This presentation, subtitled, “Capturing Carbon in Northwest Cities, Farms, and Forests,” addresses the Northwest Biocarbon Initiative and the biocarbon storage potential in our agricultural, urban, and forested landscapes. The discussion, featuring Dr. Chad Kruger, director of WSU’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture & Natural Resources, and Professor Nancy Rottle, of the UW’s Landscape Architecture Department, focuses on the use of biological carbon storage—biocarbon—to reduce climate disruption caused by human greenhouse-gas emissions, and the other benefits it can provide to our economy and environment. Following the presentation, Patrick Mazza, research director at Climate Solutions, moderates an audience Q&A and a session of short talks from people representing businesses, governments, or NGOs that are working on biocarbon projects. Presented by the Sustainable Path Foundation in partnership with Climate Solutions.
