Have you thanked the trees lately?

I think you should

by Steve Cook

It is fascinating that there is so much attention among we humans as to what we disagree about.

Sometimes of course we disagree about the wrong things or fail to disagree with things we should should disagree with, such as war, the drugging of our kids, the skulduggery of the power elite and so forth.

But community, peace and the team game called survival depend upon us finding those things we CAN agree on. Human co-action towards agreed-upon survival goals, the cohesion of groups large and small – from the family right on up to the largest group of all, humanity – depend upon us finding points of agreement.

There is a lot of disagreement for instance about climate change: what exactly is happening and why, whether anything is happening at all and so forth. And if we don’t find points we can agree upon, we cannot coordinate co-action and thus CONTROL our own future rather than leaving it all to haphazard chance or the whim of fickle gods. We live, in other words, in a state of chaos.

This is where the trees come in.

All, or most of us, regardless of whatever other opinions we may have, can agree that trees are good to have around preferably in abundance, that ensuring the planet has enough trees to be able to breathe properly is a good idea, that planting more trees is desirable, especially as it does not cost much relatively speaking and trees tend by and large to take care of themselves once planted, which is more than you can say for humans.

Trees breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. We breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. Having plenty of trees around therefore not only recycles CO2 out of the atmosphere but puts INTO the atmosphere the oxygen levels we happen to need for good health, or indeed any health at all.

So trees are good.

Not only do they help us breathe and stay healthy, they also provide a key point upon which we can all agree.

Trees are our friends.

Thank you, trees!


The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
