Green Land Clearing

When people clear land around here for houses and malls, etc. they stack the brush in piles and then burn it. Tons of CO2 go up into the air.

Instead, there should be a machine that can turn this land clearing waste into charcoal, which is a natural fertilizer and excellent carbon sequestration device. Or the debris could be chipped and used for landscaping purposes or compost.

  1. I heard about charcoal as well. Stores CO2 and enriches the soil. Trouble is, with brush clearing, you get so much mulch and stuff that’s no good for making charcoal. I think chipping for garden use is a good idea.
