Forests and Carbon: Todd Ontl from Northern Institue of of Applied Climate Science

Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science

This we began a new series on KAXE/KBXE's Tuesday Morning Show. Like our conversations about bird decline, Mark Jacobs has produced these segments for us - he's a retired land commissioner from Aitkin County. The conversations take an in-depth look at natural resource based issues important to our region; a discussion of problems but also creative solutions.

With our new focus of Forests and Carbon Mark introduced us to Todd Ontl. Todd coordinates the forest managment outreach efforts in the New England region to integrate climate change considerations into forest management. Todd had already met John Latimer, as they both have worked for the Spruce Project in Marcell through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
