ConservAmerica – Geoengineering a Solution to Climate Change, Exploring an Ocean-Based Approach

Join ConservAmerica on Thursday, February 3 at 11 AM ET for an online discussion on the potential of ocean-based geoengineering to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere.

In December 2021, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, Medicine (NASEM) released a report assessing the potential benefits of ocean-based carbon dioxide removal approaches and calling for more research to learn how these methods could help mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Please join ConservAmerica on Thursday, February 3 at 11 AM, for an online conversation with Russ George, an environmentalist, and eco-entrepreneur pioneering ocean fertilization, also known as ocean pasture restoration (OPR).

OPR provides a unique opportunity to sequester tens of millions of tons of blue carbon while simultaneously helping restore fisheries that have suffered from overharvesting. George will give a short presentation on how ocean pasture restoration works, the underlying science behind different ocean-based carbon dioxide removal approaches, and an overview of his 2012 Alaska project, followed by Q&A.
