Cool Green Science

Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges facing our planet today. As we race to solve the climate challenge with technology—innovating clean energy solutions that lessen our reliance on fossil fuels—we often overlook the fact that nature has worked as a carbon store for hundreds of millions of years. The way we manage our lands can either accelerate or slow the rate of climate change.
