Dr. Brian von Herzen

Brian obtained his Ph.D. from Caltech where he received the prestigious Hertz Fellowship. His dissertation on global climate models demonstrated how changes in the Earth's orbit affect climate. Brian’s current vision is restoring Earth’s natural carbon cycles to regenerate food productivity, while balancing carbon. Over a decade ago Brian founded the Climate Foundation to find sustainable ways to balance carbon in soils and seas and ensure food security for ten billion people in the face of climate disruption. He led successful efforts to reverse coral bleaching in American Samoa, deploy a biochar reactor for Asia and North America and later to regenerate algae production through Marine Permaculture.

Brad recently launched Ocean-Climate Trust, an initiative focused on the ocean as a critical pathway to both reverse climate disruption and restore the ocean. The Ocean Climate Trust is working to build momentum for a new ocean-climate restoration agenda; to unlock new intellectual and financial investments in ocean-climate restoration; to source, develop and scale innovations that utilize the ocean’s capacity to capture and store carbon, and that can repair and restore critical components of the ocean-climate system.
