- Forest Service, Idaho work to boost logging on federal land
By KEITH RIDLER, Associated Press - Friday Sep 22, 2017
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service and Idaho have forged 10 agreements for logging and restoration projects on federal land in what officials say could become a template for other Western states to create jobs and reduce the severity of wildfires.Under the deals, Idaho foresters will administer timber sales on about 10,000 acres (40 square kilometers) the federal agency has on its to-do list but can't complete because the money for the work is instead going to fight wildfires.So far this year, the cost of that fight has surpassed $2 billion — more than half the federal agency's annual budget — during one of the worst fire seasons on record in the West.
- When Indigenous People Control Their Own Land, It Protects Us All From Carbon Emissions
By Ben Paynter - Tuesday Oct 3, 2017
A new center is using mapping and legal services to help establish that indigenous people are rightful owners of rainforests around the world, in turn protecting those forests so that they can keep sequestering greenhouse gases.
Tropical rainforests controlled by indigenous people currently store 25% of the world’s carbon emissions. At the same time, “controlled” is usually something of a misnomer. While indigenous communities claim ownership of up to 50% of the world’s land, they’ve only legally secured about 10% of it. Many aren’t able to prove–with evidence accepted by courts–that the areas they’ve occupied for generations are technically theirs, giving industries the ability to work out claims or annexations of ancestral territories for mining, hydropower plants, or palm oil plantations, all of which destroy the land.
- Hobby has travelers looking for spots where 3 states touch
By PAT EATON-ROBB, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 27, 2017
Butler says he was hiking near his home in the Douglas State Forest with a topographical map in 1998 when he decided to look for the point where the three southern New England states come together.Dan Webb, the chief border surveyor with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in Utah, helped place a granite monument on the Utah-Arizona-Nevada corner last fall with cooperation from all three states.The spot is about 15 miles off Interstate 70 and hard to access, even with a four-wheel drive vehicle, he said.[...] there were flags in the ground and other indications that tourists had found the spot.In Thompson, Connecticut, town officials have worked for the last several years to improve access to the southern New England tripoint, where Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts meet.Visitors can now hike or ride a bicycle down the stone-dust covered Airline Trail to a hiking trail created by the town that leads to the tripoint.
