Hi all.

Biomass absorption of CO2 is great and there are plenty of local  
primary producers ready and willing to be encouraged to fix carbon in  
large quantities, bamboos and seaweeds only two sorts among them.

If you want to get depressed, read Kim Stanley Robinson's climate  
trilogy, and remember that no matter what we pull off in terms of  
political will, we will overshoot, and things will get really really  

If you want to feel cheery, stop traveling, keep planting, and make  
sure those pesky carbons don't escape so soon from whatever you've so  
painstakingly grown without doing some good work first.
