Anybody else participating in a climate action event today?

I was on a panel yesterday presenting on Things You Can Do to draw down atmospheric CO2. It was well attended and folks appreciated the presentations but I didnít get the feeling that anybody was motivated to actually do anything.

ďCultural entrenchment is strong among them, Obi-wan...Ē

According to my evaluation spreadsheet, you are doing more than anyone else here to fight climate change. But make some noise about it!

I didn't attend an event, but I actually did something. I fed 30.46 KWH of electricity into the grid today. So far my solar panels have supplied SDG&E with over 2.6 MegaWatt hours of electricity they didn't have to generate. Most of their generation uses natural gas. so it's equivalent to about 2600 pounds of CO2 not emitted.

I went to one of these in my town. It was really quite moving to be standing in a crowd of passionate young people who are truly aware and concerned about what is happening. The sad thing is that no one actually seems to know what to do, except protest and demonstrate. About half of the cars passing by honked in support. Maybe 10% scowled and made negative gestures.

(I recently took in a MAGA webinar called ďEvaluation of Crowd Size at RalliesĒ - using the Trump Totally Science-Free Method I came up with 30,000 demonstrators in the park and another million in a line stretching around the block waiting to get in. No one has ever seen anything like it.)

Last night I cooked a chicken stuffed with sauerkraut on the charbecue. The process pyrolyzed 5 pounds of woody biomass and made 1.5# of sequesterable carbon. Doing the math that was a drawdown of 5.4 # of atmospheric CO2 and avoidance of about 5# of fossil fuel derived CO2 from not using propane. It also represented .00025 acre of forest fire fuels reduction. It also made $1.50 worth of a high value soil amendment that will save water and increase productivity in the garden.

We passed a milestone yesterday, successfully making biochar feedstock pellets from juniper slash. You need to put your geek on to appreciate this - it has been a goal of mine for fifteen years to develop a complete system that will utilize ďliability biomassĒ and turn it into a valuable and useful product. I didnít have any doubt that it could be done, but itís a link in the system chain that has been missing.

You know the brush that fuels Californiaís chronic wildfires? That is now feedstock for an energy and biochar system that will draw down atmospheric CO2, save water, regenerate soils, create jobs, save energy, and make money.

We still have a long way to go to actually commercialize the system. The current version of capitalism that controls everything is geared to support new technologies with a lot of money backing them far more than it supports good ideas with a wide range of benefits.

I could put Rocksus on a treadmill with a Kong tennis ball in front of his face, and generate enough electricity to light-up the entire east coast seaboard. smile

..or just one light bulb. Hmm
