CIERP Founder and Fletcher School Professor Emeritus, Bill Moomaw, discussed how letting our trees grow, or ‘proforestation’ can effectively combat the climate emergency. Professor Moomaw spoke to an audience of over 80 people – students, faculty, community members – at the Cheryl A. Chase Center at Tufts University on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. Prof. Moomaw also delved into the various technological approaches that companies and policy makers have considered to combat the emergency, and briefly informed the crowd about his time at COP 25 in Madrid, Spain.
