Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, known as COP24
“...Despite the dire situation, the world could still tackle climate change effectively, he said. Saying it was too expensive to do so was "hogwash". "For every dollar spent restoring degraded forests, as much as $30 can be recouped in economic benefits and poverty reduction," Mr Guterres said…”
TAKING CARBON OUT OF THE AIR AND PUTTING IT UNDERGROUND WITH BAMBOO
Instead of capturing CO2 from power station exhausts and piping it underground, simply grow Bamboo in the centre of Desserts and store that underground. This fertilizes the Desserts, making that territory available to flooded Island dwelling communities looking for a new home.
Bamboo grows on sand, is as light as aluminium whilst being as strong as steel when soaked in borax. Which also ensures that Carbon is not released back to the atmosphere which would be the case for rotting untreated bamboo. Additionally, trimmings may be mashed up so as to yield a cloth with many of the characteristics of Cotton, though requiring a fraction of the irrigation needed for cotton.
Bamboos require no replanting at all; they shoot themselves and these shoots are edible, thus providing a secondary food crop. Some species could crop within a year, reaching full height in two.
Irrigation of the centre of Desserts is simply a matter of putting “Stable Salt Reactors” in the right places. Seawater is distilled/desalinated, piped and pumped from the coasts to the centre of desserts: the resulting brine being returned to the sea so as to avoid depleting salinity levels any more than at present from melting Icelandic and Siberian glaciers.
SSR’s are just a few years away from fully licensed deployment. They run on Gravity so don’t need pumps, whilst compact manufacture enables units shipping on the “back of a lorry” and also are easily clustered/scaled - optimum of eight to a gang.
If SSR’s were developed for Military use, eg. the Royal Supercarriers, they would become available very much sooner for Climate Change Reversal.
A truly “disruptive game changer”; an investor's dream. If the oil companies bought into this, events would follow quite rapidly.
