Some recent one-liners on Biochar, included on the IBI email list.
AL GORE – “One of the most exciting new strategies for restoring carbon to depleted soils, and sequestering significant amounts of CO2 for 1,000 years and more, is the use of biochar.”
BILL MCKIBBEN – “If you could continually turn a lot of organic material into biochar, you could, over time, reverse the history of the last two hundred years…”
DR. TIM FLANNERY – “Biochar may represent the single most important initiative for humanity’s environmental future….”
DR. JAMES LOVELOCK – “There is one way we could save ourselves and that is through the massive burial of charcoal.”
The International Biochar Initiative is committed to nurturing the shoots of hope that biochar promises. Through our programs in research, education, policy and technical support, we will continue to support deployment of sustainable biochar systems around the world that draw carbon from the atmosphere while improving soils.
2010 will be another exciting year for biochar.
