Not Just Participation: The Rise of the Eco‐Precariat in the Green Economy

Benjamin Neimark, Sango Mahanty, Wolfram Dressler, Christina Hicks
2020 Antipode  
We use these examples to theorise the nature of labour in these frontier economies and put forward a framework for analysing the eco-precariat.  ...  This article examines the roles and vulnerabilities of these actors: the carbon counters, species identifiers, GIS mappers, tree planters and others operating in the shadows.  ...  Earlier versions of this work benefited from participants at the Political Ecology Network (POLLEN) 2018 Conference in Oslo on Eco-precariat labor and at feedback from the Political Ecology Research Group  ...

Innovative wood use can enable carbon-beneficial forest management in California

Bodie Cabiyo, Jeremy S. Fried, Brandon M. Collins, William Stewart, Jun Wong, Daniel L. Sanchez
2021 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
With increased demand for wood residues, forest health–oriented thinning could produce up to 7.3 million (M) oven-dry tonnes of forest residues per year, an eightfold increase over current levels.  ...  These treatments are often cost prohibitive, though, in part because of low demand for low-value wood "residues."  ...  Finally, workforce development initiatives could support the rapid scaling of forest treatments.  ...
