Jim L. Bowyer

Changing Realities In Forest Sector Markets. Article by Jim L. Bowyer. It has long been the case that the world’s most developed economies consume a much larger percentage of basic raw materials than the percentage of global population collectively represented by these economies. Wood is no exception. A unique aspect of this particular raw material is that the way in which it is used differs widely between developed and developing countries. There is growing evidence that these longstanding realities are about to change in an unprecedented way. Article >> More about Jim L. Bowyer >>

Forest Carbon Accounting Considerations In US Bioenergy Policy. Study by Jim L. Bowyer, et al. As long as wood-producing land remains in forest, long-lived wood products and forest bioenergy reduce fossil fuel use and long-term carbon emission impacts. The increased use of forest-derived materials most likely to be used for bioenergy in the United States (would result in) low net greenhouse gas emissions, especially compared with those for fossil fuels.

Managing Forests Because Carbon Matters: Integrating Energy, Products, and Land Management Policy. Study by Jim L. Bowyer, et al. The objective of reducing global greenhouse gases (GHG) requires increasing carbon storage in pools other than the atmosphere. Growing more forests and keeping forests as forests are only part of the solution, because focusing solely on the sequestration benefits of the forests misses the important (and substantial) carbon storage and substitution GHG benefits of harvested forest products.

Sustainability And The Resource Manager Of Tomorrow. Presentation by Jim L. Bowyer. Leading the list of concerns regarding forests worldwide is the on-going specter of tropical deforestation, today estimated at about 42 million acres (17 million hectares) annually. The fact that the tropical forests house much of the world’s biodiversity accentuates this concern. Unfortunately, the rate of tropical deforestation has accelerated over the past third of a century, with a marked increase in clearing over the latter half of the period. The rate of tropical deforestation is currently estimated at 0.9% annually, compared to 0.6% just a decade ago. Article >> More about Jim L. Bowyer >>

Lester Brown

Ethanol Could Leave The World Hungry. Article by Lester Brown. The myth that corn is a cure-all for our energy woes is leading us toward a potentially dangerous global fight for food. While crop-based ethanol - the latest craze in alternative energy - promises a guilt-free way to keep our gas tanks full, it could leave much of the world hungry. Article >>

Ethanol's Failed Promise. Article by Lester Brown and Jonathan Lewis. The "food-to-fuel" mandates should be changed because they do not move "America toward energy independence and mitigate global climate change... the evidence irrefutably demonstrates that this policy is not delivering on either goal. In fact, it is causing environmental harm and contributing to a growing global food crisis." Article >>

Full House: Reassessing The Earth's Population Carrying Capacity. Article by Lester Brown and Hall Kane. This article discusses Brown and Kane's book on carrying capacity. It projects that over the next 40 years the world will face massive grain deficits in Africa, the Indian subcontinent, and China as populations grow. Article >>

The Global Population Conundrum. Interview with Lester Brown. Between now and 2050, three billion people will join the six billion-plus that already live on this planet. How will we possibly feed them? Lester Brown has been consumed by this question for decades. Interview >>

"" Restructuring the Global Economy. Presentation excerpt by Lester Brown. In a speech to a Commonwealth Club event at Hewlett Packard in Palo Alto, California, Brown describes the need to restructure the global economy to cope with the challenges ahead. Presentation Excerpt >>

"" Review of Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization. Article by Lester Brown. In the landmark Plan B 3.0, Brown outlines a survival strategy for our early twenty-first-century civilization. The scale and complexity of issues facing our fast-forward world have no precedent. With Plan A, business as usual, we have neglected these issues. In Plan B 3.0, Brown warns that the only effective response now is a World War II-type mobilization like that in the United States after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Article >>
