Canada sets aside its boreal forest as giant carbon vault

Date : 29th October 2009, Source : The Guardian (UK)



In the far north latitudes, buried within a seemingly endless expanse of evergreen forests, the authorities in Canada are building up one of the world's best natural defences against global warming. In a series of initiatives, Canadian provincial governments and aboriginal leaders have set aside vast tracts of coniferous woods, wetlands, and peat. The conservation drive bans logging, mining, and oil drilling on some 250m acres an area more than twice the size of California.
