Addressing the climate crisis (getting to Net 0 by 2050) requires a two–pronged approach. Although the primary means is stopping climate pollution, it is also necessary to protect and expand natural carbon sequestration through the preservation of lowland conifer stands. These treed wetlands occur on mucky mineral or wet organic soils and include richly forested peatlands or bogs. Minnesota lowland conifer forests and peatlands sequester a huge amount of carbon, preventing carbon from entering the earth’s atmosphere and contributing to climate change. These lands are also crucial habitat for native plants and animals.
Message: I urge you to fight climate change by preserving Minnesota lowland forests and peatlands which sequester hundreds of thousands of tons of carbon. Please support HF2353 Lowland Carbon and Habitat Reserve (LowCaHR).
