Earth First! Humboldt

Keep an eye on the timber wars. Like coals smoldering underground, the resistance to Old-Growth logging and clear-cutting may be out of sight for most, but the strong wind of highly destructive logging plans is in the forecast and forest defenders are watching- check out the new website..

Ain't over til it's over

For me, the Pacific Lumber Bankruptcy has been a long series of delays and postponements. Now we face the whole shebang getting dragged into appeals court by the creditors, those who initally said they wanted to make peace and foster sustainable forestry in Humboldt. Now we've been witnessing the other side of their forked tongue as they threaten the viability of the business they claimed they would rescue by dragging out the courtroom B.S. . I don't expect this to be over anytime soon. I hope I'm proven wrong but it looks like the status quo at PL will remain the same for quite a while more while the same terrible logging practices continue, albeit at a slower pace.
