[OOPS! The Agence France-Presse (AFP) has blocked this video from being embedded on other (non-paying) websites. To watch it, you must click TWICE on the video window -- once to bring up the refusal notice and again to go to the AFT post of it at YouTube. (The Mainstream Media still doesn't understand the open-source movement but that's another story.)]

The biochar movement has been growing quickly, primarily as a result of speculation that it may provide a counter response for global warming. As you can see in the video, the media sound-byte mongers are already claiming that it may be a "silver bullet." This may overwhelm biochar's main promise which is to establish a reciprocal relationship between humans and nature resulting in health, renewal and restoration for the whole earth community. The true harvest of biochar must be healthy soils and not merely carbon credits.

You can keep posted on the many exciting developments at the website of the International Biochar Initiative.
