Trees are among our most effective weapons against climate change because of their ability to store carbon. From the Amazon to the Congo to California, the planet's forests are being destroyed.

Journalist Greg Dalton hosts the “Climate One” program at the Commonwealth Club of California.

His guests are:

  • Corey Brinkema of Minneapolis, president of the Forest Stewardship Council U.S.

  • Paul Paz y Miño, associate director of Amazon Watch.

  • Tara O’Shear, director of forest programs at Planet, a satellite imaging company.
