Sutton-Grier Quoted in Yale Article on Mangroves and Blue Carbon

ESSIC assistant research scientist Ariana Sutton-Grier was quoted in a recent Yale Environment 360 article about international blue carbon projects. The article focuses on increasing blue carbon projects in coastal areas while preserving local necessities.  Sutton-Grier explained that carbon is priced differently across the world in terms of those nations who have placed value on it; less than $1 per ton in Mexico, but $137 per ton in Sweden.  Sutton-Grier noted that higher prices for carbon could be a “game changer” in the U.S., where coastal restoration efforts are sorely needed, but costly.
