    So don't replace broadleafs with conifers...or parking lots.

    Shit thread title. Trolling or retarded, hard tell, since you apparently can't spell.

    Warm but at least they give us sweet. O2 and also don't add more CO2.

    Yeah... and how does that decrease in albedo stack up against a loss of snow, ice and changing cloud cover?

    The trees just wanted to get home to their families safely.

    The issue isn't Trees increasing global warming, it's that conifers are worse than broadleafs. As a simple analogy, if you replaced all the rifles used by the US army with Winchester Repeaters, they'd be much less dangerous, but that doesn't mean that rifles make people less dangerous.

    Looks like the lesson isn't "tree chopping time". Looks like the lesson, yet again, is for us to be more cautious about mass terraforming the environment. The problem isn't just the trees we're planting, but the fact we're clear-cutting so many down.

    Conifer trees would absorb more heat so it makes sense actually.
