Planting trees to "offset" one's CO2 emissions sounds like a neat idea. However, the natural world is very complex and we have to be very careful what we do to it. Really, the best and only reliable way to deal with CO2 is to produce much less of it in the first place. For most of us this will mean making some substantial changes to our lifestyles, not all of which will seem easy.Richard Tanner, 15 years ago.
