  2. -China, India, and USA Make Climate Deal (USA Today)
      "A senior Obama administration official says the U.S., China, India and South Africa have reached a 'meaningful agreement' on climate change."

      Editor's Note: Coal-fired power plants from China, India, and the U.S. are the top sources of human-caused CO2 emissions in the world.

      However, decaying organic matter (biomass) releases 8 times as much CO2 into the air as coal-fired plants and all other human activity. If organic waste from agriculture and forestry is pyrolyzed into clean energy and biochar and on a global scale, the amount of total CO2 in the air could be reversed to avoid a catastrophe. 12-09
