Thanks to all the contributors to this string; some excellent information, commentary, and debate.
I am a bit disappointed not to have reached a century (of comments) but I guess there is still time!
What would have been interesting is some sort of contribution from the groups which have been trying to negotiate a solution through the “inter governmental agreement” process. I would have thought a string entitled “a forest solution” on a frequently read blog would have stimulated at least one comment from each of the parties involved. Actually I think that is not a good look for any of the groups involved.
Respectful, informed debate on a public forum surely could not sabotage the process of finding a solution, or am I wrong about this?
