   - **Removal of 100 Gigatons of carbon from the atmosphere** through ecologically sound projects around the globe that harness the soil’s ability to sequester carbon. (Since this is a world-wide number, Oregon'​s share would likely be in the 0.1 to 0.2 Gigaton range. ​ I suggest a range here, because we have about 0.1% of the world'​s current emission rate -- but we have a forest that should be one of the most dense sequesterers of carbon in the world.  ​   - **Removal of 100 Gigatons of carbon from the atmosphere** through ecologically sound projects around the globe that harness the soil’s ability to sequester carbon.
