Achievable Steps to Reverse Global Warming with the Power of Nature – If burning fossil fuels stopped tomorrow, the planet would still face catastrophic climate change. Measures to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and other measures to cool the planet are critical. This conference will lay out a broad vision to achieve this through accelerating the restoration of ecosystems, building healthy soils and harnessing water cycles. Specific actions will be highlighted that also provide co-benefits and cost-savings for farmers and food consumers, as well as improving water quality in urban, suburban and rural settings.
