Scientists say patches of dead trees along the east coast are ‘the most obvious indicator of climate change’ 1.8.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Port Republic, N.J. • They’re called “ghost forests” — dead trees along vast swaths of coastline invaded by rising seas, something scientists call one of the most visible markers of climate change.

Given Trump’s climate change denial and total disregard for America’s beautiful forests, this legislative lunacy could be disastrous. I wonder who Mike Noel will blame when another Brian Head Fire rears its ugly visage? Tree huggers ...
