ask a genius (me): cause of floods in queensland?

Cause of floods in queensland: it’s not CO2 or climate change, it’s lack of trees / forests. Forests accumulate soil, buffer the water and release it into the rivers gradually.

Idiot humans cut down the forests and put cows, sheep, crops. Then when it rains heavily, almost all the rain goes directly into the rivers, causing a flood.

The fact that humans have cut down half of the Earth’s forests over the last few thousand years is also the major cause of CO2 accumulation and climate change; it’s more significant than human emissions of CO2. http://sam.ai.ki/co2 [ unscholarly citation of myself 😉 ]

Go plant some trees, e.g. with Ray Thomas and the Regent Honeyeater Project. And murder a lumberjack don’t waste too much paper.

  1. Can’t agree with you more. I watched a documentary called Earth. It shows how bad we humans messed things up.
