Jonathon Porritt, British nincompoop, prefers trees to people,

The Optimum Population Trust, a campaign group of which Porritt is a patron, says each baby born in Britain will, during his or her lifetime, burn carbon roughly equivalent to 2½ acres of old-growth oak woodland – an area the size of Trafalgar Square.

Hat tip:  Ann Althouse, whom I prefer to any tree.  What say you?
