Late last week, I was interviewed by Aaron Joyce, News Director at WRCO in Richland Center (click logo for more on station). He was one of 600 residents in SW Wisconsin to receive a questionnaire about bioenergy and land use.

Christakis is a professor of sociology, medical sociology, and medicine at Harvard Univeristy and Medical School.
David Kittredge at UMass sent me the video link.
The Wisconsin Council on Forestry sent letters to the Wisconsin's congressional delegation in support of pending federal legislation entitled, the Silviculture Exemption Consistency Act (HR2541 and SB1369), which would continue the existing policy that forestry operations are non-point source pollution and that forestry best management practices are an appropriate policy tool for protecting water qualit
This week I am attending Sustainable Bioenergy Training Program for Extension Educators in Columbia, MO, along with several extension colleagues from Wisconsin as well as the North Central region. The hope that we will develop a comprehensive extension curriculum to support the bioenergy discussion in Wisconsin.

Senate Bill 161 passed unanimously out of the Senate Agriculture, Forestry, and Higher Education Committee on Thursday.
Further action or, at least, enactment, though, is unlikely in this legislative session. The session is supposed to end on March 15 and no action on the Assembly version of the bill is planned (at least at this point).
