ACTION to stop old-growth forest logging by California's carbon market:
week California is to decide whether REDD+ forest carbon offsets – which
include funding for first time industrial logging of old-growth forests – is
worthy of inclusion as a carbon credit under the state's carbon markets.
Logging old-growth forests is an ecological disaster that threatens local
livelihoods, biodiversity, ecosystems, climate, and the biosphere; and must not
be funded by carbon markets. Members of the forest carbon industry supporting
REDD+ must be compelled to stop their old forest logging greenwash - or face
ridicule, protest, and an end to public support, until they do.
