March 9, 2008(Earth) – Ecological Internet’s campaign to end ancient forest logging as a keystone response to the climate change and biodiversity crises intensified this past week. Over one thousand people from 57 countries sent a third of a million protest emails to staff members of large environmental groups, protesting their fiction that killing centuries old trees in ancient forests is environmentally sound and well-managed forestry. The alert remains current and can still be sent.
Greenpeace, WWF, Rainforest Action Network, NRDC, Forest Ethics, Friends of the Earth and Rainforest Alliance were called upon to immediately end their support for the Forest Stewardship Council’s (FSC) greenwashing of first time logging of primary and old-growth forests — or face continuing protest. The protest contained detailed ecological analysis debunking claims that logging ancient rainforests has environmental merit.
