Healthy Water Cycles and the Soil Carbon Sponge: New Climate Solutions

Biodiversity for a Livable Climate welcomes Walter Jehne, Director of Healthy Soils Australia, who will describe how quickly, affordably and naturally we can reverse global warming and its effects by working with the water cycle and the soil sponge.

Walter Jehne is an internationally-recognized Australian climate scientist and soil microbiologist, one of the early researchers on glomalin, mycorrhizal fungi, and root ecology. He worked for three decades at CSIRO – the Australian government’s scientific research organization, with the UN and with NGOs to create global change in food systems and climate response. Jehne is a leader in the grassroots movement to educate farmers, industry and policymakers on the crucial role of soil ecosystems in global climate change. In 2017, he was part of an invitation only UN FAO conference in Paris looking at bringing soil into the next IPCC report.
