Climate change conference in Canada - Engineering Institute of Canada
Duane Pendergast, January 18, 2008

Dear Colleagues,

I'm participating in the organization of a conference which I think provides many opportunities for you to bring forth your ideas and research on terra preta. I've attached the Call for Papers. This is the second conference on climate change hosted by the Engineering Institute of Canada. The overall scope of the first one is still posted on the Internet.

As chair of the policy track for the predecessor conference, I did bring the use of charcoal in soil to the attention of participants in one of the best attended sessions.

My presentation there, with notes, is at:
Energy, the Carbon Cycle, and Enduring Greenhouse Gas Management

It is based on my related paper which is linked from the terra preta website.
