Time to Rethink Nature-Based Solutions?
What, actually, are we talking about when we refer to nature-based climate solutions? NBS references a large category of climate change mitigation options based on preserving, restoring, or expanding biological stores of terrestrial or oceanic carbon. Protecting tropical rainforests, rewilding temperate zones, restoring soil carbon on agricultural lands, and sinking seaweed into the ocean are all examples of NBS options.
Is it time to rethink these solutions? In this piece, Mark Trexler covers this question and many more.
