A proposed bill would provide for better forest management — i.e., thinning or limited logging. Continue reading
Good-bye logging, roads and other forest activity. Continue reading

“The Amazon rainforest is the most important patch of land on the planet.“
Probably most of the planet would disagree with that statement.
“The trees have been called the lungs of the Earth“
True enough. Lungs take oxygen from the atmosphere and release carbon dioxide into it. Tree do likewise nocturnally.
“ and that’s far more than just a metaphor: they absorb more than 2 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide per year, return oxygen in exchange and help regulate the climate of the Western Hemisphere in the process.“
Diurnally, perhaps but that is insignificant compared with oceanic exchange and savannah grasslands, come to think of it. This is typical bunny-hugger twaddle of no consequence.

If they logged the damned forest there wouldn’t be a need to thin it and burn it but no, they have to lock away a resource and charge extra to do so Continue reading

These guys don’t even know why we should reduce forest fuel loads and/or harvest resources Continue reading
A ruling by the whacky Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals would allow enviros to shut down logging by requiring road stormwater run-off to be managed by logging-stopping permitting rather than logging-enabling “best practices.” Continue reading
