I wanted to share two recent radio stories relating to coastal blue carbon and a web resource.
On December 6 and 7, NPR aired a two-part story about California's climate law and "carbon farming" in the Sacramento - San Joaquin River Delta. Click here for the story.
On November 29, the Diane Rehm interviewed Kennedy Warne, a New Zealand marine biologist, about the loss of mangroves to shrimp farming. Coastal blue carbon is being proposed as an option to protect remaining mangroves. Dr. Warne has a new book out, “Let Them Eat Shrimp: The Tragic Disappearance of the Rainforests of the Sea.” Click here for the interview.
NOAA has launched a blue carbon web site describing NOAA's efforts - http://www.habitat.noaa.gov/noaabluecarbonefforts.html.
I hope you can make use of these new resources.
