Am I missing something? I just see three quotes...

Is this what it's come down to?

Probably not chopping wood, most of Ireland's forests were cleared by the English centuries ago for shipbuilding.

I suppose with the kind of money Bono's got, he could make like Marie Antoinette and plant a mini-forest on his property for indulging his bucolic fantasies, should he have any.

I live on land my father bought 40 years ago.

It has been logged, since then, several times.

Trees grow back.

Last week, during my first period class, some workers were pruning some trees outside in the courtyard.

Several of my students, after hearing the chainsaws and looking out the window, commented "They're killing the trees!"

It seems the American education system, with the help of green propaganda, has been successful in this lie about trees.

I'm just picturing Bono cutting firewood

I was looking at People Magazine last night and there's a picture in there of Bono with his beautiful daughters. He's wearing a big scarf and it looks like he has no neck whatsoever and his head is just suspended there. It's odd.
