Southern Oregon Climate Action Now (SOCAN) was formed in 2012. Since then, through legislative testimony, letters to the editor, presentations and courses, and other public educational efforts, SOCAN has been encouraging rural Oregonians, including foresters and farmers, to help mitigate global warming. We can achieve this by adopting practices that sequester or capture atmospheric carbon dioxide and put it into the vegetation and soil as stable, long term organic matter.
Although SOCAN is largely a volunteer effort, these activities incur considerable expense. This fundraiser will help the nonprofit SOCAN continue to educate the public and our representatives on the latest developments in climate research, including actions available for natural and working lands to optimize atmospheric carbon capture.
SOCAN Co-founder and co-facilitator Alan Journet recently noted: “Let’s put Oregon’s 30 million acres of forested and agricultural lands to work to help mitigate global warming; we need to return the atmospheric carbon dioxide back into these systems as vegetation and soil organic matter. We will likely not achieve our needed greenhouse gas reduction goals without taking such actions.”
