A recent New York Times opinion claims that “Focusing on trees as the big solution to climate change is a dangerous diversion.” True? False? Somewhere in between?
Roundtable panelists will debate the relative utility and disutility of tree planting, forest restoration, and forest conservation as solutions to global climate change. Further, panelists will discuss the contributions of individual and collective levels of behavioral changes to addressing climate change.
