The media in the last few years have consistently stressed the need to cut down on Carbon emissions, a beneficial act of course, but removing carbon from the atmosphere which is already present seems an all together better strategy.
The tech to remove carbon from the atmosphere already exists but scaling up to the required capacity is financially prohibitive.
Nori seems to have found an answer, create a new pathway for voluntary carbon sequestration via regenerative farming systems.
Enter Nori. We’re a platform that is unlike any other carbon market that precedes us. We’re not just building a better market for corporations to offset their emissions. That’s not thinking big enough. What we’re making is an API for reversing climate change.
The platform runs on top of blockchain technology, transparent and immutable. Buying carbon removal is easily performed on their site as well as the option to act as a supplier or verifier.
Every day activities can be potentially off-set by paying for the removal of equal quantities of any carbon you’ve created .
Imagine placing an order on Amazon, and then in real-time Amazon pays for removing the emissions required to deliver that product to your door. Or you take an Uber/Lyft ride, and at the end of the ride a sponsor plays an ad in the app and they automatically remove the emissions from that ride. Carbon removal should be invisible and happen automatically in the background of everyday life.
We ALL need to help redress the balance of climate change, this gem on Product Hunt I think can empower any of us to do just that, in our own little way.
By the way, who knew about “no till cropping system”? Years old farming practice which is ecologically superior in every way to modern hard steel tillage, things you learn eh?
