Hurricanes Caused Biggest Tree Kill in US On Record

Satellite imagery shows that Hurricanes Rita and Katrina killed or damaged an estimated 320 million trees - - an unprecedented environmental disaster.

If global warming increases hurricane strength, as predicted, the cascading effects of climate change will continue to expand.

All the more reason to do everything personally and politically feasible to slow this process down.
