Biochar means that we do not need artificial chemical fertilizers.  And since the plants are stronger, they are able to resist pests, so we do not need pesticides.  Biochar stops erosion, and stops fertilizer runoff.

Land based wind energy is THE cheapest way to make electricity.  Right now.  And solar PV is close behind, as the cost is dropping quickly.

There are very good reasons to not like GMO's that are not scientific objections.  The main one being that GMO's are mainly a way for Monsanto to impose monopoly control.  And factory farming with artificial fertilizer and pesticides and herbicides - are horrible for the soil, and are a huge contributor to climate change.
