What’s Dirt Got to Do With It?  Agriculture and Climate Change
The relationship between agriculture and climate change is complicated. Historically food production has been a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, and yet climate change has and will continue to profoundly impact our ability to produce food. At the same time, new approaches offer hope that agriculture can contribute to climate change solutions. Join our panel of experts (soil scientist Doug Collins, PhD, geologist David Montgomery PhD, farmer and lecturer Beth Wheat, PhD) for Climate Science on Tap as we discuss this fascinating and critically important topic. Meet the scientists! Listen to a riveting presentation! Engage in a Q & A about their work! If you eat food and care about climate change, then this Climate Science on Tap is for you!
