Yes, mhobbs has the right idea- distinguish between forestry and deforestation.
I am a Malaysian forestry student, with first-hand experience with tropical
forests. The facts speak for themselves, of the approximately 1.4 billion cubic
metres of wood cut from tropical regions in 1990 1 billion cubic metres was
used as fuel wood and only 275 million cu m was use for industrial purposes.
dlj's was wrong when he claimed most forests were destroyed by greed- it is a
matter of growing populations requiring resources and not being sophisticated
enough to use the resources sustainably.
