NO Regret Net- Afforestation and Biochar

After a long time there is a very interesting study on NET - Negative Emissions Technology from University of Oxford, Smith School of Enterprise and Environment. Check out the new technologies being pursued to counter the effects of man-made emissions . But as the study points out, NET should not be seen as a deus ex machina that will ‘save the day.

I love the part where the study states the obvious, known to mankind since millennium. Simple steps like afforestation and rejuvenating our existing forests are the only low cost methods known to mankind that can stand a fighting chance against stifling emissions. We need a balance to counter the effects of Climate change. Reduce our emissions and promote Negative Emission Technologies at the same time.
