That is an excellent news!!

Nearly 1.5 billion saplings planted in Turkey in four-year forestation effort

I quote:

Nearly 1.5 billion saplings were planted in Turkey over an area of 1,927 million hectares in the past four years, Turkish Directorate General of Forestry has said.

ANKARA – The forestation project was launched in 2007 as the biggest forestation effort in the country’s history and it covers an area equal to Turkey’s Thrace region, west of Istanbul to the Greek border.

The project over-achieved targets each year since it was launched and it aims to absorb 181.4 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere within the first 20-year period.”

Incredible job!!

Yours faithfully,

This blog is about the relations between Turkey and the EU. I explain how much some notorious French TV channels and other media are biased regarding Turkey. This blog is an antidote for the perpetual anti-Turkey brainwashing of numerous dark circles within the EU and the USA (On July 2011 a political adviser of a member of the EU parliament told ABHaber: "I’ve been working at the EU parliament for 6 years. When Turkey is dealt with some people press the button and everybody bestir themselves and ensure that the Turkey dossier is concluded negatively. Difficult to understand. There is an unnamed anti-Turkey mechanism at the EU parliament. Completely organized"). Imagine that you're listening to Bach or Kenny Kirkland – or to your favourite song – in harmony. But suddenly, someone is screeching a piece of chalk on a blackboard. That screech that you heard is racism. Well it is useful to highlight this: the Turks are not “true” Muslims according to the Arabs whereas they are not “true” Europeans according to the Europeans. So who are the Turks? Where do they live? I think that I’ve discovered a new continent on our planet. Its name: Turkope. Jules Verne would be proud of me! more.
