The Biochar Solution : Carbon Farming and Climate Change By Albert Bates. "The Biochar Solution" explores the dual function of biochar as a carbon-negative energy source and a potent soil-builder. Created by burning biomass in the absence of oxygen, this material has the unique ability to hold carbon back from the atmosphere while simultaneously enhancing soil fertility. Albert Bates traces the evolution of this extraordinary substance from the ancient black soils of the Amazon to its reappearance as a modern carbon sequestration strategy.Combining practical techniques for the production and use of biochar with an overview of the development and future of carbon farming, "The Biochar Solution "describes how a new agricultural revolution can reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to below zero while increasing world food reserves and creating energy from biomass wastes.The author created his own biochar with great results, which led him to research around the world. He spent three years traveling and researching for this topic to Brazil, Europe, and the American Midwest, engaged in field experiments for over two years, and read over 20 related books on the subject. The author is well-known and well-connected, and already has a substantial following. He is a seasoned speaker who has addressed audiences of up to 10,000 people. He is media savvy, with over 1,000 interviews and articles under his belt.This book will appeal to anyone attuned to environmental matters, gardeners, farmers, anyone interested in organics. Will have an academic and library market.
