Default California to Withdraw Harmful "Carbon Credits for Clearcuts" Forest Policy

California to Withdraw Harmful "Carbon Credits for Clearcuts" Forest Policy
excerpt from above:
Quote:
SACRAMENTO, Calif.— In response to a formal legal letter filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, the California Air Resources Board has proposed to withdraw its adoption of a “Forest Project Protocol” that would have allowed logging companies to earn valuable carbon credits for clearcutting projects and other destructive practices. At its February 25 meeting, the Board will consider reversing its adoption of the protocol pending a legally required review of environmental impacts to forests and the climate.

What were they thinking to ever have passed this legislation in the first place? There are not even that many trees left in California.
