Curing the Climate: It’s not just about cutting fossil fuels, you know

Jul 09, 2010 No Comments by

An evening of presentations and discussion, chaired by Molly Walsh of Friends of the Earth.

The international effort to prevent catastrophic climate change has concentrated on carbon dioxide reductions and other possible part-solutions such as reducing black carbon have been ignored. Richard Douthwaite of Feasta presented the case for a more diversified approach to the climate crisis and, in a second presentation, Corinna Byrne of the Carbon Cycles and Sinks Network set out ways in which changes in the way the land is used can remove some of the carbon already in the air.…

Corinna Byrne – Carbon Cycles and Sinks; refocussing the purpose and use of land

Jun 12, 2009 No Comments by
Corinna Byrne examined the policies needed to get Irish land to absorb CO2 rather than release it. Besides discussing how the large amounts of carbon locked up in peatlands can be safeguarded, she reviewed the role that biochar could play in reducing nitrous oxide and methane emissions and building up the fertility and carbon content of the soil.
