Go Farmers, F da Bears! Charlie Berens & Paul Gambill on Investing in Carbon Farming

Laugh with us as comedian Charlie Berens and "Crypto-for-Carbon" startup founder Paul Gambill explore how communication & investing with farmers could be the key to removing carbon from the sky and storing it in productive, profitable soil to benefit investors, farmers and the planet.

On this Summit Roundtable we discuss the ROI of converting a farm from conventional to regenerative ag, how there's an elegant solution to transfer wealth from large urban corporations to rural farmers, effective communications strategies to connect to farmers, and how we might solve political partisanship with a game of cornhole.

Featuring CEO of the Nori carbon marketplace Paul Gambill and emmy award winning journalist and comedian Charlie Berens.

Connect with Paul on www.nori.com with his podcast, blog, and more featuring farmers, scientists, founders, and even religion trying to figure out how to remove carbon from the skies.

Big urban companies can basically give a bridge loan to farmers that want to move from conventional to regenerative agriculture.

There's a huge supply shortage of carbon removal projects.

Regenerative agriculture vs conventional agriculture.
