It’s as if the worst fear of an environmentalist had come true. Industry could produce carbon dioxide and then offset it by sequestering carbon in biochar. “147 small environmental and human rights organizations, [called] the growing support for biochar a "dangerous new false solution to climate change." “
Caught in a dilemma where industry can sequester carbon with an inexpensive process has the environmental groups grasping for words. The environmental groups ”do not appear opposed to biochar outright but are clearly wary of polluters relying heavily on using biochar carbon offsets as a way to comply with carbon regulations.” I wonder why?
Other environmentalists give wholehearted support to using biochar. It makes you wonder; is this about carbon or is this about punishing industry? Source:http://news.cnet.com/8301-11128_3-10212763-54.html
