One day somebody should remind us that, even though there may be political and ideological differences between us, the Vietnamese are our brothers, the Russians are our brothers, the Chinese are our brothers; and one day we've got to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. But in Christ there is neither Jew nor Gentile. In Christ there is neither male nor female. In Christ there is neither Communist nor Capitalist. In Christ, somehow, there is neither bound nor free. We are all one in Christ Jesus.

Martin Luther King (1957-1968)

A Christmas Sermon, 1967

What's wrong with planting new forests?

Recorded: August 26th, 2019

Notes:

The video above is slowed to 90% of the original speed and lasts just over three and a half minutes (there's also the option of downloading a four minute version slowed to 80%). One way of using the video is to pause it when the title appears and then solicit answers from the class. If no-one can come up with a reason then brainstorm or introduce a list of such phrases as:

  • I don't know!
  • No idea!
  • You tell me!
  • Your guess is as good as mine!
  • Who knows?

Next go through various regions of the world and ask the class who thinks tree cover has increased there and who thinks tree cover has decreased. Then watch the video. Alternatively use this sheet.
