Time for some home truths about deforestation - by Laura Spinney

"Between 1850 and 1920, we Europeans cut down 95m hectares of forest across Africa and Asia to make way for farms and plantations "

"Conservation and over-exploitation of the world’s resources were born in the same time and place – Europe during the industrial revolution – and have proceeded in parallel ever since. Both spring from Europeans’ search for Eden after they had destroyed it at home"
