|The Vanishing Face of Gaia - A Final Warning|
I have already ordered the book and can't wait until the 17th April until it arrives. RMan has "booked" it after me LOL
If you're as blown away as I am by the article and the You Tube clip (never mind the book) please - won't you share the info on your blogs. For, as Mr Lovelock says, "One procedure could turn back the clock on global warming. And that is burying carbon. All you have to do is to get every farmer everywhere to make a profit by turning all of his ag waste into char and burying it or dropping it into the sea - it doesn't matter which. Because char is not only resistant to atmospheric oxidation, it's non-bio-degradable too. So, it'll just stay there."
For more info check out these two links:
And, if like me, you're possibly confused as to how you're going to make your own biochar - take a look at this link. It would seem that all you need is a couple of 44 gallon drums :) I've got at least one of those already. The only thing I am going to do differently, is I'm going to place a lid on the drum, to prevent oxygen fueling the fire. Because, the way I understand it, biochar is produced in an oxygen deprived environment, in order to retain the carbon within the char and not release it into the atmosphere. Similar to what is described on this or this link. Or for other ideas this is the link.
