Carbon-offsetting And Conservation Can Both Be Winners In Rainforest
excerpts from above:
Quote:
Logged rainforests can support as much plant, animal and insect life as virgin forest within 15 years if properly managed, research at the University of Leeds has found.
Quote:
Dr Edwards is calling for the inclusion of biodiversity-friendly strategies in carbon trading schemes to ensure that carbon off-setting projects support, rather than undermine, rainforest conservation.

Novel carbon-trading scheme could stop large-scale extinctions
excerpt from above:
Quote:
A new strategy for saving tropical forest species was published in the journal Science on the eve of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen, Denmark, by a team of researchers, including William Laurance, senior staff scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and distinguished professor at James Cook University. The authors state that wealthy countries should adopt a carbon-payment system that explicitly incorporates biodiversity values.

Does anyone else get the feeling we're going to end up with the short end of the stick over these carbon payment systems and once we start they're going to have us by the gonads??? As in... cough up another 50M or else...
