Eric Toensmier is involved in this. i agree, it looks like a solid research based movement.
Did you read Eric's book The Carbon Farming Solution? There's a read through thread about it here on permies.

Not yet... but it's on the .. er, long list    I don't think he touches on biochar, though, in the book.  Looking forward to the book, 'Drawdown', to come out in 2017, I think.

Excellent project.  Eric Toensmeier does apparently discuss biochar in The Carbon Farming Solution.  https://permies.com/t/51864/books/Carbon-Farming-Solution-Eric-Toensmeier#452507

I just clicked on it, Rebecca, and went right to the website.  Maybe just google 'Drawdown Paul Hawken' and you'll get there :)

Here's a link to an article in the Guardian about Hawken and the book, 'Drawdown'...  from 2014, when he first unveiled his plan..

I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
