Controversial timber sale “paused” in Wishbone WA as NGOs sue after Washington Department of Natural Resources fails to look at climate impacts.
In the wake of the IPCC’s most frightening report yet, as we see the collapse of the forest carbon sink due to overlogging for biomass fuel, it’s a no-brainer to slam the brakes on logging forests for renewable energy
The current reform to forest biomass policy supported by the Council will lead to ecosystem and climate collapse
The future of Europe’s forests should not be decided by a Presidency that has been pushing for years to increase their exploitation – this is an explicit conflict of interest.
