This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love.

Martin Luther King (1957-1968)

Beyond Vietnam - A Time to Break Silence, 1967

What's wrong with planting new forests?

Recorded: August 26th, 2019

Notes:

The video above is slowed to 90% of the original speed and lasts just over three and a half minutes (there's also the option of downloading a four minute version slowed to 80%). One way of using the video is to pause it when the title appears and then solicit answers from the class. If no-one can come up with a reason then brainstorm or introduce a list of such phrases as:

  • I don't know!
  • No idea!
  • You tell me!
  • Your guess is as good as mine!
  • Who knows?

Next go through various regions of the world and ask the class who thinks tree cover has increased there and who thinks tree cover has decreased. Then watch the video. Alternatively use this sheet.
