The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

As the growing effects of climate change become clear — massive fires and floods, hotter summers, stronger hurricanes — it’s obvious that we urgently need to do something. Forest loss and degradation is globally the second largest source of CO2 emissions (after fossil fuels), but it’s the only emissions source that can reverse course and reabsorb that same CO2. Forest conservation and restoration management can sequester massive amounts of carbon and promote climate resiliency. At this Science on Tap, you will hear from Laurie Wayburn, Co-Founder and CEO of the Pacific Forest Trust, who will discuss the immediate imperative— and opportunity— for forest conservation and restoration here at home as a climate solution.
