Carbon Sequestration Beyond Tree Leaves
When we talk about biochar, usually trees are considered as a usual candidate for production. However, even the fastest-growing tree needs at least 10 years to get to a decent size; among other things, this this is the reason I strongly oppose tree cutting, regardless of the purpose, except when it is absolutely necessary. Instead, using tree leaves would be much more fitting (at least temporary), as they have [Read more ...]
How much electricity do spam emails waste?
SPAM emails. Everyone with an e-mail box gets them. They are quite annoying, but that is not all: they waste huge amounts of energy. How much energy is wasted? According to anti-virus software specialist McAfee: “More than 80% of the world's email traffic is now spam, and the transmission and receipt of unwanted email gobbles up 33 TWh of electricity a year”, which is the equivalent of the electricity used by 2.7 million US homes, if we take [Read more ...]
Carbon Sequestration by Leaves - Part 2
Note: If you have not read Part 1 it is strongly advised to read that first. There are a few misunderstandings about this method I would like to clarify: why, how, cost efficiency, feasibility, etc. I have a tendency to forget to explain things, assuming that people know them already or that my previous writing [Read more ...]
Carbon Sequestration by Leaves and Dead Plants Carbonisation
To prevent the catastrophic effects of global warming, as explained in the previous post “How much does switching to totally clean energy cost?” we need to use two general approaches: stopping future greenhouse gas emissions (which is best done by stopping the burning of fossil fuels as explained and significantly reducing meat & dairy consumption, as well reducing food waste) removing existing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, down to a stable level (around 350ppm). In many previous posts, I’ve already discussed how to tackle the first point. In this one, I will propose alternative ideas on how to deal with removing greenhouse gases from [Read more ...]
