Summary

The Green Chainlooks at the past, present and future of forestry through interviews with environmentalists, loggers, scientists and others. Raw log exports, environmental devastation, making a living are topics discussed in this exploration of the problems facing our forests and the possible solutions. It's an emotional topic in a province that has launched such organizations as Greenpeace, the Sea Shepherd Society, ForestEthics and the Raging Grannies but whose economy-and many communities themselves-has been fuelled largely by forests. Both the logging industry and the environmental movement are facing unprecedented challenges and the world is watching to see how BC responds. Mark discusses the topic with 22 eloquent, knowledgeable and passionate people, including: . ForestEthics and PowerUp founder Tzeporah Berman. Environmentalist Severn Cullis-Suzuki. Author John Vaillant (The Golden Spruce) . Former Greenpeace executive and Greenspirit founder Dr. Patrick Moore; . Poet laureate and former logger George Bowering;. Forest Products Association of Canada president and CEO Avrim Lazar; . Union spokesman Wade Fisher. Documentary filmmaker Velcrow Ripper ("Fierce Light")
