"Global Warming And Lessons from Living in Space" a talk at the next
Houston Climate Protection Alliance meeting on Sunday February 1st,
1:15pm. Michael Lutomski, Risk Manager for the International Space
Station in NASA will give the talk. Mike has had a calling to face
the climate disruption challenge and so has prepared this slide
show. Mike says the risk management concepts he uses for the
International Space Station apply to thinking about the various forms
of climate disruption that are possible. Mike says that on the
International Space Station waste and water must be recycled and so
have valuable lessons for our life on Spaceship Earth. Mike will be
representing only himself during this presentation.
After Mr. Lutomski's talk, we'll have a brief round table discussion
on solutions to climate change. These include energy efficiency, 4th
generation nuclear power plants and soil carbon
sequestration. More carbon is currently stored in the soil than in
the air and all plants. When charcoal is added to the soil, it is
essentially a permanent sequestration and improves soil fertility. If
10% of the annual growth in plant matter were charred and added to
the soil, humanity could zero out the climate impact of our fossil fuel use.
At the end of the meeting we will review action opportunities
available in Congress and the Texas Legislature.
