Something to smile about..
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica will plant seven million trees in 2008 to soak up as many greenhouse gas emissions as it produces, in a bid to become the world's first carbon neutral nation.
"The stated goal is to be the first neutral country as far as greenhouse gas emissions is concerned," said Energy and Environment Minister Roberto Dobles.
The project aims to plant seven million trees this year, meaning that in Costa Rica there would be 1.5 trees for each Costa Rican.
Pretty dam cool in my eyes.
