Why aren't we using more nature-based solutions to fight climate change?
“It really is time that governments stopped trying to find more ways to offset their fossil fuel emissions through, for example, protecting seagrass and mangroves in coastal areas,” says Bill Hare, chief executive officer of Climate Analytics. “They do need protection, but if that work is then used to offset emissions, then ultimately the resulting warming will kill them. We need a clear firewall between these two activities.”
