Norway becomes first country to ban deforestation

Green (Living) Review

Norway has become the first country to stop clear-cutting of trees, a huge step toward curbing global deforestation. It's a pledge Norway made at the U.N. At the rate we are going, the world's rain forests could completely vanish in 100 years.
