The Dilemma of the Inequality

The Inequality:

$[char as heat and electricity] >=< $[char as C--] and $[char as biochar]

No markets for the RHS, wherever there is available woody biomass [char as heat and electricity] is made and there is a local market for charcoal.

Therefore no biochar, no carbon sequestration.

Carbon “Offsets” vs. Carbon “Equal & Opposites”

The Difference Between Substitutes and Complements

OFFSETS

• Does nothing to remove CO2 from the short term carbon cycle

• Only succeed in changing the rate of C++ activities

• Attempt to substitute net or inherently carbon neutral energy for C++ energy;

EQUAL & OPPOSITES

• Permanently removes CO2 from the short term carbon cycle

• Acts to complement C++ activities with C-- activities

• [C--] is a complement to [C++], facilitates the creation of a universal energy market that is uniformly carbon neutral [C=] and [C==]
