Media coverage of SCBC’s ‘Intact Forests, Safe Communities’ report
Released on February 1, 2021, ‘Intact Forests, Safe Communities‘ is a new independent report commissioned by Sierra Club BC that looks at the relationship between forest management and severe climate impacts expected across B.C.
Written by Dr. Peter Wood, the report found that industrial logging has a significant impact on the severity and frequency of climate risks for B.C. communities. Of the 15 climate risks identified in B.C.’s 2019 Strategic Climate Risk Assessment, the majority are influenced by logging.
The report’s message is resonating across the province with over 100 mainstream media stories published since its release. Here are some of the highlights.
