A few salient facts from Ru

Hello People. Just a quick word to say – We really appreciate the feedback we’ve had to this project. It’s pretty scary putting your own idea out to the world – you never know how it’s going to be received and we’ve been touched (and relieved) by the way everybody has responded.

As Treeflights has only been going for a month now, we’re still feeling our way thru a lot of the issues and the feedback really helps us chart the way forward, so keep it coming please.

Some facts for ya.
Us humans made 8 billion individual passenger flights last year, while we lost 7 million hectares of forest. The worlds trees currently absorb 20-25% of all human CO2 emissions and the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is higher now than at any time for 650,000 years.
What does this mean for us?

Because we only have one atmosphere which we all share, climate change will provide a learning for each and everyone of us. Some of the lessons ahead will be painful but for humans acting in concert, nothing is impossible.

Perhaps the title here wants to be "salient facts"?
