  • Seeing that pile of burning tree debris makes me really worry about carbon dioxide pollution. You could have burned the trees in a way that maximises the amount of charcoal produced ( codyslab, alworld.info , seems to be pretty good at doing just that ) and then mix the charcoal into the soil or spread it into the lake. Charcoal is between neutral and beneficial to the environment when you mix it into the soil. I think that if you did this it would reduce the CO2 emissions of this project by 4x, from 4 tons to 1 ton

    • @coltin engle yes, it gets very complicated very quickly, but a tree in the woods, dying and rotting or just burning is different because another tree will grow in place of the old tree in the woods , but a tree in an area for housing would never grow back as much. To compensate, i think that char maximization policies are maybe a good idea.

    • @Another Neko You forgot to include the transport of the workers, how they eat, how their city maintenances utilities, where the petrol comes from, the creation of the concrete for the spent uranium, the mining for the minerals for those machines and the machines used by the farmers, cooks, workers to get to work, the fractional distillation process for oil itself, one barrel of crude does not equal one barrel of gas, the drilling for the oil in the first place and its required machines, the shipment of those materials across the ocean for refinement, once refined the shipment to the logistics wearhouse bases where it then gets sold from on the global market, the shipment to the manufacturer, the energy spent taking the materials to their near final form, the shipment to the assembly plants, then the shipments to the point of sale for each piece of equipment used by everyone above. On average it takes 20 million barrels of oil to decommission a nuclear power plant. We consume 7.5 billion barrels of petroleum products per day. Let me ask you, if a tree in the woods catches fire, is it still carbon negative?

      coltin englecoltin engle13 ditë më parë
    • @coltin engle uhh suppose it takes 1000 hours of bulldozer work (9300 L diesel) and 10000 miles of big trucks moving stuff on the road (4000 L of gas) so that's like 13300 L or 81 barrels. So I'd guess around 100 barrels for a $1,000,000,000 project, or 1 barrel per 10,000,000 dollars of money spent. And I imagine you could get a pond like that built for between $10,000 and $50,000 which at that rate would cost 0.8 of fuel. This is an hour long video so it probably took around 10 L of diesel. 10 L of diesel produces 27.30 kg of CO2 in an engine. 1 ton of burned trees and shrubs produces 1650 kg of CO2. CO2 is 27% mass carbon so 1 ton of wood could produce up to 445 kg of charcoal (probably significantly less due to the energy requirements of pyrolysis), so maybe ~300 kg of charcoal.

    • @Another Neko you're paining yourself based on preconceived notions whilst remaining naive to greater truths. Let me ask you, how many barrels of oil does it take to decommission a nuclear power plant?

  • in my area how a burn permit works is you call up they give you a burn permit number. in case someone calls the police/fire they know am burning at that address on file and how long it would be burning. thats in my area. so no one would come... now if i call yes because its out of control.,

You deserve all the best with the new machine. You just keep on growing and growing. You make it look so easy doing a lot of the work by yourself. Where did Tim go?? Again, all the best for one of the hardest working guys on ALworld.
