ALERT! Protest Ill-Conceived Industrial Biochar Geoengineering
TAKE ACTION! Industrial scale "biochar" [search] is the latest dangerous geoengineering proposal (replacing now discredited ocean iron fertilization [search] as the flavor of the month) to save the Earth and humanity from climate change without personal sacrifice or social change. Biochar (charcoal) enthusiasts intend to burn biomass to produce and bury charcoal, in order to manipulate land use and the biosphere on a vast scale. As if the world's land, 25% of which is already becoming seriously degraded, does not have enough pressures from deforestation, industrial agriculture and sprawling human settlements. Charcoal proposals forestall sufficient climate change measures such as ending the use of coal, protecting and restoring old forests, and reforming industrial agriculture. Express concern on the matter to
leading scientists, industrialists and negotiators supporting the idea of burning ecosystems to save them.TAKE ACTION!
