MaudlinMutantMollusk: Nadie_AZ: Out here, trees cool houses and lower power bills. Neighborhoods without trees will have higher energy bills- especially in the summer.

How much shade can you get from a Saguaro, anyway?


I guess that depends on how big it is?

Having read the article I can deduce that if we plant some trees we'll all be rich and better looking.

That neighborhood has way too many churches. They need to fix their zoning.


Also, don't bulldoze them unless you have disasters disabled.

The article was so stupid it blew the semi-valid point it made straight outta the water.

It also gets the Razzberry of the Week for its thumpingly clumsy use of the correlation/causation fallacy.

this is a classic case of the rich being given whatever they need to get richer


There are 99 reasons why there aren't trees in poorer urban areas but this ain't one.

RibbyK: FTA: this is a classic case of the rich being given whatever they need to get richer.

Classic? WTF? If someone's giving away trees (and nobody is) the poor would be first in line.
Soon we'll hear money grows on tress.


Of course money grows on trees. It makes perfect sense considering it's the rich that have all the trees.
