Strategic Investments for Wildfire Preparedness

In the midst of a global pandemic, California is entering into wildfire season with reduced resources and higher risks, explained Michael Wara, Director of Stanford’s Climate and Energy Program at a recent event hosted by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. The panel explored how federal, state and local fire agencies can balance wildfire prevention and response under resource constraints.

Making Agriculture More Sustainable

Fertilizer manufacturing has caused global food production to grow exponentially in the past 100 years. However, the process used to manufacture ammonia, a main ingredient in fertilizers, consumes 2 percent of the world’s natural gas and energy, and emits 300 million metric tons of carbon dioxide every year. This project aims to develop a more sustainable approach that is also safer and more affordable.
