Management curbs climate change
Nov. 14, 2014 – Sustainable forest management making good use of wood products will curb climate change, according to an opinion column in the Seattle Times.
"Using wood to its highest and best potential is not only good for the environment; it contributes to jobs, especially rural jobs," writes Bruce Lippke.
He writes that the only way to reverse climate change is to employ carbon-negative technologies that actively remove carbon-emissions from the air. As trees mature, they sequester less carbon from the atmostphere before dying and decomposing, which returns carbon to the atomosphere.
