Two Contrasting Views Of Our Energy Future

Two Contrasting Views Of Our Energy Future (via Planetsave)

The issue of where we will get our energy from in the coming decades is becoming ever more urgent. CO2 is accumulating in the atmosphere at alarming rates, and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently stated that the majority of known…

    Dear Ken,

    May I add some Good Soil Carbon news.

    My vision for a “Soil Carbon Age” of reverse Agricultural-Geo-Engineering.

    Over the last several years I have been briefing both secretary Vilsack & Jackson on the
    developments of the Biochar platform for biofuels, soils and health. Sec. Vilsack sent me a letter of thanks, a real snail mail letter, four paragraphs, reiterating each of my points.

    In a nutshell, this thermal conversion technology provides a tool to
    manage energy and agriculture while simultaneously dealing with
    ecological cost, inefficiency and waste.

    For a complete review of the
    current science & industry applications of Biochar please see my
    2014 Soil Science Society of America Biochar presentation.
    How thermal conversion technologies can integrate and optimize the
    recycling of valuable nutrients while providing energy and building soil
    carbon, I believe it brings together both sides of climate beliefs.
    A reconciling of both Gods’ and mans’ controlling hands.

    Yes, every process needs energy but if we produce energy in the same way from coal and petroleum then the Earth become a balloon of dangerous gases. It is the right time to start making electricity from renewable sources to save our Earth.
