Why Conservationists And Timber Owners Can Love Cap And Trade

The Washington Post explains that there is great dollar value in forests because they store carbon .

Which is why owners of timberland are supporting Climate Change legislation that would, through Cap and Trade, give forests value without logging them.

This gives Climate Change legislation - - already through the US House of Representatives - - a better chance of passing the Senate.

Climate Change legislation should make for cleaner air, more pure water and a better preserved landscape.

Hard to argue with that.

Disappointing that most of the data behind your green, carbon-free utopia religion is juiced to make it appear worse though.

To Matt; That is an inaccurate allegation.

Climategate says otherwise - no matter how much you want to ignore the reality.

Cooking and/or destroying the data and scheming to ignore FOI requests are all smoking guns waiting to go off.

Who is the "denier" now James?
