Webinar: Greenhouse Gas Roundup — Part II: Agriculture

Apr 14 2010 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm

If you're like many Albertans, you're probably asking yourself some pretty important questions about climate change.  The most overdue questions may be about soil not oil. For example:

  • Will international climate change agreements influence land use activities?
