Agriculture A Major Contributor To Deforestation, Climate Change

August 24, 2017

Soil Depletion Releasing Carbon Into Atmosphere

By Ellen Wulfhorst, Thomson Reuters Foundation

Agriculture has contributed nearly as much to climate change as deforestation by intensifying global warming, according to U.S. research that has quantified the amount of carbon taken from the soil by farming.

Some 133 billion tons of carbon have been removed from the top two meters of the earth’s soil over the last two centuries by agriculture at a rate that is increasing, said the study in PNAS, a journal published by the National Academy of Sciences.

Global warming is largely due to the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from such activities as burning fossil fuels and cutting down trees that otherwise would absorb greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide.

But this research showed the significance of agriculture as a contributing factor as well, said Jonathan Sanderman, a soil scientist at the Woods Hole Research Center in Falmouth, Massachusetts and one of the authors of the research.

While soil absorbs carbon in organic matter from plants and trees as they decompose, agriculture has helped deplete that carbon accumulation in the ground, he said.Widespread harvesting removes carbon from the soil as do tilling methods that can accelerate erosion and decomposition.

It’s alarming how much carbon has been lost from the soil, he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Small changes to the amount of carbon in the soil can have really big consequences for how much carbon is accumulating in the atmosphere.

Sanderman said the research marked the first time the amount of carbon pulled out of the soil has been spatially quantified.The 133 billion tons of carbon lost from soil compares to about 140 billion tons lost due to deforestation, he said, mostly since the mid-1800s and the Industrial Revolution.

But the findings show potential for the earth’s soil to mitigate global warming by absorbing more carbon through such practices as better land stewardship, more extensive ground cover to minimize erosion, better diversity of crop rotation and no-till farming, he said.

The world’s nations agreed in Paris in 2015 to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases generated by burning fossil fuels that are blamed by scientists for warming the planet.

3D Printing Funding Bubble? Did It Break?

August 22, 2017

After the hype bubble sent 3D printing stocks tumbling in 2014, the industry is starting to recover, shedding much of the fat associated with consumer 3D printing. Instead, industrial 3D printers have become the focus, with even desktop 3D printer manufacturers focusing heavily on the application of affordable 3D printing for prototyping and designing, rather than the idea of a 3D printer in every home. That shift in focus still hasn’t managed to affect 3D printer companies much as our Nanalyze 3D Printing Stocks motif has return -8% over the past year compared to a +2.5% change in the S&P500.

According the the largest 3D Printing E-learning site, many of the new inventors are now being replaced with serious business executives. Its no easier to start a 3D Printing Business than any other type of business.
