Adam Chambers

  • 2017 — Symposium Speaker

Scientist Adam Chambers splits his time between Portland, Oregon, and Telluride, Colorado. In Telluride, he works with the Pinhead Climate Institute to educate young scientists and implement town-level climate actions that also encourage rural economic development. Over the past two decades, his project work has focused on the applied sciences and reducing atmospheric pollutants (air pollutants and greenhouse gases). Chambers works to implement conservation measures on managed agricultural lands that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance carbon sequestration, providing an emerging carbon market opportunity for U.S. landowners and agricultural producers. Chambers received a bachelor’s degree from Murray State University in Kentucky, Master of Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and doctorate from the Technical University of Vienna, Austria.
