And the Earth Responds...

So I find two things interesting about this.

1) I thought the rainforest was being obliterated. These guys say it's growing.
2) Mother nature (like market forces) has an amazing tendency toward equilibrium. Often things such as mankind or natural disaster (volcanos or meteor strikes) shock the environment out of wack. But it always finds some way to compensate and fix the issue. This doesn't mean that we should ignore the environment and just let it on its way, if we didn't curb CFCs or industrial pollution, we could certainly overwhelm these natural adjustment tendencies. But, maybe we don't need all of the alarmism about shifts in the weather or the ozone, etc.
