I have a question, how many ounces is 10 followed by 14 zero grams is?
Can those Monoterpenes be cheaply and easily synthasized/mass-produced? And if so is there any evidence yet that said synthetics might make for a viable cloud-seeding tech? And in that were the case: could such tech be placed strategically to help prevent forests from receding, or maybe to encourage regrowth/reforesting some areas? It's just an off-the-wall random idea that mildly interests me lol.
Am I the only one who was irked by the units they used to describe the monoterpene production? Why didn't they use more relatable metrics, like 100 billion kg, or 100 million metric tons?
All this known before or after the IPCC?
I have no clue what she was trying to explain in this video. What I got from it was Alpha Pinene. Thats literally it, terrible explanation.
Why are we chopping down trees around homes to install solar panels on the roof ? House gets hotter ...... more AC needed ! More wind in the winter ... more heating needed ..... what am I missing to have this seem productive ?
I appreciate this show and the science content, but to use the term "climate crisis" is verging on propaganda. Please dial it back.
This could well be the single most amazing thing I've yet learned. Just... WOW! 😲
Save the Trees
Have u ever seen Pennsylvania from the 1800's it was emptied of its trees. Man had to replant millions of quick growing forest. We learn from our past not to create the same mistakes.
Just a reminder, ever since 2016 we know we have more Trees in the world than before.
Thecresult of more CO2, H2O due to fossile fuel.
And using fossile fuel for both power and a source of Nitrogen, instead of trees.
The nitrogen is both via power production itself...
But also, that power is used to delibrately produce fertilizers.
Thus agriculture can use less land for more produce.
Add to urbanization that concentrates the population to less land area, and forests are getting only bigger and bigger on the whole.
Yes, desertification is a thing.
But mostly due to impropper use of agriculture and mismanagment of grazing animals.
Which we now know how to do.
They need the proper predator dinamic to make sure the land is healthy.
This is why California doesn't have water. They basiclaly cut down most of what was helping water to be more plentiful and then pumped most of it from the rivers and ground water. Yet people wonder why California hardly is not getting water anymore.
Fascinating stuff. This is great news that can be used to help alleviate global warming.
Are similar chemicals released when hey is cut, here in East Idaho it's a near desert but it's common to have cloud burst right over a freshly cut field of hey.
Only technology, a system, a society with a technological system can save the Amazon from the destruction being made by Brazil and the way Brazil system is based upon oversimplification and carelessness.
Rather than spending billions of dollars, they could put a bag over a limb and get real-time measurements? Biodomes are cool, but so is not having debt.
It's great to know the mechanisms... But you'd think someone might have researched something seafaring peoples have known for centuries (or perhaps even millennia) sooner. I recall both European and Polynesian references to this - and the Hawaiian saying in particular seems quite well known. Not withstanding this, would all rainfall on low islands be accounted for by orographic lift? What about the observations eternally made about desertification after deforestation and clear felling? Nope? Okay.... So did we really have the term "rain forest" for this long and never wonder why rain often falls from above the canopy? - yet when forest is cleared, overall rainfall reduces? If still no, did we somehow know trees both transpire and emit chemical and electrical signals for at least 40 years, arguably 60ish if we took note of a man called Backster and instead of ridiculing his discovery, looked into plausible mechanisms to account for it - and still not think of this? I remember seeing cloud seeing on a popular TV program in the 80s... And we only started plugging this all together beyond 2000? 2008ish? And now, this most recent set of discoveries came in the past 7 years or so?
Better late than never I suppose, although I can't say this fills me with too much hope... Feels too much like willful ignorance or long term denial until things are "properly discovered". Imagine if there was this level of sanctimony about gravity. We'd have scientific gravity derniers still because we hadn't properly worked it out. "Our" observation skills seem appalling 😩
