I also appreciate you taking the time to meet with people, but I am disappointed in the information provided by VLCIA.
For example, you say:You are absolutely correct in stating that we provided you peer reviewed scientific literature proving that biomass plants are indeed carbon neutralExcuse me? What journal accepts a stack of powerpoint slides for peer review?
Maybe you mean it’s based on some journal article. Citation, please: journal, date, and page.
The only thing I can find in it that was peer-reviewed was a quote from an IPCC 2007 report, which asks for “a sustainable forest management strategy”. That’s what we don’t have; that stack of slides certainly isn’t it.
This is a response from me to Brad Lofton’s letter of 22 September 2010. I also refer to Leigh Touchton’s response of the same date.
