Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On her "Energy independence and global warming" issues page there is no mention of forests or, for that matter, trees.
Wait, maybe that is okay, then? From your diary I got the impression that the frontrunners made reforestation for carbon sinks a key policy, which in light of the newer data would seem to be a problem. But if trees are not important to them it doesn't matter that trees won't work as well as previously expected.

Key policy may be a stretch, it is part of Edwards and Obama's global warming mitigation plans.

The reason I mentioned the three Democratic front runners is the next president will have a significant role, I believe, to play addressing climate change. All three of their plans to address climate change are weak, in my opinion, and rely too much on hope and technological breakthroughs that may never come. Plus, for the American audience -- getting people to pay attention to the environment on Iowa caucus day -- is an uphill battle.
