For the first time researchers have attempted to estimate the direct impact of trees on air pollution and human health. What they found was that trees improved overall air quality in the united states by only one percent. However, that one percent improvement prevents 850 premature deaths, 670,000 incidences of acute respiratory symptoms and saved $7 billion in health care spending.

HAH Patriarch Bartholomew must be happy of this assessment.

Vain existence can never exist, for \\\"unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.\\\" (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
