Soil Carbon Sequestration: What is it, and could it actually work?
Watch the Webinar
You’ve heard the rumours – that we might be able to sequester carbon emissions in soil and thereby reduce our GHG emissions. It’s a big idea, one tossed around by scientists and politicians as a solution for emissions reduction from time to time.
But it’s also an incredibly complex idea. It’s much harder to measure the impact than say counting the reduction in litres of gasoline purchased, and the implementation has major ramifications on what we can do with our agricultural land. There is tremendous potential to the idea of sequestering carbon emissions in soil, but implementing such a scheme would also be tremendously difficult to do. Join The School of Public Policy for this backgrounder presentation on soil carbon storage; what exactly is it, how does it change what we can do with the land and what is the potential to help Canada reduce its agricultural GHG emissions?
