Forests and Carbon: Natural Climate Solutions for MN with Nature Conservancy's Meredith Cornett
Today we talked with Meredith Cornett of the Nature Conservancy about Natural Climate Solutions. She is the Climate Change Director for Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. She helped us understand how Natural Climate Solutions can make a difference - whether planting trees, responsible foreset management or clean energy.
In our conversation she mentioned the Reforestation Hub: which reminds us that There are up to 133 million acres of opportunity in the United States to restore forest cover for climate mitigation.
Reforesting these areas with approximately 68 billion trees could capture 333 million tonnes of CO2 per year, equivalent to removing 72 million cars from the road.
