From a discussion of an article titled:
Let’s go green and cultivate solid biomass
Thumbs up on the topic
I support raising biomass in rotation on agricultural lands.
I support using the biomass for energy/biorefinery products and biochar.
I like the idea of splitting off a portion of the wetter or less suitable biomass to use in composting.
I support improving the farmland and nearby forestland with biochar compost and adding fertilizer/mineral through the compost to build soil health.
I support sending a portion of the product to the surrounding areas to slowly revitalize the field and forests regionally and where there is excess globally (such projects should be publicly funded).
I see so many successful techniques to grow the soil biology and through it the natural production systems that I would slate this as our predominant way to become symbiotic, and to reverse the imbalances of CO2 and over salinization of oceans, deserts and sees.
The end results: an increasing of the land biology in the form of vibrant ecosystems even in places that were desertified or decertifying, equalized flow of minerals that were increasingly “out to sea”, and a re-balanced atmospheric CO2 over time.

I don't believe in destroying what is here today. I believe in building a future that outperforms and solved inadequacies and failures of present and the past.
My driving intent and focus goes to empower the agrarian reality. I dream of and believe in the need for agrarian renaissance.
Agrarians are those rooted and sustained by the local landscape and community.
I believe that through agrarian success, the world can see a major shift in the human inflicted global ecological effect. We can see a symbiotic future that embraces, feeds on, and promotes ecological and cultural diversity. We can see people, through the natural living of their lives, effecting a rapidly regenerating global environment and reversal of longstanding global desertification.
Since we can, we should. Social engineering? well kind of, yeah. It is intelligent strategic paradigm development. Our civilizational paradigm tends to orient any and all diverse cultures to effect environmental harm/footprint. Therefore, we need to reorient the paradigm to naturally effect regenerative and symbiotic relationships with nature instead.
Agrarian society is in free fall as the paradigm orients cultures and societies around global financial economy with built in rewards and penalties (remember agrarian by definition is place and community oriented).
I believe it is not only possible but crucial to resuscitate and accentuate the infrastructure for global agrarianism and to do it in such a way as to enable renaissance/flowering.
That is my life's work, my passion, and what I live for and would be happy to die for any day of the week. This blog is my rough and in many instances unedited writings on the subject. These are not refined articles. They are a semi-formal journaling to log ideas I find important.
