Baker Institute-led group to develop nationwide protocol for storing carbon

The institute has initiated a working group to develop a U.S. protocol for paying ranchers and farmers to store carbon in their soil. The current system for voluntary carbon transactions is broken and needs to be fixed, group founders said.

The group is co-led by Baker Institute Rice Faculty Scholar Jim Blackburn and Center for Energy Studies Senior Director Ken Medlock.
