"Rhizosphere Observations Optimizing Terrestrial Sequestration (ROOTS)
Improving the ability for plants to store carbon in the soil has the potential to significantly reduce atmospheric CO2 levels. The ROOTS program is making up to $30 million in funding available to pursue technologies that develop new crop breeding approaches for improved root and soil function that will help plants to store more carbon in the ground and take up nutrients and water more…

wonder what he'd do about wind turbines lining the slopes of the mountains he worked so hard to protect?
Time to shame the SIERRA CLUB over their destruction of his vision for America.
It is strange if you think about it too long. How much things have changed in such a short time. How just the thinking has changed. Twenty-five years ago we were worried about nukes and WMDs in Iraq. We had a focus, but we were by and large at peace.
Now we are faced with a resurgent Russia pushing in several areas, ISIS, Afghan Terrorists, and a very unstable Middle East that seems ready to fall into despotism. And the strong military that was set to stand and did stand in our and…Continue
Wind Turbines are the Most Visible Symbols of the quest for renewable electricity generation. And yet, although they exploit the wind, which is as free and as green as energy can be, the machines themselves are pure embodiments of fossil fuels.• Large trucks bring steel and other raw materials to the site, earth-moving equipment beats a path to otherwise inaccessible high ground, large cranes erect the structures, and all these machines burn diesel fuel. So do the freight trains and…Continue

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by…Continue

Governor Baldacci's darling company subsumed by a house of cards that has now collapsed.
Let's see how the Maine wind cartel, including all their handmaidens in the "environmental" groups spin this disaster. Meanwhile, the 500'+ tall turbines are all over our landscape and the process of decay is now formally underway. Thank…Continue

Now that coal has been brought to its knees, the Sierra Club’s moved on to its next victim: natural gas. Big Green has a strategy to destroy American oil and gas production with the same tactics.
Don’t take our word for it: Here is what Lena Moffitt, who runs the Sierra Club's Beyond Dirty Fuels campaign, says: "We have moved to a very clear and firm and vehement position of opposing gas. Our board recently passed a policy that we oppose any new gas-fired power plants. We also have a…Continue
