The potential role of forests in storing carbon and thus buffering climate change has become a hot topic among those seeking to preserve Northwest forests.  The Sightline Institute, a Washington-based think tank devoted to sustainability and the green economy, has been doing research on this, and on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 6 p.m., will offer a presentation on the results.  Their webinar “Farms and Forests: Today and Tomorrow” is free and open to all.

Their description of the event:

“In recent months, Sightline's Farms & Forests program has been digging deep into the economics, policy, and politics of forest carbon sequestration. On Oct 19th we're hosting an online conversation to update you on our efforts! In addition to sharing our strategy, what progress we’ve made, and where we’re headed next, Sightline's lead Farms & Forests researcher Kate Anderson will also fill you in on the two main forest health and carbon projects we’ve tackled this year: extending harvest rotations and shifting wildfire policy. She'll explain what we found, what it means, and what we can do about it."
