Trump hails 1tn trees plan but ignores roots of problem (The Guardian)

If US president really wants to protect trees he should rethink his climate-wrecking policies

Exactly what Trumpís support amounts to in practical terms is unclear. Will he restore the protected lands that he opened up for commercial development, the biggest reduction in public lands in US history? Reverse his push for logging in the Alaskan Tongass National Forest? Bring back the jobs cut from the US Forest Service? Will he lean on his ally Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil to stop the burning of the Amazon?

Or will he just sign up to a snappy feel-good headline? Because who, after all, doesnít like trees?
