New evaluation how much damage to/danger from, world forests

Greg Hunt insists that forest tree planting is his most effective means of “reducing emissions”. Of course, he actually means “offset”, trees absorbing CO2, while avoiding action to reduce emissions by power stations. Ever increasing heat and drought now lead to desiccation of huge areas of native forest, tinder dry ready for more and bigger fires. How long can we let Greg Hunt get away with nonsense about not reducing emissions? He also says he wants to reforest developing countries, as long as he receives and they don’t get value of carbon reduction certificates. But didn’t John Howard do this, for $100M of taxpayers money, to Indonesia, disappeared without trace. Is it time for us to make sure they know proposals like this are looking shonky?
