Runaway economic growth comes with costs: in the case of China's economic engine, one of them has been the world's forests.

Investing in Wall St is investing in our own demise.

China can do better with their own sustainable tree farms.

Mother Earth wishes to keep all the old growth forests she's grown over time standing tall.

Noted, Thank you Cal.

We have got to stop (or at the very least slow down) deforestation. We need to plant more trees, not cut more down!!!

China, the greatest despoiler with the dirtiest environment in every respect. Is it any wonder why Canadians are up in arms trying to block the sale of companies and resources in Canada? Why should China be allowed to ruin Canada and other countries after ruining their own. They are indeed a horde of locusts.

Noted. When will those people learn? Whereas more trees have to be planted, they spend their time cutting them down.

China has major problems. It's such a huge country with so many people, that they have lost control. They will be sorry that they aren't controlling their resources.
