Webinar: Agricultural Solutions to Climate Change

Is carbon the problem or the solution?

Field innovations and progressive policies can transform agriculture from a greenhouse gas emitter to a climate change solution. Join two leaders in the field to learn more in this free webinar.

Join us for the latest in the Bioneers webinar series: Agricultural Solutions to Climate Change with John Wick of the Marin Carbon Project and Renata Brillinger of the California Climate and Agriculture Network. Hosted by Arty Mangan, Bioneers Restorative Food Systems Director.

More About This Webinar

Industrial agriculture is a significant contributor of greenhouse gas emissions: carbon dioxide from fuel for equipment and fossil fuel fertilizers, nitrous oxide from the overuse of nitrogen fertilizer and methane from livestock.

Climate-friendly agricultural practices in the field can mitigate climate change while enhancing soil fertility. We need policies to create a framework and incentives to not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but to also play a role in removing carbon from the atmosphere.

So is carbon the problem or the solution?

““We are losing our carbon. It’s going up. Venus is a dead carcass of a planet. All its carbon went out. We are headed there. We will go to a place where this planet is a rock, unable to support life, and we are heading there faster than people can comprehend.”  – John Wick

Come learn about exciting advancements in climate-friendly farming with innovative rancher John Wick, who is proving the power of soil as a carbon sink, and Renata Brillinger, whose organization CalCAN has created a blueprint for a California program on agriculture and climate.

Both Renata and John will be at the 2015 Bioneers Conference this October, and this webinar will be a great lead-in to their sessions. We’ll also be offering a special conference registration price for webinar attendees.

This webinar is free to the public, but space is limited, so reserve your spot today and share this page with friends and colleagues!
