If you're suffering night sweats over global warming, the Northwest Biocarbon Initiative might just cool you down.

A panel of experts will present at Town Hall on the storage potential for biocarbon in the Puget Sound's agricultural, forested, and urban landscapes.

The discussion will focus on the use of biological carbon storage—biocarbon—to reduce climate disruption caused by human greenhouse-gas emissions.

Topics include creative ways to harness biological waste streams for economic and societal benefits, and how the urban environment can be modified to promote carbon uptake.

Biocarbon has the potential to solve some of the toughest issues facing cities: storm water filtration and reduction, urban cooling, flood protection, recreation and healthy food.

Patrick Mazza, research director at Climate Solutions, will moderate, with special guests from Washington State University and UW.

There will be a Q&A session following.
