Climate Change

With abrupt climate changes approaching faster than predicted according to scientists, fast-action mitigation strategies are essential in order to delay climate tipping points. These fast-action strategies include reducing non-CO2 agents such as black carbon, methane, and tropospheric ozone; using the Montreal Protocol to phase down HFCs and to recover and destroy ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) in "banks" of existing equipment, foams, and stockpiles; and expanding bio-sequestration through biochar. IGSD is working to promote these strategies in both domestic and international policy.
