They don't know with certainty, but just the fact that they are afraid it might be the case is enough.
And thus Loggy is being denied the kind of access he needs to get bio-char at or near Priority One.
Thanks for the kind words, Señor J. Furry!

I would like to give a somewhat different take on the lack of access (which is all too true) - the obstacles I have run into aren't generally fear or greedy protectionism - it's that people, especially powerful ones, think they know the most already, and aren't receptive to ideas that they are unfamiliar with. Or they have some preconceived standards for what a good idea looks like. In the case of global warming and forest fires, they think solutions should be humongous and nearly instantaneous. That's a job for the Big Boys! Big money, big industry, big donations, and BIG GASLIGHTING!!!

They are not intelligent enough, or informed enough to even begin to understand the problems, so the innovative solutions are invisible to them.

But they get to make the decisions.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
