FSC is a Fraud

From a chat list:
FSC is a fraud. Unreliable at best, false and fraudulent at worst. Don’t take my word for it–just ask some of the FSC-certified timber corporations–Tembec, Precious Woods, et al. Go to the Rainforest Foundation UK web site. There are a host of environmental non-profits fighting the FSC–even Rainforest Action Network, who helped found them, is backing off in disgust. The original vision was a way to help indigenous and community-run small-time ops; then the WWF stepped in and started certifying big industrial ops, some who offered promises of future reforms and some who didn’t even bother to do that…
