Op-ed: How forest thinning waste could fund California wildfire prevention

Yesterday, CSG’s Director of Climate and Energy Policy, Sam Uden, had an op-ed published in CalMatters that describes how a forest products strategy could help reduce megafires in California. 

In partnership with Sierra Business Council, a lead organization that represents more than 3,000 businesses, local governments and NGOs in the Sierra Nevada, the op-ed is timed with key regulatory proceedings at state agencies and the start of the 2022-23 legislative session to encourage more meaningful and pragmatic policy at the forest-climate-energy nexus. 

The op-ed is tied to the broader portfolio of work CSG has been advancing on low-carbon fuels and carbon dioxide removal in California.
