Russia intends to use taiga in an unusual way to offset CO2 emissions


The territory of Russia is so large that no one lives in most of it except bears, wolves and rare breeds of tigers. At the same time, the planet suffers from air pollution from carbon monoxide and other harmful gases. In this regard, Russian scientists have proposed an unusual way to use the Far Eastern taiga to offset CO2 emissions, writes Bloomberg.


In the Russian Federation, they plan to create a network of satellites that will collect information on the ability of the taiga to absorb carbon dioxide. Then vast areas of Siberia and the Far East will be leased out for planting forests and the sale of so-called "carbon credits".

The territory of the Russian Federation accounts for a fifth of the Earth's forests, and we have the potential to turn them into hubs for offsetting carbon dioxide emissions

- believes the Minister for the Development of the Far East Alexei Chekunov.

As part of these measures, companies will be able to lease areas of the taiga territory that have suffered from wildfires from the state, and plant trees on them, thereby compensating for the damage caused to nature. With positive data on CO2 reduction, these firms will be able to create a carbon credit and sell it on the digital marketplace.

According to scientists, in order to compensate for the harm caused by anthropogenic activities to the atmosphere and the environment and in order to avoid irreversible global warming, the world's population by the end of this decade should reduce greenhouse gas emissions by half, and by 2050 - to zero. Therefore, programs to capture harmful impurities from the atmosphere and green the planet are of paramount importance.

    The planet does not suffer from carbon dioxide, the planet cannot rejoice that it began to enter the atmosphere in sufficient quantities! The planet was almost bent from its lack !! Listen and take notes!

      You should advise Bloomberg, otherwise they have oxide and dioxide - on the drum. (Zhvanetsky spoke about them correctly.)))

    Original laughing And that there are companies that have nothing else to do except restore the taiga? So the Chinese will cut everything down for a clean cut, and we will restore everything. Ingenious lol And instead of grinding all sorts of nonsense, it is impossible to begin to properly protect the taiga, to prohibit uncontrolled felling, to tighten security laws (for illegal felling).

      It’s not enough. Since December 2020, China has reduced the agreed volumes of transportation, which means purchases of timber, coal, and Far Eastern fish. Under the guise of fighting the coronavirus. Overstocking has occurred. Well, prices, of course, fell. Strong. And operating expenses (downtime, non-fulfillment of contracts) were incurred by ... who do you think ...?
      So, buying cheaper, and selling more expensive (Ali Express has already become not cheap at all), China gives for every dollar of goods shipped from Russia, much less than a dollar for shipped from China. Just over a year ago.
      Yes, and gas to it (China) now costs only $ 120 per thousand cubic meters.
      Output. At the helm in Russia, including private corporations-national treasures, are sitting burdocks who have become obese ...

        And who is stopping Russia from building a network of refrigerators for Far Eastern fish and supplying it to the whole country? By the way, under the guise of refrigerators, completely nuclear armored trains can be launched on the railway. Let NATO members search - where is the fish, and where is the vigorous rocket?

    Don't need a satellite. We should not go to rallies, but to school for biology lessons. And you can also read VI Vernadsky "about the transition of the biosphere into the noosphere." Plants use photosynthesis to absorb carbon dioxide. You just need to stop cutting down the taiga in Russia and the jungle in the Amazon.

      on the transition of the biosphere to the noosphere

      If the substance of a person has a biological basis, then for such a transition it is necessary to constantly increase the level of education of a person, and this requires the development of both the economy and education, and much more, which requires a change in policy. And if the policy of the liberals led to the Russian cross, then in order to change the policy, it is necessary to change the liberals. Who and when?

    1) The head must be turned on by the bosses, otherwise, out of stupidity, or for bribes, they allow construction companies to cut down forests, gardens and parks, leaving cities without a green zone, which in itself is a crime against the population of the Russian Federation. The stench in the city is fierce, so the song of the same name of the group `` Gas Sector '' is recalled
    2) Old buildings that have served their purpose are not demolished in time, even those already settled, they stand for years as ruins, and trees are cut down.
    3) The demolition of the old fund also goes through the ass, since in the first place it is not the houses that are in disrepair that are demolished, but those that are more expensive on the land, although many of them could still stand.
    4) New buildings are often built of poor quality and new houses, in fact, are often worse than old ones, or they are built too close to each other, so that there is not enough light in the apartments.
    5) Nobody thinks about landscaping around new houses and parking at all.
    6) It seems that the people just think like cattle that it will eventually result in another revolution, since such an attitude towards the people cannot but pissed off the people.

      does not stink not where they are cleaned, but where there are no pigs. in the 60s my grandfather got an apartment in Khrushchev and poplars were planted. 20 years later, on the initiative of the lower floors, they were cut down. Are the willows and lilacs breaking the heads of construction companies? Do they also saw pine trees in plantings for the new year? maybe they shit in elevators?

        So it stinks of exhaust gases, and this is from the barbaric deforestation in the city of the green zone and the lack of landscaping in the new neighborhoods. So before planting poplars, it was necessary to wiggle the brain, from them both the fire hazard (from fluff) and allergies. There was such a decision of the Communist Party, as life has shown erroneous, poplars are not suitable for landscaping. And now in the new neighborhoods for landscaping and parking spaces are not provided at all, and who is to blame here, except for construction companies and rotten officials walking with them ?! By the way, the elevators are also lousy, they break down all the time, and there was a case when the bottom of the new building at the elevator collapsed, people died. And what, no one is to blame ?! Yes, construction companies are to blame and officials who checked the house for the quality of construction, approved its project, the project for the construction of new quarters. Now many new neighborhoods resemble Negro ghettos and if you don't want a new revolution in Russia, it's time to change. Houses must be built for people of the appropriate quality, and not the guano that is being built today, of lousy quality and without taking into account the needs of the people living in them

          officials did not fall from the moon. and the poplars were not cut down because of the fluff. you have to start with yourself and your children, and not blame an official. how many trees have you personally planted? did you always throw garbage into the bin?

            Officials have not fallen from the moon, they are appointed by the governor, and governors are appointed by Putin, and it's time to withdraw their unsuccessful appointments and reduce those in the future.I planted trees, but I doubt that bureaucrats and owners of construction companies did it, because planting trees dough does not bring, but people like them, and you seem to be one of them, their mother will be sold for grandmother.

                  started spinning? then all the officials are bad now not all ... the main thing was to make a statement and intimidate the Maidan. I don't care about your apartments and elevators. I have a private house. don't like the quality? do not buy, do not force. something empty new buildings are not observed. all the poor and unfortunate ... and the courtyards are packed with crossovers and premium Germans. you will not see a rusty Lada anywhere.

                    Not all stumps are clear. We had elections a year ago, so the people voted for the Communist Party. I cannot say that I am a fan of this party, but a deputy from it helped to ensure that the emergency electrical shields were finally repaired in the entrances of the house. The United Russia party didn't have enough time to do this, and the house was really on the brink of fire, due to faulty electrical wiring. As far as I understand, you and your renovations do not ask the people very often whether they want to move and whether they are satisfied with the quality of the wreck, into which you voluntarily and forcibly move people. And at the expense of the Maidan, Russia had its own revolution and such that Ukrainians have a rest, so stop mocking the people, you would not regret that ... Messrs. Chubaisoids

          Chabad Lubavitch: Plans for Russia. The original text of Menachem M. Schneerson's speech is given

          A Slav, a Russian, can be destroyed, but never conquered. That is why this seed is subject to elimination, and at first - to a sharp reduction in its numbers.
          If we recall history, then we must admit that these lands are the ancestral lands of the ancient Jewish Khazaria, that is, Israel, captured by Kievan Rus in the XNUMXth century. The Slavs are temporary guests here and are subject to eviction.
          We will return this territory and create on these fertile lands the Great Khazaria - a Jewish state, as we created Israel 50 years ago, pushing the Palestinians out. Some of the Israelis will move here, and we will drive the Slavic far north, beyond Moscow. There will be a small northern territory - a reservation with a compact population, a reservation similar to the Indians in America. "

      One gets the impression that the people just think like cattle that it will eventually spill over into another revolution.

      how tired of reading such moans. Aren't you tired yet, warrior?
      How much to argue with you that you will endure and moan further and will not go to the revolution?

      although you are a warrior, you are not sure of your words and the revolution. Because you know - your revolution is under the table with a fist fight - so who else, if not you, know that you will lose the sport, because you are already used to moaning and enduring the cut.

      Therefore, of course, we won't be able to argue.

    Yes, and some of the leaders of the Russian Federation said that it is not even cost-effective to put out fires there. This is CO2.

    Great, we will plant greenery on 1/6 of the planet, assuming that the remaining 5/6 will pay us for theirs. But 5/6 is unlikely to be. The West is sure to deny us this desire with the next sanctions.

    The idea is interesting, it belongs to the category of searching for new niches for generating income, but it is indirectly related to science.
    The main source of oxygen is not forests - oceans, seas and other expanses of water.
    All plants consume oxygen during the day, and at night they release waste products - CO2.
    The benefits of woodland are similar to carpets, which are good dust collectors and harbor many different bacteria and microorganisms.
