Yeah and the speaker I said also said something to the effect that  
trees are only responsible for a tiny percentage of oxygen production  
which contradicts everything I thought I understood too. "the myth f  
the ecologists is that the rainforest is the planet's lungs". What's  
going on here ? Surely a case of reductionist analysis but what  
confusion it sows !
