[Stoves] Re: [Biochar] Where to discuss STOVES AND CARBON offsets and drawdown


Again you are correct about carbon credits.  But you are trying to
UN-link stove carbon credits from the issues of climate change and
Drawdown, about which we must also discuss these char-producing (and
very clean burning) TLUD stoves.

The readers of the Stoves Listservs and the moderators (all very great
people) have repeatedly rejected that the drawdown / climate change
issues should be fully aired on this Stoves Listserv.

Please realize the difference.  Case 1:  Some charcoal  stoves (as in
the Uga Stove in  Uganda that received great praise for being the first
carbon credit / Gold Standard project for stoves) earn 1 or 1.5 carbon 
credits per year for using LESS charcoal, but that charcoal  is STILL
produced very poorly via traditional char-making methods.     Case 2: 
The TLUD stoves (as in the ChampionTLUD in India) is earning 4 (as in
FOUR) carbon credits per year for using LESS biomas (wood) fuel from
sustainable sources AND YIELDING CHARCOAL that has economic value AND
value for carbon credits (2 of those 4 carbon credits).

Simply bringing up this previous paragraph is pushing the limits of what
is the purpose of the Stoves Listserv.   And if the purpose were to be
expanded, we would lose some Stoves readers.  I am looking for where
people are already discussing drawdown and climate change AND would
welcome the stoves  contribution.

All comments are welcome.
