New Science on Trees
It seems obvious that having trees around the places we live and work is a good thing, but maybe some people need it spelled out for them in figures, and so, this news from Treehugger: Loss of Trees Linked to Higher Death Rates in Humans. (I actually found it through Grist.org: Trees May Be Keeping You Alive, which is a more concise read.) It’s definitely on a more subtle level than the whole carbon cycle we learned of in school. I can’t help but feel that if more people paid attention to how places affect them energetically, this wouldn’t need to only worked out quite so exhaustively to convince city planners.
