Hi Scally, i don´t get afraid of your warning, because i know your vision will become true and in 100 years i will reach the age of 140 and i think nowbody will reach this at all, so i don´t care ;-))) I will sleep well this night, believe me ;-))

I am 91 years old, and felling quite fit, I was married 7 years ago to a lovely lady aged 42 and we have 2 children a boy 10 and a girl 6. I would love your time projection to be correct,but there some who say that by 2020 the weather change will be exponential, obviously it will not matter to me, but I fell I should worry for all humanity. scally. AND a Very MERRY CHRISTMAS when and if it comes.LOL

I really like the contrast in this photo Andreas the sky has a moody feel about it, beautiful. Greetings From South Wales, Karen.

Agoe on November 22, 2008

Thank you very much Karen. It´s a pity when you see the trees die because of pollution, storms and parasites - mad world!

Best regards, Andreas

It is very nice Andreas, Y*. The colors of the forest and the sky is in great contrast. I was studying soil acidicication in my PhD, but my sample area was a totally intensificated agricultural land. Nice and in the same time sad to see that. Greetings from Hungary, Szilard

Agoe on March 1, 2009

Thank you Szilard! This area is in more than 900 m in altitude high, raped by acid rain, heavy storms and bark beetles.

Cheers, Andreas

In 2004 I have been to Forbach but the weather was very foggy, I did not tried to hike. This May I am planning to visit this place again, hopefully will be better circumstances. Are there good trails to hike? Szilard

Agoe on March 1, 2009

Nice to hear that you once visited my valley! It´s a paradise for hiking and I know a lot of trails!!! Give me a sign in May and I will show you!

Cheers, Andreas

Hi Agoe! My last days before the journey to Germany was so hectic that I had forgotten to say a word for You and than there were no possibility ...

Well, I have been to Forbach last Friday and took a walk to Bad Herrenalb. I enjoyed it, but miscalculated the distance ... thought that was 15 km and it was 22 :D The only problem was the rain ... with ice ... and I left my hiking boots at home ... that was a fault. I took a lot of photos, and because of the rain and heavy clouds the landscape was wonderful.

Are the trees influenced the acid rains??? I have seen your photos, but it was a surprise. The destruction is bigger than I thought.

Best wishes, Szilard PS: I uploaded some photos and I am planning to do it with some more in the future (just have to take care of gps-tracklog).
