Perspective: Scientists, Truth, and the Media: A Clearcut Issue
Abstract:A few years ago I met a woman from Maine who held a clearly articulated position on the clearcutting referendum in her state. I liked her, although I dis-agreed with her position that the practice should be banned from Maine's woods. She obviously felt deeply about forests. I could appreciate this, because I share this connection, as I believe most foresters do.
