  1. We have 32 different sessions planned for the North American Biochar Symposium. Only two were really affected by the government shut down as they were being hosted by the USDA and the US Forestry Service. We have over 230 people currently registered to come and only a handful have backed out because of this, so describing it as ‘potentially threatening’ seems like a bit of an over-reaction.
