This is a very informative interview with Chad Hanson, author of Smokescreen, a book about preserving a stable climate by preserving forests. Hanson refutes wildfire risk as a justification for further forest destruction. It’s about the corporate takeover of public lands and forests, the public agencies inappropriately in the business of logging, and those who use “Orwellian language” to cover up the truth about what is happening. If you still think mechanical “thinning” (AKA logging) is the answer to wildfire, just ask the residents of Paradise. The USFS “Protection Project” is not about the “protection” of anything other than logging industry profits. Read what they want to do to OUR forest and make sure to comment by July 18th.
