Bioneers 2024 Conference

Suzanne Simard – Dealing with Backlash Against Nature-Based Solutions to Climate Change

Introduction by J.P. Harpignies, Bioneers Senior Producer

For decades, scientists have warned about the consequences of deforestation and fossil fuel burning that have led to today’s climate and biodiversity crises.  They have also conducted careful research that has helped inform development of nature-based solutions.  Despite the urgency of the interdependent crises and the agency we have in helping address them, there abound efforts to discredit peer-reviewed climate change science. Dr. Simard’s talk will delve into recent backlash she has experienced over her science that informs climate solutions for the forests of western North America.
