Via Treehugger comes the following good news wrapped in bad grammar:

Pines, Eucaliptus, Cipres and Molle saplings will be planted in 18 of the country’s departments. The government estimates that these trees will be able to capture over 570 thousand tons of cabon dioxide yearly…for the rest, go to the Treehugger articolo and give ’em some traffic love.
