Episode 31 – How Forests Can Help Stop Climate Change

Conserving and restoring forests can help fight climate change in two ways: cutting down forests is the second largest source of CO2 emissions (after fossil fuels), and because healthy forests can absorb and sequester massive amounts of carbon. Listen as Laurie Wayburn from the Pacific Forest Trust talks about how saving forests is good for humans and good for the planet. A special thanks to the Coalition of Oregon Land Trusts for their help with this event.  

This was recorded at the talk A Path in the Woods: How Forests Can Help Stop Climate Change at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland in November 2019.

Thanks to Graham Tully for sound production.

As always, a final thanks to Jonathan Coulton for the use of his song Mandelbrot Set as our theme music.
