  1. Petition the President and Congress to Support Conversion of Power Stations (Petitions.MoveOn.org)
      This petition is for the President and Congress to support the conversion of coal-fired power stations to "biomass pyrolysis" power stations to REVERSE excessive carbon dioxide in the air. Decaying vegetation (biomass) puts many times more carbon dioxide into the air than all of human activity. If we adapt coal-fired power stations to pyrolyze (heat without oxygen) biomass, we can economically reduce the amount or carbon dioxide in the air (rather than merely slow down the increase).

  2. Biomass Pyrolysis (Alternative Energy eMagazine)
      "Biomass pyrolysis has been attracting much attention due to its high efficiency and good environmental performance characteristics. It also provides an opportunity for the processing of agricultural residues, wood wastes and municipal solid waste into clean energy. In addition, biochar sequestration could make a big difference in the fossil fuel emissions worldwide and act as a major player in the global carbon market with its robust, clean and simple production technology."

  3. -01 Average CO2 Level Hits 400 PPM (Time.com)
      "April was the first time the monthly average of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, a threshold that the U.N. says has 'symbolic and scientific significance.' "

  4. -Runaway Climate Change (ClimateVictory.org)
      "The climate danger is the greatest threat facing humankind. Recent science indicates that our best chance to preserve a stable climate is to bring carbon emissions to ZERO - very quickly - all over the world."

      "There is a way to achieve this: an Operation Climate Victory, an emergency wartime-style mobilization of the nations of the world to rewire the entire global economy to run on abundant, non-polluting sources of energy that will never run out, and upgrade agriculture to pull carbon from the air. We can do it while maintaining a modern technological society, and we can do it in far less time than most people think is possible. We can do it!"
