Beyond Emissions Reductions: Carbon Capture Strategies, a Deeper Dive




Lecture Series 2016: Changes Challenges and Choices

Beyond Emissions Reductions: Carbon Capture Strategies, a Deeper Dive


Photosynthesis: An Agent for Sequestration of Carbon in the Atmosphere

On Saturday, January 23rd, Marin Carbon Project co-founder and agro-ecologist Dr. Jeffrey Creque, and Carbon Cycle Institute Policy Director Torri Estrada, will talk about “boots on the ground” sequestering carbon on farm and public land, their work through Resource Conservation Districts around the State, the Governor’s “Healthy Soils Initiative,” and other policy advances in supporting use of photosynthesis to reduce carbon in the atmosphere.

Their remarks will be followed by presentations by Rebecca Burges, Executive Director of the Fibershed Project, and Kimberly Sheibly, Marin Sanitary Service’s Municipal Contracts and Communications Manager. Rebecca’s work demonstrates how we can restore the planet’s resource base while meeting our needs for food, fuel, fiber and flora. Kimberly will describe efforts to convert customers to recycling food and other organic waste so it becomes part of the solution rather than going into landfill, where it contributes to greenhouse gas emissions.

Bio-filtering islands launched during Bioneers ConferenceAlex helped install floating island Biofilters at the Marin County Civic Center lagoon:
 

The hands-on activity at the Bioneers Conference was the culmination of what started out as a class  project for the Environmental Forum of Marin in 2014. Alex and his Master Class 41 classmates Aurora Mahassine and Dan Monte together with over 100 volunteers planted and launched two floating islands in the Civic Center lagoon.

Alex is extremely grateful for everyone who was part of the team that made this project a reality, including:

Gallinas Watershed Council

Environmental Forum of Marin

Marin County Supervisor Damon Connolly & Aide Chris Callaway

Marin County Dept of Public Works (Liz Lewis and Laurie Williams)

Marin School of Environmental Leadership LEAD students (Elly, Sophie, Ben Cole, Evan, and Max)

MarinLink

Santa Venetia Neighborhood Association

It would not have been possible without financial and in-kind support from:

The Watershed Nursery

Embassy Suites Hotel

Autodesk

Last but not least, a big thanks to all who contributed to the fundraiser on Indiegogo:
