      Public Comments on Draft SPCC:
      Chapter 8: Land Use/Land Cover Change

      excerpts:

      "Land cover change is not only a product of direct human disturbance and
      modification, but may arise as a consequence of climate change. The
      effects of changing seasonality of precipitation, temperature regimes, or
      disruption of hydrologic processes (e.g. the loss of perched soil water
      when permafrost melts) may have important effects on carbon uptake,
      biogenic emissions, dust, or other direct effects on the atmosphere in
      addition to potential changes in surface albedo."

      "While it is important to understand the past, it is not always a good
      guide to the future. Increased globalization is likely to drive land use
      change in ways not easily predictable from past history. One could infer
      from language in several places in this chapter that globilization is a
      key driver but it deserves more explicit recognition."
