    won't come remotely close to saving the world.

    •  Not the biomass, the charcoal (4+ / 0-)

      or that's the suggestion anyhow.

      there's nowhere NEAR enough biomass to meet all our energy needs. I believe Sweden produces, like, 5% of its electricity needs with biomass, and they have to import wood to do even that.

      The thing in question, though, is the charcoal, removing carbon from the system for thousands of years.

      Times, hard. People, starving. Foodbanks, empty. Bring them food, or donate now. (I'm on Twitter now)
