Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think our forests, especially our tropical forests, are priceless. I believe certainly they are worth more as carbon sinks and ecosystems than the wood is worth as timber or the forest land is worth for soya, sugar cane, or palm oil agribusiness.

I think if we in the West are going to continue as a civilization, then we must fully factor the cost of carbon into our economy.
