Re: I thought AGL was on the cutting edge of renewables?
AGL is not on the cutting edge of renewables at all, pity. About the statement "It has been scientifically proven that wetlands sequester 40 times more carbon than than even rainforests do..." This is basically why: Conservation and Restoration Protects coasts from storms and some pollution and storing blue carbon when the ecosystems are intact. Blue carbon is the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems eg mangroves,tidal marshes and seagrasses. These eosystems, sequester and store large quantities of blue carbon in both the plants and the sediment below. For example, over 95% of the carbon in sea grass meadows is stored in the sods. Blue sink carbon storage must be restored and protected to lower green house emissions, to be stored not degraded or destroyed. When degraded or destroyed,these ecosystems emit the carbon they have stored for even past centuries, into the atmosphere and oceans which then becomes SOURCES OF GREENHOUSE GASES. How does AGL get around this catastrophic environmental scientifically proved concern in the light of global warming, heat waves, fires and droughts??
