Farming to Clean the Air and Help With the Energy Crunch

Can farming and forestry help clean the air and ease the energy crunch? A conference hosted by the California Resource Conservation and Development Association (CRC&DAC;) on March 28-29 will discuss the technical and economic potential for such scenarios. The conference will be held at the Capital Plaza Holiday Inn at 300 J St., Sacramento.

"Increasingly, international scientists and policy experts believe that there is a key and profitable role for the world's farmers, ranchers, and timber managers to remove atmospheric carbon by 'tying it up' in vegetation and soil," says James Vancura, conference organizer. Vancura says that conference sessions will explore the impacts and benefits of carbon sequestration, banking, and measurement as they affect agricultural and timber producers. The conference will also address emerging opportunities to convert agricultural organic waste into bio-energy, such as wheatstraw into ethanol, and manure into biogas. Workshops will introduce the technical application of these clean energy projects and present draft policy initiatives to accelerate their development.

Keynote speakers include Secretary Mary Nichols of the California Resources Department, international environmentalist and Ford Foundation Fellow, Dr. Patrick Moore, and plasma physicist/author, John Brandenburg. Secretary Nichols will discuss the potential for agriculture to be used as a solution to global climate change. Dr. Moore and John Brandenburg will address some of the latest carbon management and sequestration technologies.

Conference sponsors include the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, the California Air Resources Board, the US Department of Energy, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the Klamath National Forest, and the Western Regional Biomass Energy Program. To register for this conference call CRC&DAC; at 530-397-7463 or email orecal@cot.net. Reduced rates are available for registration before March 16, 2001.
