Having been informed of the initiative through a post by Terri Windling of the Endicott Studio for Mythic Arts, I am happy to endorse the United Nations Environment Programme's Billion Tree Campaign. The idea is simple: Planting no fewer than one billion trees around the world during 2007 represents a small step toward reforesting the planet. Those trees, in addition to improving soil and water resources, will begin to mitigate the accumulation of atmospheric carbon dioxide, a leading contributor to global climate change.
When you've finished making your pledge to the Billion Tree Campaign, be sure to read the Endicott Studio's follow-up posts on spherical treehouses and the art of trees and wood.
