What is carbon sequestration? It's a natural process that captures and stores atmospheric carbon dioxide in our trees, plants, and soil. Terrestrial carbon storage is a vital ecosystem service for our planet that naturally results from the interactions between plants, atmosphere and soils. Restoration Forester, Rick Herson, stands out from other Oregon foresters because he is actively contributing to bigger stores of carbon over time. The Oregon DEQ's Climate Protection Program must support and incentivize projects like this while holding big polluters accountable for their industrial emissions and environmental impacts. Please join us in sending comments to the DEQ before 10/4 urging them to stregthen Oregon's Climate Protection Program and support carbon sequesteration projects!Learn more here: www.beyondtoxics.org/climate-protection-program/ ...
