greenhouse gas policy
Often times, policies and literature discussing options for reducing greenhouse gases speak of net savings or costs associated with curbing the volume of emissions released into the atmosphere. But who will ultimately spend or save money as a result of these options?
large amounts of forested areas in the Southwest are in need of thinning to reduce the risk of intense wildfires that destroy all trees, large and small. Southwestern state climate action plans recommended increasing the use of small trees and other woody biomass produced from forest thinning projects as a source of energy for home heating and biomass-to-energy facilities.
