Sign Up To Save Old Forests From Destruction.

Dear Forest Loving Colleagues,

WE SIMPLY MUST HAVE MORE PARTICIPATION in these alerts if they are to be successful. Last month we stopped a major geoengineering trial together, now we must unite to end primary forest logging. Sadly this means confronting our fallen brethren that participate in logging primary forests – and making it clear old forests are required to maintain our one shared biosphere.

Please send and forward this alert – might as well unsubscribe at the bottom if you are not doing so.
Regards,
Dr. Glen Barry

FSC Rainforest Logging is Disaster Capitalism:

Tell RAN and Naomi Klein, No Such Thing as “Ethical Primary Forest Timbers”

By Rainforest Portal, a project of Ecological Internet

TAKE ACTION HERE NOW:

SHAME!

Rainforest Action Network (RAN) is one of the primary obstacles to protecting ancient rainforests as they promote their first time industrial logging. RAN founded and ardently supports the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) destruction of 320,000,000 acres of primary forests (the size of South Africa), including for toilet paper and lawn furniture.

This week RAN throws another swanky celebrity filled party to congratulate themselves for logging primary forests to protect them, and to raise further money for more such “rainforest protection”. Noted author Naomi Klein will be their guest of honor and receive an award from RAN. Please make Naomi aware of this greenwash, ask that she decline the award to protest RAN’s disaster capitalism, and demand that RAN resign from FSC.
