CEREO April 2021

WSU colleagues working on environmental, agricultural, and land management issues-

You are invited to a meeting this Thursday, April 22nd, at 3:00 PM, to discuss the USDA’s Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry Strategy (Zoom link copied below, and attached as an Outlook item).  What we are aiming for is a set of answers to the questions posed by the USDA in the following document:

Federal Register :: Notice of Request for Public Comment on the Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad

These questions span agriculture, forestry, biomass/biomass engineering, and environmental justice.   I welcome your written comments also, especially if you cannot attend the meeting, which I am happy to summarize in a response document to the USDA (due date is April 30th).  The USDA is not looking for a lengthy document (2-3 pages maximum).
