    This Earth Day, it almost feels like we should be carving some turkey. Why? Because we have a lot to be thankful for since the first Earth Day event occurred 49 years ago.

    The main reasons for the deforestation in North Korea are timber production and firewood consumption. “Most cooking and heating in rural areas is fueled by wood and biomass and because of supply constraints, household coal use has declined since 1990.” North Korea (officially called the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, DPRK) has experienced deforestation for […]
