Courtney white intro

  1. 1. The Carbon Ranch: Using Food and Stewardship To Build Soil and Fight Climate Change
  2. 2. THE QUIVIRA COALITION
  3. 3. Carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere in parts-per-million
  4. 4. Dr. Hansen proposed an answer: “cut off the largest source of these emissions – coal – and allow CO2 to drop back down to 350 ppm through agricultural and forestry practices that increase carbon storage in trees and soil.” Hansen specifically says that a 50 ppm drawdown via forestry and agricultural practices is quite plausible.
  5. 5. Thank You
