The reason why most people labor under a misapprehension about the state of the world’s forests is that news stories often ignore reforestation. In about half the world, there is net reforestation—not despite economic development, but because of it. https://t.co/3RphSJliVF— HumanProgress.org (@HumanProgress) 13 December 2018
How many trees are there in Ontario, Canada?
85 billion. Population of Ontario: 14.2 million people. So, for each person in the province there are 6,000 trees. The problem isn't not enough trees. The problem is that there is not enough space for real estate. Canada is absolutely huge. Yet, two of the most expensive real estate markets in the world are in Vancouver and Toronto. Banks are definitely happy but the average Canadian suffers in this artificial supply crunch.
