Canada Has Been Logging Trees In Forests Crucial To Climate Change

The government of Canada has long promoted itself globally as a model for protecting one of the country’s most vital natural resources: the world’s largest swath of boreal forest, which is crucial to fighting climate change. But a new study using nearly half a century of data from the provinces of Ontario and Quebec — two of the country’s main commercial logging regions — reveals that harvesting trees has inflicted severe damage on the boreal forest that will be difficult to reverse even if that were to happen. Researchers led by a group from Griffith University in Australia found that since 1976 logging in the two provinces has caused the removal of 35.4 million acres of boreal forest, an area roughly the size of New York State. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/01/04/world/canada/canada-boreal-forest-logging.html

        An onslaught on its largest boreal forest is shooting itself in the foot really. Canada should move swift and reverse the damage already done

          Canadian government should stop deforestation as it's not good for our climate

          This undermines Canada's international reputation as a protector of the boreal forest.

                This is so disappointing, as it may have negative environmental impacts and contribute to deforestation. It's important to prioritize sustainable forestry practices and conservation efforts to protect these vital ecosystems.
