Forests and Carbon in BC
Global climate change is well underway. Humanity has only about two to three decades to avoid the 1.5 – 2 degrees Celsius threshold and forestall runaway climate warming. Forest management plays a nearly unique role in climate change mitigation. In this report, renowned ecologist Jim Pojar lays out seven forest carbon myths, misconceptions or oversimplifications. He also provides a series of recommendations and potential solutions to help reach BC's climate targets through improved forest management.
