Trump Administration Lifts Protections For Largest National Forest In US The Trump administration has officially eliminated federal protections for Alaska's Tongass National Forest, the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world. With the rollback of the Roadless Rule, nine million previously-protected acres are now open further to potential development. What does that mean for trees that have been storing carbon for centuries? For more on this story, check out the episode page. You can email the show at [email protected].
