Podcast: Can Kelp Forests Capture a Billion Tonnes of Carbon?

In the latest episode of the ClimateGenn Podcast, Dr. Shaun Fitzgerald OBE, in conversation with Nick Breeze, highlights the important modelling work to assess the carbon sequestration potential of cultivated kelp forests at a global scale. In this episode, he also discusses new research to build resilient and scaleable kelp growing platforms, asking the key question: can kelp forests capture and store a billion tonnes of carbon?

KFF is helping to answer this question by working together on a carbon sequestration pathway model with John Taylor of University of Cambridge and Centre for Climate Repair at Cambridge.
