Thanks to Hugg for referring the article.
It would appear that forest-fires no longer contribute to global warming, using the logic of Canadian government scientists. Afraid that the occurrence of forest fires from now until 2012 will prevent us from reaching our goals (versus, let's say actual policies), they have decided to completely omit the role of forests in our CO2 levels. Oh- except for the harvesting and replanting of trees because that actually helps reduce CO2 levels.

Now i am hopeful that we can actually meet our Kyoto goals. A simple re-tooling of the calculations seems more effective than policy that would destroy our economy. Why should we then count the emissions of the Alberta oil fields, i mean, we export most of it the U.S! We should also omit emissions from essential automobile trips like school, doctors appointments and Ikea.
