To The Editor:

Although small, I understand the fermentation process does produce CO2, a known greenhouse gas (GHG) and as such contributes to climate change, much in the same way that flatulence emits methane – a much more potent GHG.

In terms of scale, however, the burning of fossil fuels is by far the most significant emitter.

People sometimes get bugged by insects, but we need them. They play essential roles in pollination, combatting unwanted agricultural pests, recycling organic matter, feeding fish, birds and bats, and much more. They’re the most numerous and diverse animals on Earth and form the base of many terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

Down here where we live it is two.

I to my side call the meek and the mild

You to your side call the Word.

By virtue of suffering I claim to have won

There was a time when securing a good-paying forestry job in British Columbia was not just an option but an expectation for many.

This was a time when the provincial government took an active role in managing our public forests and overseeing the activities of private companies whose workers cut trees, milled wood and made pulp.

BC must dramatically change how forestry is managed and governed if it hopes to reverse today’s troubling trends, says Bob Williams, who served as the province’s forest minister in the early 1970s, in a new report for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
