Bruce along time ago someone told me half the mass of a tree is in the roots. I have never dug them all up to see if this is true or not. But to your question yes the biomass needs to be sustainably harvested. But I always figure the roots and carbon which is left over in the form of tar or whatever you get that is cleaned out of a gasifer is all net positive carbon removed from the atmosphere. At the end of the day even if you only count it as carbon neutral it is a huge improvement. Especially for those of us who have the wood on our land and can harvest it ourselves. I was just thinking of a comment Wayne made in one of his videos I watched about a year ago. It was along the lines of once the tree dies the wood will release the CO2 anyway the question with wood gasification is simply do we use that carbon to do useful work first or simply let it rot away.
Hey Dan, While I’m not one who believes that we need less co2 in the atmosphere, I think the theory is that if you use carbon that is already in the atmospheric cycle (in the form of trees) then you are not adding more carbon ( so called sequestered carbon) to that cycle from the petroleum reserves. If I understand Wayne correctly, using the logic from that theory, he gets down the road basically on sunshine alone…
Here is another (Long!) video: Friday Flaring!
Excellent videoing Mike. I enjoyed seeing it all over again, great memories.
Nice work Mike Renolds you made the argoes meeting real and complete, hope you can make it next year, going by all the pics and vidios you sure was bussy makeing the filming. Thanks Mike. Renolds.
What Kevin said , Thanks a bunch Mike .
awesome job there mike
Ok, i am home now on my computer, having time to upload the 360º clips
Uncut, but enjoy anyway
I will find a way to upload the 360º pictures to
Use your mouse to swirl around …
Driving shotgun with Wayne… what could someone wish for more ?
Never saw that kind of film before! Love it! It feels as if you are there, eaven better!
Thank you Koen, 360* video viewing is great. I could see what Wayne was doing when he was driving down the road with the controls in his truck.
Thanks Koen, I love it. Wayne’s comment sure made me laugh “even if it’s not warmed up yet there’s still enough power to navigate the fair grounds” and one second later almost burning rubber
Me too my ride doesent do that on petrol
I like the 360 film. Never seen that before. Real cool.
I am with kristijan, on that one my truck wont run that good on old school carurator.?
This was on another stick… firing up the gasifier on the back of the truck with Wayne Keith
Thanks for the videos Koen . Some real fancy filming
That kind of 360* videoing would be the solution to the no distraction devices law we have in the State of Washington. Set it up on a mount turn it on and drive. I like it.
yup, but i just don’t want to post the clip where we broke the 110mph marker…
Good morning Koen
I must admit the 110 mph is not an honest speed . It took a tail wind and a down hill grade
Thanks much for the 360 degree videos .
In the first video I can turn the picture to your face at 3-4 minutes and see a big smile .
