Rational Christmas Trees

Next year, we all should start a new tradition for Christmas.  Yes, buy a small tree like last year, but include the roots, and plant it outside, in your backyard.  Imagine if everyone in the whole country did that, how much carbon all those new trees would take out of the atmosphere in a year’s time.

And then repeat every year.  In 10 years, you would be responsible for 10 trees taking carbon out of the atmosphere — not 10 dead trees doing nothing.

Instead, we will continue buying small trees and putting them, a fire hazard, in our homes during the holiday, and then discard them as rubbish afterwards, while complaining there is nothing anyone can possibly do about the rising carbon levels in the atmosphere.  Why?
