New York Times Editorial in Support of Forest Protection

The New York Times recently offered its enthusiastic support for inclusion of provisions addressing deforestation in climate change legislation. In a May 29, 2009 New York Times editorial entitled “Forests and the Planet” NYT staff argue that “…with the rain forests shrinking and the planet warming up, it’s crucial to get the right incentives in place – first as part of broad climate change legislation in the United States, then as part of a new global treaty that the world’s nations hope to negotiate in the fall.” Check out the full editorial here: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/29/opinion/29fri2.html
