I was under the impression there are more trees in the US today than 100 years ago?

I'm not sure if that is true or not, but that is (1) not a good estimation of wilderness loss and (2) probably not representative of the situation globally. The US isn't the entire planet. We have been outsourcing deforestation to places like Brazil for a while now.

But is there more forest? They need to be close together to form an ecosystem. Most of them are probably spaced out of far. And the more expansive the forest (not broken up by highways, housing, developments, etc) the more stable the ecosystem.

I think he is correct about the US, but the rest of the world is being demolished - the rain Forrest in particular.

I guess we'll just have to try a little harder in the next 20 years if we're going to achieve the ultimate goal of total destruction. /s
