Climate Change

Climate change presents perhaps the biggest threat to humans and the environment of our time.  Personal choice, institutional changes, and scientific innovation will help us to mitigate the impact of climate change.  We work to inform each level of this front by researching the connection between climate and diet, trends in the energy sector, and ecosystem management strategies that can contribute to carbon sequestration.
