“Capturing Carbon in the Soil and Climate Change”
On Wednesday, April 27 at 6 pm David Parsons, former owner of REAL Compost and current member of the Monroe County Environmental Quality and Sustainability Commission, will present a talk entitled “Capturing Carbon in the Soil and Climate Change”. This presentation will look at the broad impact of terrestrial carbon sequestration in geological time and then focus on the use of carbon sequestration in soils as a means to reduce the impact and increase adaptation to our current challenge of climate change.The presentation will include practical examples of successful projects for capturing carbon in the soil and discuss the impact of enriching the soil. We will also look at ways we can increase carbon capture locally and nationally through day-to-day habits and through policy.
