Actually, increases in temperature PRECEDE increases in CO2.

Also, the solution to disappearing forests is more industrial development. It is the poor countries where one find forests being devastated.

“Actually, increases in temperature PRECEDE increases in CO2.”

This jury is still out and I saw a good argument refuting this finding. The work is not published yet, but I saw a discussion that showed the original work had problems with the calibration of C-14 dates.

Again, I’ll have to find the reference when I return home, but the short discussion I saw seemd reasonable.

Also, your industrial argument is a little bit short sighted. Did you consider that increased industrialiazation for its own sake feeds the need for raw materials. Besides, third world countries log because there is big bucks in it. Poor logging practices elsewhere cause occassional bottle necks which make it attractive to cut virgin forests in undeveloped countries.
