We have faced trials and danger, threats to our world and our way of life. And yet, we persevere. We are the Horde. We will not let anything break our spirits!"

What the hell are they using it for?
To stay warm? you can burn coal, oil or even dung for that. Hell, get some goblins and electrify the city.
To build? You can do that with stone and adobe, and such, you didn't see American settlers or plains indians logging tons of trees, and we saw the Mag'har building clay buildings, they don't need MASSIVE amounts of lumber, they could get it from the Tauren (who carve giant totems anyway they've got lumber to spare and live just fine in tents seriously)
We never even see the Lumber USED for anything.
Blizz's storytelling is bunk.

2. The forsaken wouldn't get attacked they live in the bloody eastern kingdoms, unless the orcs asked them there's no reason they'd be over there.
It was stated that Sylvanas would be integral to the ousting of Garrosh's corruption. Just a hunch, Sylvanas will come to Pandaria, point out his corruption, thus leading to the events of Siege of Orgrimmar. IF Lor'themar were to become Warchief, I would guess that Sylvanas would be the first to suggest that as well, perhaps to hold something over Lor'themar's head (as she has been known to do, like in his short story) or simply to show support to have a supporter in a group of spiritual people that she doesn't exactly belong with.
But, as far as I see it, any leader in the Horde is entitled to be a candidate for Warchief, whether they want Garrosh's head personally or not. Lor'themar is only getting new lore and a new voice actor for badassity's sake, and I wouldn't expect Blizzard to actually make him Warchief in the end...just an integral part of what is going to happen when we take Garrosh down.
The sylvanas stuff was scrapped.
In there somewhere is all I know.
He doesn't say Sylvanas was "scrapped," just that it's hard to choose where to put focus, as they want anything happening in-game to have both gameplay and to fit into the overarching plot.
To me, the vibe he gives off is that they want to develop her storyline in Lordaeron and Gilneas, preferably from a worgen point-of-view, without having to drag the story away from the Eastern Kingdoms and tie it all into the Pandaria storyline. That makes it difficult to justify dealing with that plotline right now, while the plot is focused on Pandaria.
There have been hints in these interviews that the plot in 5.3 and beyond will involve returning to Azeroth proper and seeing how the war is playing out for the rest of the world.
In regards to the Tauren supplying it. Originally, it was the Bloodhoof clan that joined the Horde. They were nearly extinct and had no land.
Maybe they use it for food. It did somehow save Orgrimmar from famine.

At the end of the day we all know blizzard is just trolling and that thrall WILL regain his position as warchief
Why is anyone even trying to imagine a non-orc as warchief? Really, consider what your thinking for a moment. The head of the horde, the thing that started it all, the race that begun the horde, and the one that brought the concept of a warchief into the genre has, and always will be an orc.
On top of that, you are suggesting that the orcs will be lead by a non-orc character after the fall of Garrosh, seriously? Do you see any other race in warcraft that is lead by a none representation of there own race as its leader. Gnomes are lead by a gnome, undead are lead by an undead, worgen are lead by worgen, trolls are lead by a troll. What, you think blizzard are going to suddenly be controversial and make it that orcs are the ONLY race in wow that isn't lead by a racial leader who isn't one of there own?
And if lor'themar or any other faction leader in the horde did become the warchief, are you honestly suggesting that the character now has to be in command of the orcs, there own people and the horde in one go? Do you have any idea how contrived that sounds storywise? Do you think orcs will just bend over for an elf warchief, while he still tries to lead his own people.
Face reality please. Each Racial leader of each horde faction is focused on there own people and there own lands. Durotar is orcish land, orgirmmar is the orcish city, You cannot have a non-orc leading it.
Orcs are the main body of the horde just as humans are the main body of the alliance, all the other races is just flavor-text
