"Carbon Farming" Vs. "Wild Carbon Picking"
"Carbon Farming" activity of growing
crops specifically for biofuels or for the purpose
of carbon sequestration. This usually means removing
the current ecosystem and replacing it with monoculture
which means loss of diversity. Most crops are also
usually intended as biofuels (carbon neutral).
"Wild Carbon Picking" is like berry picking or
apple picking where your are not harvesting the trees but
only the fruit. Leaves and Grasses are huge crops that can
be processed into biochar that has high water retention
properties to increase the quality of the poorest soils
increasing their productivity and value.
Carbon Credits for putting carbon back in the ground to
mitigate and remediate at the same time.
Biochar: Carbon Sequestration that Mitigates Drought
Biochar has several interesting properties:
Holds onto Water
• Increasing Harvests
• Growing Food in Deserts
(to feed billions more)
• Increases Food Security, Climate Affluence.
• Avoid loss via leaching into rivers, lakes
• Less Algal Blooms affecting the
quality of drinking Water (toxins).
• Blooms cause Dead Zones killing fish.
• Farmers: more Yield for their fertilizer investment.
Biochar's Role in Sequestration
Creating a whole new layer of taxable GDP and Wealth -
Bacteria produce 50-to-100 times more CO2 than Humans.
Making Biochar from biomass that would decay quickly, can avoid
emissions and store huge amounts of carbon.
Biochar is an amazing agricultural amendment that holds
water, minerals, increases yields, and even renders
semi-arid soil fertile reclaiming land from soil erosion.
