Ladies and Gentlemen!
|Iím a mechanical
engineer with experience in the nuclear industry. As one trained in the
burning of fossil fuels, I became interested in the climate change issue
about twenty years ago.
evolved into participation in† Canadaís
studies of†† means† to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as taken
on under the Kyoto Protocol. I represented the Canadian Nuclear Association
on several committees a decade ago.
|We are still a
long way from deciding how to cope with climate change.† It seems we have some doubts about the need
to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide and just how that might be done.
|Iím here to seek
your help with one more process which could remove carbon dioxide from the
atmosphere and might simultaneously improve the planets soil. It depends on
tweaking the carbon cycle to enhance the soil carbon sink.
|Is it possible
we could turn our carbon emissions into an asset toward a sustainable future?
