“I believe this is how we can really end global warming. But time is short and irreversibility is frighteningly close”
First- We must take the one trillion tonnes excess carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Only farms and farmers can do it for us simply by creating more humus in their soils. It’s what organic farmers do all the time. It’s now being called “soil carbon sequestration”. Don’t shackle our farmers, just pay them $10 a tonne minimum, and no strings attached, and they will figure out the cheapest and best systems for their own farm themselves. It becomes an absolute win – win for all of us..
It’s know acknowledge by meteorologists and oceanographers that — “You can’t stop the creeping heating if you leave the stuff there”
Second- We must not let it ever build up again. So we must massively increase the use of NON-FOSSIL fuels. We switch to direct nuclear power generation for 24/7 industrial power. This can be assisted by indirect nuclear power such as solar, wind, geothermal, and hydro. For transport we make the tiny engine changes needed to run on bio-fuels and adapt the design of city vehicles to operate on battery/electric power systems.
Shipping, because of size variations, will have to adapt as suits. With the these systems in place we can afford to keep air transport running on fossil fuels for much longer. It is only responsible for about 3% of current world greenhouse gas generation from fossil carbon . It is, however s not a big change to design their gas turbines to run on biodiesel .
I said back in the 1990s : “Renewable energy is all nuclear anyway ,for the Sun is a screaming fusion reactor and the Earth is a gently bubbling fission reactor and that’s right now”.
All the “Renewable and sustainable” energy systems only exist because they run on nuclear power. The only exception is tidal power because that energy comes from the gentle slowing down of the moon. That energy effect is generally too hard and too dilute to harvest. Third- Recognize that they don’t intend to go out of business. ” No way” says the countries and companies that mine fossilized carbon materials. And also “No way” says the countries and companies that process and market those materials, and of those, agrochemicals are way up at the top of the list. Their available war chest is around $1,000,000,000 a week, without even trying. That’s a billion dollars a week. ( It’s actually closer to one and a half billion.) How so? Well it’s simple. Anything from 1% of a business’s total sales, and up to 60% for some cosmetic lines, is spent on advertising and public relations and image building. (“Image building” now described as “perception management”.) Now check the total world sales of these climate changing products, and do the sums. Allowing just 1% to manage our “personal opinions” their add’ agencies would have their $1 billion a week in a heart bit. And it’s all used to “sell” us the image of their utterly fictitious innocence. If we don’t try, then we are the fools. Pay our farmers, at least, $10 a tonne CO2, no strings attached, and they’ll do it.
Doubters? So what? If It’s argued that creating humus, that’s creating soil carbon doesn’t work, then it follows that farmers will receive nothing and the costs will be zero. But not to give our farmers an unfettered, unrestrained and unencumbered opportunity to see what they can do would be beyond stupidity. For humanity has no known, no viable, no sane, and not even any hypothetical procedure for removing the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide overload. We have to try. It’s a very intelligent gamble. The Measure of Any Individual Countries Obligations is Clear There are international statistics on how much coal, oil and gas a country has burnt over the last few decades. So we know the world’s totals. So we know a country’s percentage contribution to the atmosphere’s CO2 overload. At 400 ppm the atmosphere’s total carbon dioxide overload is one trillion tonnes. The 1950 to 2000 figures show the percentage statistics for fossil fuel consumed per country. We have, for example, Australia at 1.17%; the US at 27.1%, the EU at 26.6%, Canada at 2.2% and Cambodia at 0.002%. At $10 a tonne Australia has to pay its farmers 1.17% of $10 trillion for totally removing Australia’s past contribution to Global Warming, that’s $117 billion. The US will pay its farmers a total of $2.7 trillion. It has already been estimated that the costs of climate change in the US will have climbed to $1.9 trillion per year by 2100. That’s under a year and a half to get to the, otherwise $2.7 trillion total. I believe it could take up to 15 years to get all that excess out of the air. So we are talking an annual cost for Australia of $8 billion: and for the US around $180 billion per year. A recent international report shows that Australia is “still subsidizing fossil fuel production to the tune of a massive $A5.6 billion a year”. Direct those subsidies to farmers for soil carbon sequestration and we are more than half way towards removing Australia’s obligation to ending global warming. And Australia ends up with some very rich and productive soils. Governments around the world are handing out close to $1 trillion per year in subsidies to fossil fuel producers and users. To see what’s happening, as a start, go to fossil fuel subsidies, . Or just Google “fossil fuel subsidies”. Redirect that $1 trillion to the individual country’s farmers and global warming will stop and temperatures will start to slowly normalize.
