They say this all the time here...but will anything change?

Thoughtful piece from here the CBC about how the best way to prevent/curb future pandemics is to keep our land healthy and full of trees. It's also the best way to fight climate change, as they figured out and actually DID SOMETHING ABOUT, in Ethiopia (link to BBC).

They've cut down all the little forest patches like we have around here the last two years. I can't even go for a drive without crying...all those murdered trees in piles across the fields. *deep sigh* They've been removed to create more farmland, but that's really not that much of a comfort. Actually feels like greed, which is root of many decisions. It's better than a Vinyl Village, though...

How can I be heard on this? To whom would I send a letter? Like, who actually decides that stuff is what I'm getting at. Who could make the change happen? There is someone sitting in a chair somewhere that could fix this problem with a pen stroke.

Let's make noise for the trees. ...They do literally keep us and the planet alive.
