Shaler interviewed by Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal interviewed Stephen Shaler, professor of sustainable materials and technology in the School of Forest Resources, in an article about the rising popularity of wooden skyscrapers. “If you look at the carbon impact of harvesting trees and turning them into buildings, it gives you a much better number than you get from concrete or steel. As long as you have sustainably managed forests — and we have that capacity — it is a clear winner on the carbon footprint,” Shaler said.
