The current global climate disruption requires us to expand our thinking beyond greenhouse gases. As recent reports suggest, biodiversity is a critical factor, as ecological destruction exceeds the impacts of burning fossil fuels. This talk will discuss nature-based solutions as far more powerful than the portfolio of emissions reductions. Examples will be discussed to illustrate regeneration of habitats, the most hopeful and practical path to restoring a healthful and bountiful biosphere.
