Donald F. Boesch, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science – Ramping Up Land Conservation is Critical for Meeting Maryland’s Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions
Maryland’s Greenhouse Gas Reductions Act (GGRA) requires a 40% reduction in emissions by 2030. The draft plan includes questionable assumptions about carbon sequestration by forests and other natural lands and very modest objectives about increasing such sequestration. Even deeper emissions reductions will have to be achieved to achieve net-zero by 2050 and it is clear that much greater offsets through sequestration will be required. We will review the math and offer some proposals for substantial but realistic increases in carbon sequestration by forests and agricultural lands.
