Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I like Edwards' for two reasons.

First: trees are just one of many things mentioned, and almost as an afterthought. Second: if instead of making it a volunteer corps the volunteers receive a stipend it will be a much needed keynesian stimulus. Even without paying for the labour (ugh!!!) it will increase the demand for efficient energy technologies and make them more viable and cheaper, as well as improving the energy efficiency of teh country generally.

Is that all that Hillary Clinton says? "trees play such an important role and we need to figure out a win-win strategy for reforestation"? Please say it ain't

Obama's smacks of agribusiness subsidies: he will reward domestic land owners for engaging in practices that improve carbon sequestration.

We have met the enemy, and he is us — Pogo
