Carpe Diem Moment on Forests and Climate Policy

“Include mature forests … not just old growth”

“Nationwide MOG protections would establish U.S. leadership on the Paris Climate Agreement (natural sinks and reservoirs) and the Glasgow Forest Pledge to end deforestation and forest degradation. It would demonstrate progress toward 30 x 30 and present a global model for effective forest and climate response.

“Most notably this should include mature forests, and not just old growth, due to the substantial loss of old-growth forests nationwide and the need to recover the old-forest ecosystem writ-large.”
