Commonsense from the UN

UN report: Nature best controls climate gases

Who could have predicted?  This report has good ideas; unusual for a UN document:

The report said better management of forests, more careful agricultural practices and the restoration of peatlands could soak up significant amounts of carbon dioxide, the most common of the gases blamed for global warming.

Global warming aside, such measures are sure to mitigate a number of ills plaguing man:  Desertification due to deforestation and famine due to low crop yields to name two.
