The Real Cause of Global Warming?

I ran across this site the other day:

tenbillionacres.org

I must say, it looks interesting, but perhaps a little kooky. Their general thrust is that global warming is happening, but that it is caused by (among other things) the loss of ten billion acres of forest since 1492. That’s an idea I could get behind… but this site looks a little shaky. What do you think?
