Little Hoover Committee Report Ignores Best Available Science in Favor of Logging

Governor Brown’s Little Hoover Commission released a Report this week “Fire on the Mountain: Rethinking Forest Management in the Sierra Nevada”.  Unfortunately this report is often factually inaccurate, ignores science and simply pushes for more logging to prop up dwindling rural economies.  The John Muir Project submitted extremely detailed comments and attended public meetings – to no avail it seems.  We need to do better for our forests and our planet.  No matter how many times you say “win win”, solutions to climate change will never be found with a chainsaw.
