Plant more trees in city, urges academic

Plant more trees in city, urges academic - Bangkok Post, August 23, 2003
Thanks to Nils Rennenberg for pointing this out: Bangkok was lagging behind other cities in the region in term of public green areas. The Thai capital had only 1.46 square metres per head, while Singapore had 10.90 sq m and Kuala Lumpur 2.96 sq m.... However, he said, public parks in Bangkok were full of decorative plants which were 10 times more expensive than big trees but not as effective in term of carbon dioxide reduction.
