"Blue carbon," or carbon sequestered in marine environments, is a pretty new field of science. It covers carbon held in plant life like seaweeds, mangroves, seagrass meadows, and tidal marshes.
so basically anything run by Aquaman pic.twitter.com/xsReoiQbjV
There's a good general intro/review paper here.https://t.co/OYzfPuLcd1
Seaweeds (aka macroalgae) are probably the marine plants we have the most data on for carbon sequestration.
Bc it's twitter I'll refer to this group as "kelp" from here on bc kelp's such a heavy hitter in seaweed biomass. But also covers any macroalgae like Sargassum, Ulva, etc.
Yes and no
Americans tried to copy Lean from Toyota, immediately ran into problems w JIT tactics *because we were doing it wrong*
this applies to grass too https://t.co/i0auvuCBwL
Toyota spend decades. d e c a d e s. building supply chains to enable JIT.
If they had a steering column manufacturer they liked, but their plant was far away & made JIT difficult, Toyota talked that manufacturer into building a shop closer to the main Toyota plant.
You can't come home from a leadership retreat all fired up about JIT and just make it happen. It. takes. decades.
And yet that's exactly what Americans did, we try to use "JIT" without having the infrastructure or supply chain to support it.
YES. Historians & social scientists (of capitalism, ag, political history, EVERYTHING) treat agriculture like it's this special world apart from the rest of society. It's not- it's the foundation of modern society, & deserves every bit of critical treatment we can throw at it. https://t.co/I1cV5zg5mz
I haven't had a chance to read through that particular book but yeah there's something distinctively shitty about English-style agriculture that carried through the colonial process.

An old, very experienced crop scientist made an off-hand comment to me once in grad school that I'll never forget.
"English farmers visit their fields. German farmers work all day in their fields. Dutch farmers SLEEP in their fields."
