Educational Briefing on Wednesday
Experts to Address Farmers Role in Managing Climate Change

WHO: Four experts in soil carbon research, farming, and economics will address the unique opportunity American land managers have to sequester soil carbon and mitigate climate change:

  • Dr. Chuck Rice, a professor at Kansas State University, will explain the mechanism behind soil carbon sequestration with an emphasis on agro-ecosystems.
  • Dr. Rattan Lal, Carbon Management & Sequestration Center Director, Ohio State University and Soil Science Society of America President, will focus his comments on the potential of terrestrial systems to sequester carbon.
  • Mr. Merle Holle, a no-till farmer from the 1st Congressional district of Kansas, will offer his experiences with soil carbon management, and highlight opportunities for farmers to participate in carbon trading.
  • Dr. Brent Sohngen, an agricultural economist at Ohio State University, will weigh the economic feasibility of adopting policies to encourage improved soil carbon management and carbon sequestration.

WHAT: Educational Lunch Briefing, Farming Carbon: American Opportunities to Manage Climate Change, sponsored by the House Soils Caucus, in conjunction with the Soil Science Society of America and the Council on Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics.

WHERE: Room B-369 of the Rayburn House Office Building, Washington DC

WHEN: Wednesday, May 30, 2007, Noon-1:15pm

WHY: Agricultural land in the U.S. has the capacity to sequester 650 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year, offsetting up to 11% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
