HR County Commission To Hold Carbon Credit Project Hearing

The Hood River County Commission is planning to hold a public hearing on a proposed carbon credit project on the County Forest as soon as its next meeting in September.  Commissioners discussed the potential sale of carbon credits through The Climate Trust for about 90 minutes on Monday, including what would happen if a catastrophic event on County forestlands such as fire could impact such a deal, which would commit the County to continuing to manage forestlands in the manner they have been for the next 40 years.  Commissioner Les Perkins says the public should like that future commissions won’t be able to change practices that citizens have approved of.  Commissioner Arthur Babitz noted this is a complicated deal, and it will important to explain it to Hood River County citizens.
