Examples of Large Scale Bamboo Ideology

  • Drawdown
      • An international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers has come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change
      • New York Times Bestseller
      • The most comprehensive plan to alleviate the world from climate change 
      • Their mission is to help the world reach “Drawdown”— the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping catastrophic climate change — as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.
        • “Bamboo is planted on 33.52 million hectares today. We assume that it will be grown on an additional 69.8-174.3 million hectares of degraded forest lands. Our carbon sequestration calculations include both living biomass and long-lived bamboo products, with an annual rate of 2.03 tons of carbon per hectare, resulting in a total of 8.3-21.3 gigatons of carbon dioxide sequestered by 2050. An initial investment of $52-162 billion and lifetime operational cost of $566-1.444 Trillion could yield a lifetime net profit of $1.707-4.348 Trillion. When bamboo is substituted for aluminum, concrete, plastic, or steel, there can be significant avoided emissions; however, these additional benefits are not included.”
        • “Bamboo rapidly sequesters carbon in biomass and soil, taking it out of the air faster than almost any other plant, and can thrive on inhospitable degraded lands—the ideal place to put bamboo to work.”
