Some of the hottest topics moving through environmental, governmental, financial, and business circles these days are “Carbon Credits,” “Cap and Trade” and “Carbon Offsets. Those procedures are meant to offset smog, gross pollution from refineries, chemical plants, cement plants, rice burning and other major concerns that affect each of us.
Why is that important to the Intermountain Area? Because the owners of the miles and miles of timber that stretch in every direction in and around the Intermountain Area are or are likely to become major players in the California Cap and Trade program. Because this area survives because of the timber industry.
