Thank you. Absolutely gorgeous.
Quoted, in case someone missed that.
That's an awesome site!
The second one on the site is just incredible.
It gets updated every time someone posts an image onto that subreddit, from my understanding of how imgur and reddit interact. It's certainly been updated since I linked it. Add to your favorites
My personal favorite on the page so far is this:
There are so many awesome pictures there, but for some reason, this is the one I need to be in my back yard.
If someone knows where that is, let me know.
I'll buy a house there when I win the lottery.
I quite like this one.
Some lightning I captured. Sorry for the low res, but I still think it's cool.
Spoiler they should be small, but spoiler just in case :
OC is always welcome and appreciated.
Ocean sprays to reflect heat energy.
In the same vein, dissemination of stratospheric sulfur aerosols to reflect heat.
Orbital mirrors that deflect solar radiation.
Iron seeding to facilitate phytoplankton growth that acts as biological carbon capture and sequestration technology.
Biochar, a means of sequestering carbon in soil which also increases fertility.
More people need to know about this.
I'm surprised they aren't. I don't see any significant downsides to the technology. Unless someone can inform me otherwise?
Would it have any polluting effect on water if it was somehow washed away into a stream or river?
You mean any more than fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides and all our other craps already do?
IIRC carbon is not a limiting factor for algae in fresh water so runoff won't lead to eutrophication.
Probably just that the process of turning biomass into charcoal puts some pollutants into the air. It's believed that native Amazonians made the land in the Amazon basin fertile by mixing charcoal in with it. Jungle lands are not normally very fertile.
Quoted for awesomeness !
