IKEA Buys 11,000 Acres of U.S. Forest to Keep It From Being Developed
Quote:
Their latest move is a large purchase of 11,000 acres of forest in Georgia that looked like it would be lost to development.

To ensure it remains intact and working to suck up CO2 from the atmosphere, the forest was bought by IKEA as part of a strategy to reduce more carbon than it creates through its value chain.

Home to the valuable gopher tortoise, the working forest in the Altamaha Basin is now owned by the IKEA subsidiary, Ingka Group, which has worked with The Conservation Fund, a non-profit that has protected over 8-million acres of forests in the U.S. from fragmentation and development.

A working forest is one in which lumber is harvested and regrown—and it’s these forests which often suffer from being broken up into smaller segments and developed, something the Conservation Fund and Inka are ensuring will not happen by creating permanent easements that legally prevent the forest from ever being split up into smaller pieces.

And, these actions will, in turn, protect the gopher tortoise—a priority species for conservation.
Quote:
Ingka Group currently owns 616,000 acres of such forests in the U.S. and Europe, while privately choosing to ensure the highest international standards for good forest management. A spokesperson added that “no significant amount” of wood from the forests is currently used in Ikea products.

“Well-managed forests provide essential benefits, including clean water and important wildlife habitat, as well as mitigating climate change,” said Larry Selzer, President and CEO of The Conservation Fund.

Sure, it's probably hardly news and most of you probably hate them, but give The Eagles credit: after the passing of founder Glenn Frey they continue with the man's son, Deacon, which I think is really pretty cool: continuing the legacy. How many bands do that? Must be tough for the kid though, up there on the stage performing beside the ghost of his father, who surely casts a huge and long shadow.

What kind of fool would hate the Eagles? They have so many great songs. Plus they pulled off so many styles so effectively. They have the perfect definitive seventies sound.

Try winning more than 6 games next season. And check under the bed for Doug Pederson.

Emphasis on resentful. At least we finally ditched the runt of the Manning litter.

Who needs Eli when you've got a QB that's so fast that he trips over himself? Even Sonic would blush at this kind of speed.
