First reaction: Can we just stop shifting the blame around? Can everybody involved please just accept their part of the responisibility, make the necessary changes, and allow us all to move on?

But that was after seeing the headline: Western Consumption Causes ‘Forest Shrinkage’.

So, second reaction: Oh, it’s a report by the WWF pointing out that China is not in fact the source of all evil, and that the Western demand for cheap furniture regardless of the consequences plays a very large part in the destruction of forests around the world.

But, no, actually, that was the third reaction. My real second reaction was me reacting to my first reaction (told you I need a holiday): What am I thinking? Expecting my fellow humans to actually behave responsibly?
