More on Sheryl Crow’s Toilet Paper

R.J. Smith, the doyen of free market environmentalists, emails:

US was/could be supplying world with inexpensive fast-growing pine trees, easily chipped and pulped for paper products.

While each acre of tropical forests has thousands of rare species. Go figure.
