"Plundering the Boreal Forests," A. Acharya, World Watch, 21-29, May-June 1995.

Boreal forests of the far north are disappearing at least as rapidly as tropical forests. As in the tropics, logging involves mismanagement of natural wealth, threatens indigenous cultures, and degrades the biodiversity of large areas. One of the biggest benefits of the boreal ecosystem is the enormous amount of carbon that it stores.

Item #d95aug72

"Are Sarawak's Forests Sustainable?" F. Pearce, New Scientist, 28-31, Nov. 26, 1994.

Despite the industry's claims to the contrary, timber companies in the Malaysian state of Sarawak are harvesting more than twice as much timber as they should, in what many regard as the world's most unsustainable timber operation.
