Is Dogwood Alliance For Climate Change?

 

A Future Forest + Jobs analysis of a Dogwood Alliance report finds that Dogwood’s policy recommendations would reduce carbon sequestration by 35%, shrink forest area, and eliminate more than 70,000 jobs in North Carolina. “These groups care more about attacking the forest products and bioenergy sectors than making smart, scientifically-supported climate and energy policy,” comments Brian Rogers, spokesman for Future Forest + Jobs.

In collaboration with the Oregon‑based Center for Sustainable Economy (CSE), the Dogwood Alliance examined the carbon impact of North Carolina’s forest products industry. Dogwood/CSE concluded that “industrial logging” was the state’s third–largest source of emissions and advocated for a massive government intervention into private land ownership in order to maximize carbon sequestration from North Carolina’s forestland.

According to Future Forest + Jobs, citing a review of the Dogwood/CSE study by the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI), a nonprofit that provides scientific research about the forest products industry, Dogwood/CSE’s report is full of “analytical errors and significant omissions and oversights.”
