    food 9 April 2007 issue of TIME Join 350 org a political action group that organized the Climate March in NYC and is working to lower carbon in our atmosphere Join The Citizens Climate Lobby a group that is working to put a tax on carbon Get the attention of your Senator we have spoken to Senators and Congressmen on both sides of the aisle and they have all said that they are going to do nothing until we make them uncomfortable Currently the oil lobbyists are making them Very comfortable You can call them or write about their choices in letters to the editor The Senator may not initially read it but his her aide will forward it to the Senator and then the Senator will begin to be concerned about retaining their comfy job as a Senator Take public transportation One gallon of gasoline makes 19 pounds of CO2 and the USA used 368 51 million gallons a day or 134 51 BILLION gallons or 3 2 billion barrels of gasoline a year or in other words we create 7 BILLION pounds of CO2 a year Work at home move near work or start saving up for an environmentally friendly car Take a train preferably electric worldwide airline flights produce over 705 million tons of CO2 The USA alone consumes 20 billion gallons of aviation fuel each year Choose a species and work like hell to keep them alive Limit the number of children you produce to two the human population of the planet is currently 7 125 billion and projected to go to 11 billion by 2100 Use your own bag 1 6 Billion gallons of oil are used each year for plastic bags alone Use your own bottle 17 Million BARRELS of oil are used in

    from the radiators is sucked through the waste by the vacuum created underneath the rotating belt drying the waste at a relatively low temperature Carbonizer Catalyst The waste is charred and sanitized when it is heated to a temperature between 300 700 degrees in the absence of oxygen An auger in the bottom of the firebox subdivides any ash clinker to prevent clogging Two augers underneath the firebox transport biochar to the collection box The waste is initially pyrolyzed releasing half the carbon as syngas suitable as a free energy source while charring the remainder Above the carbonizer a catalyst cleans the exhaust by oxidizing gases Heat Recapturing System Heat Engine Condensing heat exchanger A key feature of the biochar reactor is the heat recapturing system Heat from the carbonizer and catalyst passes through the Heat engine The engine s internal heat exchanger produces electrical energy to power the belt dryer and augers After powering the Heat engine the excess heat is led into the condensing heat exchanger where it transfers heat into the dryer by condensing water vapor present in the exhaust stream from oxidation and from the 30 moisture of the input material Human Waste as a Pyrolytic Source Material Human solid waste comprises a feasible input for our reactor but we need further research to see how the reactor can accommodate variations in raw material and the amount of energy that could be generated During the R D phases we used several proxies to human waste to test the technology and resulting biochar properties porcine manure dog manure and eventually with the setup of the lab at Sanergy human waste The following properties of human solid waste are most important for the functioning of the reactor Caloric value Checked monthly for variances together with University of Kwazulu

    valuable ecosystems on the planet although reefs occupy only 0 2 percent of the ocean s area worldwide they are home to one third of all sea life and support more species per unit area than any other marine environment including about 4 000 species of fish 800 species of hard corals Iit is estimated that there are 8 million 8 000 000 undiscovered plants and animals that may live in or near coral reefs The annual global economic value of coral reefs is estimated between US 30 to 375 billion in goods and services including fisheries tourism coastal protection as a source of medical advances and environmental wealth Every day 30 mi llion TONS of carbon dioxide is poured into the ocean EVERY DAY The ocean is becoming too warm and acidic for the organisms that live there and th e acid is killing coral a nd many thousands of species The warming planet has slowed down the underwater jet stream wh ich provides both the nutrients and the cooler water to the surface of the ocean As a result the coral are getting too hot and are becoming nutrient deprived And if the coral reefs go extinct which they are life as we know it is permanently going away Humans are naïve to believe that life will continue as usual without healthy coral reefs or for that matter a planet A quarter of all marine species spend some part of their life cycle in the coral reef ecosystem It is estimated that 100 million humans will die by 2030 because of climate change That is 100 million people in the next 14 years 660 000 humans have already died due to climate change We must protect the biggest most diverse environment on the planet or pay the price
