    • Estimada karen :

      Estoy impresionado con su publicación ” Deforestation in NY Reflection” porque tiene un artículo interesante que dice “For my failed mission, I came to a conclusion that one needs to not only be passionate about the side of the issues, but also a prominent activist” .

      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es : “I would try to engage in conversations, either agreeing more or criticizing ideas to get others to listen and message me” porque esta información vale millones .

      Gracias por su escritura . Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque este es un tema de importancia para la comunidad de lectores.

    • Dear Karen,
      I am Richard, an elementary school teacher from the Bronx, NY. I am grateful for your creation of a blog about the deforestation of trees within our state. Please don’t feel that there wa something unadequate about your blog. I believe that we humans take trees for granted. They can be so huge, they may require so little care, and we may assume that if we chop down a thousand here, well we plant 2,000 more somewhare else.
      I always loved trees, but more so now that I realize what a simple climate change machine they are. I taught that to my 5th grade students, then taught them to “service” the trees so they’d last longer in the tough city environment. I learned about the tiny nation of Bhuttan, where every citizen is razor-focused on planting trees to combat climate change. Last year I read “The Hidden Life of Trees”, whereby the scientist shares his discoveries regarding the intelligence of trees and how trees communicate with each other.
      I applaud your activism Karen. You’re getting the job down. Even if only I person responded to your blog, you made an impact. Because of people like you, we’ll save the climate crisis.
      In Soliidarity,
      Richard Geldmacher
      White Plains, NY

  • Dear Jennifer:
    I am glad to read that there are others who took notice of this problem our world currently has. Your little message to the “future president” made me think about an issue my community has. I live in NYC and of course there has to be some sort of construction project. And many of those times, trees surrounding that area must be cut…Read More
