We will avoid huge economic costs, if we address climate change, and we will save lots of money in the long run, by moving to renewable energy.

Increasing carbon in the soil - which will remove it from the air - will also have big benefits. Each gram of carbon in the soil can absorb at least 8 grams of water (and as much as 20gm in some soils), and the biology that created the soil increases, with more carbon. And nutrients are held in the carbon, as well.

Carbon bonds with everything. We can clean up brown fields with carbon, too.

Preta tera is pyrolyized biomass with a mycological infusion. Growing trees to burn to sustain a 'Western standard of living' for all would exhaust the Nitrogen and Phosporus.

What renewable are going to replace fossil fuels?
How does solar wind and wave power make steel, concrete, glass, asphalt, ect?
Because a lot of concrete, steel, glass are needed to build wind solar and wave power, then it all gets moved on asphalt or concrete roads.

The climate changes for various reasons - and we know through science that we humans are changing it now.

The moon gives us tidal power, and it is starting to be used.

Terra preta is the ideal, and we can do several things to increase the carbon content in the soil. If we can increase the top 6" of just the active agricultural soil by just 1% - we would have the atmosphere below 350ppm.

We can take from the air - where it is doing great harm - and put it in the soil, where it would do lots of good things.

About 1/4 of the land on earth is (so-called) permafrost.

But, it is not permanent. It is melting. Rather rapidly.

It is releasing carbon dioxide and methane - and it contains about TWICE as much carbon that is already in the atmosphere.
