Fuzzy came in upset this morning. She read in the Weekend Australian that the inevitable doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide by 2030 will be a disaster for koalas and possums. Dr Woodrow, a Melbourne biologist, has found that the increased caron dioxide levels will stimulate eucalypts to produce more toxins in their leaves, making them indigestible to the marsupials, beetles, etc that depend on them.

Maybe decreased levels of lignin and cellulose will weaken the timber as well.

An impoverished environment will result.

Fuzzy has lots of plans for what we can do about the carbon dioxide levels and global warming. I wish her well.
