Massive forest restoration project makes steadfast progress: ‘This will be the largest natural structure on the planet’

"So, how does it work? TREES supports smallholder farmers with training, seeds, tools, and grants to grow 'forest gardens' instead of tired old monocultures.

Taiwan’s Lai needs to rethink nuclear shutdown plan

"Some misguided environmental activists and old party hands who have not moved on from the 1980s might be alienated, but millions of voters who backed the KMT and TPP in January would be gratified if Lai showed his party recognizes how important energy abundance is for a thriving Taiwan.

It is a change mirrored in Congress and among the public. In the face of the existential risk of climate change, there has been a significant reconsideration of nuclear energy and, I believe, it will lead to the widespread deployment of a new generation of advanced nuclear units.
