Webinar: Greenhouse Gas Roundup — Part II: Agriculture

Apr 14 2010 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

If you're like many Albertans, you're probably asking yourself some pretty important questions about climate change.  The most overdue questions may be about soil not oil. For example:

  • How can agricultural producers participate in the carbon market?
  • Will international climate change agreements influence land use activities?
  • Could more land users be regulated for emissions reduction as seen in the energy sector?

Whether you're a producer, a regulated emitter, or just a concerned citizen, you will find value in this second installment of Greenhouse Gas Roundup — a three-part webinar series led by ELC Staff Counsel Adam Driedzic. No legal training is required and there are no dumb questions. Read more about Webinar: Greenhouse Gas Roundup — Part II: Agriculture
