Re:


Yeah but he's talking about huge tracts of land that aren't harvested, but are forests on the edge of inhabited areas, in other words just "wild" wide open places. It's different if you're talking about forests deliberately created for the purpose of making wood available for whatever people use wood for. We have those too. There are forests of pine trees which are harvested and then the wood used for pulp for paper mostly, and some furniture, since we build mostly with brick. We also have large forests that are simply wild places where animals live. Those aren't cleared for new planting. What he was talking about was clearing up under trees that grow naturally. He also lied about speaking to the president of Finland. But then he lies every time he opens his big mouth.

Re: Finland


It's a grim independence day with far-right and anti-fascists marching in Helsinki. This has become a time for demonstrations.

Re: Finland


And now we're discussing whether Nazi flag should be banned.

Personally I think it's a slippery slope - and ineffective/counterproductive - to ban symbols and flags by law.

First time in records under 70% of Finland's population are members of the Lutheran Church of Finland.

My earliest school books in 80's said it was 95% at the time - I recall even seeing 97% stats somewhere.

Re: Finland


Parliament normally takes a month-long break before elections - which will be at April.

However current government wants to finish its "social and healthcare reform" - that isn't cuts, it's fixing things so that people get more with less money used... yeah, right - so they are about to make parliament work through the customary break.

Re: Finland


Beginning next month, raccoon dogs are outlaws.
They are defined harmful invasive species and you no longer need hunting license for them.

Re: Finland


I'll tell you what's awful. A hunter on TV told that best bait for raccoon dogs is... dead raccoon dog! They're cannibals!
But seriously, it's East Asian species that was brought to Europe by Russians for furs. They're menace to birds nesting on ground.


Shocking statistics: 2018 Finland had least births since famine years in mid-1800's.
