Presented by: Dave Pacheco and Terri Martin, Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance
Passage of America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act can make a significant contribution to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the production of fossil fuels while simultaneously increasing carbon sequestration and storage in plants and animals. To address the climate crisis and stop the loss of nature and biodiversity, scientists worldwide agree that we must protect 30% of the earth’s lands and waters by the year 2030. Attendees of this session will understand, and be given a plan for action, on the outsized role that America's Red Rock Wilderness plays in mitigating global climate change and in reversing the loss of biodiversity by connecting diverse ecosystems across western North America.
