    What is Biochar and How Can it Help the Climate?

    What is Biochar and How Can it Help the Climate?

    As we all know, climate change is happening. It’s no longer some distant future doomsday that we can prevent, it's here. However, there are a LOT of things we can do to minimize the effects and possibly undo some of the damage. One of those things is called biochar. Is that a pokemon? Is it a cartoon supervillain? Actually, no. 
    Biochar is similar to charcoal but it’s not used as a fuel. It is produced by heating biomass with very little oxygen. By restricting the oxygen you prevent it from burning and turning to ash and you are left with a carbon-rich material with lots of uses. Biochar has the potential to mitigate the effects of climate change and greatly improve soil quality, all while reducing waste and producing energy as a byproduct.

    Exxon’s Climate Change “Strategy”

    Exxon’s Climate Change “Strategy”

    Some major oil companies have recently unveiled plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reinvent themselves in the face of climate change. Exxon has not announced any plan to deal with climate change but this week Bloomberg News reported on a leaked copy of Exxon’s 2018 investment plan and it calls for 17% more greenhouse gas emissions by 2025. We’ll take a look at Exxon’s dramatic plummet over the last few years and their big gamble on business as usual, come hell or high water (literally).
