Ghost Forest III

As you may have seen on BBC London News, Angela Palmer's collection of dead tree stumps - Ghost Forest - has arrived in Trafalgar Square and will litter the place until Friday. It doesn't look nearly as picturesque as this artist's impression makes out; but, if you're into dead tree stumps, you know where to go. As all these trees died naturally, I can't see that their stumpy presence has anything to say about climate change or deforestation. Videos of melting glaciers and of dead children being dug out of mud slides make the point far more effectively. Of course it's a great self-publicity stunt for Angela.
