Personally I don't swallow the climate change fear mongering and believe concerns should exist if their was no climate change.
However carbon footprint is quite different in my opinion as it's disgusting spewing out toxic shite into the environment.
I compare it to smoking in pubs years ago, I look back on that now and think wtf were we all thinking?
And that is coming from someone not unfamiliar with smoking.
So it got me thinking about the south Broads.
Generally speaking it is an area void of trees.
In fact, the River Waveney is one of the most toxic rivers in U.K. simply down to agricultural pesticides.
Wouldn't it make sense to colonise these barren riverside lands with the tried and tested Alder tree?
These trees grow like weeds, swallow carbon dioxide up like a kid having a sugar rush at Mcdonalds and they would absorb hideous amounts of water from the flooded wetlands, not too mention drastically prevent erosion.The alder thrives in damp, cool areas like wet woodlands, marshes and the banks of streams or rivers
In addition, the wood is highly versatile and has many uses. Could be used for key headings, bank erosion control and perhaps even other forms of construction.
Most of the higher grade lumber is used for furniture, cabinetry, and turned products. Alder is also used in doors, millwork, decorative woodwork, carvings, and edge-glued panels. Alder dries to an even honey tone and can be finished to resemble more expensive fine-grained species
Surely that is more constructive than using current environmental topics as an excuse to perpetually raise tolls.
