VIDEO: Forester describes how trees eat ½ of VT human carbon emissions, provide 18,000 jobs

Ed Larson of the Vermont Forest Products Association was in the State House yesterday describing how trees are the best friends of any realistic carbon emissions reduction policy - a fact this climate-crazy Legislature seems slow to realize.

“Despite the apparent carbon sequestration value of Vermont forests, studies and legislation to “monetize” carbon sequestration through the sale of “carbon storage credits” seem uncertain to become law this year. Areas of contention include whether the carbon credits should be sold into California’s robust market – thus reducing California’s official carbon footprint but not Vermont’s – or whether Vermont should create its own system to help sequestration meet our own stringent carbon reduction goals."
