Please allow me to give my viewpoint as an environmentalist of the USA....................................Family planning is a key in this process. In a village of 1000 people in Nepal that has enough land to support only that many, it is not practical for the village to cut down their forest to start a wood carving business so that every couple can have 6 children. When the forest is gone and there are 6000 people on land that will feed 1000 people, what is their future? Better for them to leave the forest and limit their children to two; and a tree must be planted for every one cut down. chris wiegard
