Event description

Description

Corey Brinkema
Greg Dalton
, Founder and Host, Climate One

Wildfires are breaking records as they spread through acres of Amazonian rainforest, northern California countryside, and even the Arctic tundra. This loss carries major implications for the global climate: the Amazon alone is responsible for removing 5% of the world’s 40 billion tons of CO2 emissions from the air each year. When forests burn, carbon storage is lost, along with biodiversity, indigenous culture, and more.

As climate change, and resource consumption drive higher rates of wildfires and deforestation each year, why should people care about the loss of trees they might never see? Join us with Corey Brinkema, president of the Forest Stewardship Council U.S., Tara O'Shea, director of forest programs at Planet, and Paul Paz y Miño, associate director at Amazon Watch, for a conversation on the importance of faraway forests.

Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Taube Family Auditorium, San Francisco
Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. networking reception
