Jonathan Carter of Ban clear-cutting last week criticized Gov. King, the timber
Jonathan Carter of Ban clear-cutting last week criticized Gov. King, the timber and paper industries and the press corps for failing to report the truth about the November referendum on clear-cutting. Carter said that the referendum's opponents are using old data and flawed methodology to distort information about the health of the state's forests, and discussed King's public relation skills and how they figure in the current debate. Carter released a study criticizing the methods used by the State Planning Office in calculating the economic effects of the referendum. Charles Gadzik of the Maine Forest Service defended using 1982 data in the study, saying the 1995 data wasn't available in final form. Details.
