Tzeporah Berman are overlooking important facts about forests and global warming.

"As a lifelong environmentalist, I say trees can solve many of the world's sustainability challenges. Forestry is the most sustainable of all the primary industries that provide us with energy and materials. Rather than cutting fewer trees and using less wood, DiCaprio and Berman ought to promote the growth of more trees and the use of more wood."

Moore says that cutting old trees doesn't make them release carbon - rotting and burning do. He further states that young trees are more effective in sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. Use of more wood would encourage the cutting of old trees, management of forests and the planting of young forests that do a better job of removing carbon from the atmosphere.

Make sure he gets his recycled scripts from recycled paper...btw you need to show me how to cross out words in the posts...I could have fun with that.

It's easy although blogger doesn't have it on the rich text menu, just use the html tags.

See the examples below the "Leave your comment" window with the "b" "i" and "a"? Just do the same only put "s" between the two symbols just before the word you want to strikeout. Then after the word use the same tag but close it by adding a / after the < and before the s then close it with >.

If I don't write it in that convoluted way, blogger will think it is html in my comment but it doesn't allow strikethroughs in comments so my comment ends up in limbo-land.
