Selected recent publications of Dr. William R. Moomaw

Intact Forests in the United States: Proforestation Mitigates Climate Change and Serves the Greatest Good by Professor Moomaw. Frontiers in Forests and Global Change, 6/11/19.

World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency.”This news article from Science Daily points to the scholarly article authored by Professor Moomaw with William J. Ripple, Christopher Wolf, Thomas M. Newsome, and Phoebe Barnard in the January 2020 issue of BioScience. (Volume 70, Issue 1, pp. 8–12, https://doi.org/10.1093/biosci/biz088).

Wetlands in a Changing Climate: Science, Policy and Management,” Wetlands 38, 183–205 (2018) by Moomaw, W.R., Chmura, G.L., Davies, G.T. et al. (doi.org/10.1007/s13157-018-1023-8)

Wetlands moderate climate change, and recent research cited here demonstrates that wetlands actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere. But “wetland scientists, ecosystem managers and natural resource policy-makers are unaware of the important C storage role of wetlands,” and “many climate scientists, as well as national and international policy makers, undervalue the role that wetland management might play.”
