The article examines the impact of the American Clean Energy and Security Act and the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act on wetland conservation and restoration in the U.S. It reveals the significant role of wetlands in predicting the environmental impacts of climate change and reducing storm surges that affect coasts. It cites prediction from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that temperatures may rise 4 to 11 degrees if greenhouse gas emission (GHGF) will not be reduced.

    Purpose: A potential means to diminish increasing levels of CO in the atmosphere is the use of pyrolysis to convert biomass into biochar, which stabilizes the carbon (C) that is then applied to soil. Before biochar can be used on a large scale, especially in agricultural soils, its effects on...
