  1. Yes, I think the particular species of mallee that they use has a large root which will store carbon. Because of this, CO2 Australia’s projects meet standards of measurability, permanancy, verifiability and additionality that have given it certification under the govts ‘Greenhouse Friendly’ program. As far as I am aware, this is the only revegetation project in Australia to have recieved such certification. There are probably also environmental cobenefits from farmers planting mallee on their land.

    The Climate Change Group’s draft discussion paper recommends that the emissions trading scheme recognise abatement from eligible projects that occurs after 3 June 2007. This might be good tor CO2 Australia’s share price.

    Could political beliefs be more important than peer (not that kind of Peer) reviewed research for doctors, in deciding what to believe? Scary.
