Posted By: biffvernonThe process of photosynthesis - combustion - flue gas - capture - storage looks likely to be the most practicable route, and the heat energy produced is a bonus
Posted By: Chris WardleNo reason why we need to burn the timber to use forestry as a carbon sink. We could just plant a whole lot more durable timber and, when it is mature, use it for making high quality furniture and in long lasting buildings. The CO2 is then locked up indefinitely
Posted By: biffvernonIt is using the trees as CO2 atmospheric scrubbers. This actually works better than artificially trying to get the tiny amount of CO2 out of the atmosphere. It is relatively easy to capture CO2 from the flue gas where it forms the bulk of the gas
Posted By: biffvernonIt seems to be bumping along a plateau at around 85 million barrels per day. Light sweet crude has already peaked and we're probably at about the peak for all liquids. Time will tell
Posted By: biffvernonThere is a lot of uncertainty about how quickly coal and the unconventional oils can be exploited
Posted By: biffvernonThe rate of production is perhaps more important than the final total
Posted By: fostertomMore good news.BTW, a far higher priority than giving up air travel, is that we should all give up cement and concrete
Posted By: Chris Wardlewe just take it for granted and start going on stag dos in Prague etc
Posted By: Chris Wardlethey just chucked some flat bits of stone in a trench and bricked off that. I think compressed earth blocks made on site could make real in roads into embodied energy in building by replacing bricks and concrete blocks. I'd like to see this research more thoroughly and then put into practice in the UK
Posted By: Chris Wardleexplain, Tom, how you think things are "going well" because all I see is things going badly
