Wed, Nov 14, 2018 at 7pm

This event has passed.

Aggressive action on climate change requires reducing carbon emissions while increasing carbon sequestration, and we won’t be successful without technology, creativity and innovation! The next enthralling episode in the Climate Science on Tap series highlights these cutting-edge efforts. Our panelists will discuss techniques for locking carbon up in soils, the development of a new marketplace for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and the surprising role of blockchain (the technology behind cryptocurrency) in the process. Come for the thought-provoking presentation and Q&A, stay for the delicious beer and inspiring conversation. You won’t leave disappointed!
