Restoring Ecosystems to Reverse Global Warming
More of our man-made carbon emissions to date have come from land mismanagement and the resulting loss of soil carbon than from burning fossil fuels. The good news is that we know how to remove that atmospheric carbon and store it back into the soils where it belongs, by harnessing the power of nature.
Restoring Ecosystems to Reverse Global Warming is a 3-day conference with the goal to bring the power of biology front and center in the climate conversation. We are bringing together a stellar roster of speakers -- scientists, land managers and activists -- and participants from around the world to learn from one another and to devise strategies to expand vast natural soil carbon sinks around the world.
