Its peat bogs absorb carbon dioxide. Veteran journalist and author Daniel Gawthrop reveals the array of wildlife, plants and peoples of the boreal forest. He exposes the logging, mining, oil and gas extraction, and manufacturing that are devastating the forest from Canada to Siberia and turning it from the world’s largest absorber of carbon dioxide into a producer of carbon dioxide.

Boreal forests have been described as the earth's northern lungs. Daniel Gawthrop is the author of Vanishing Halo: Saving the Boreal Forest (Greystone/David Suzuki Foundation). A mixed evergreen mantle of coniferous and broad-leaf trees including jackpine, spruce, aspen, balsam fir, poplar and birch, the Canadian boreal forest and its wetlands stretch from the rocky Newfoundland coast to the mountain valleys of northern BC and the Yukon. Its stands aren't as towering as the sexier temperate and tropical rainforests to the south, nor as dense as Russia's Siberian taiga forests immortalized in Boris Pasternak's Doctor Zhivago.

Veteran journalist and author Daniel Gawthrop reveals the array of wildlife, plants and peoples of the boreal forest. He exposes the logging, mining, oil and gas extraction, and manufacturing that are devastating the forest from Canada to Siberia and turning it from the world's largest absorber of carbon dioxide into a producer of carbon dioxide.As dire as the situation is, it is not too late. Gawthrop introduces the strategies that are driving sustainable development. As well, he appraises the most promising solutions to date, including comanagement - a combination of traditional knowledge and modern science - and ecosystem-based forest use, which emphasizes small-scale forestry.
