Police identified the gunman as a 50 year old man who opened fire at the back of the hall during a speech by separatist Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois at the Metropolis auditorium.

The suspect, who was arrested outside the auditorium,

He was heard to shout English are waking up! in French before being arrested, while TV footage showed a pistol and rifle at the scene.

Police said a 45 year old man had died and a man in his 30s had been wounded in the shooting.

Ms Marois, whose party favours the independence of French speaking Quebec from Canada, was heard to remark going on? as she was whisked off the stage by her security detail.

She later returned to the stage to ask the crowd to peacefully disperse.

The bright prospect of biochar

The bright prospect of biocharEnthusiasts say that biochar could go a long way towards mitigating climate change and bring with it a host of ancillary benefits. But others fear it could do more harm than good. Kurt Kleiner reports. At the forefront of a carbon sequestration technology that proponents say offers a rare win win win environmental opportunity, Fourniers company Biochar Engineering in Golden, Colorado, manufactures machines that turn biomass into charcoal, or biochar.

Spread on soil, biochar can keep CO2 out of the atmosphere while improving soil fertility and boosting productivity. In addition, gases released in the charcoal making process can be used to make biofuels that are more sustainable than those currently on the market. Char happens to be the one thing that represents a solution to all of these factors together. Its a unique opportunity, Fournier says.

But while enthusiasts are pushing to have biochar recognized as an official means of offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, others remain cautious. At best we know too little, say critics, and at worst using biochar to sequester carbon could ultimately lead to unintended consequences, including the destruction of virgin forests to make way for plantations.

Biochar certainly has potential, says David Wardle, a soil scientist at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala. But its premature to be already including it in carbon accounting. Maybe it really is an answer. But we dont know that yet.

Though the idea of using biochar for climate change mitigation is relatively new, its origins extend back to the pre Columbian era, when humans first made terra preta in Portuguese, dark earth soils in the central Amazon basin. According to archaeologists, the rich, black and fertile terra preta was created by adding a mixture of bone, manure and charcoal to the otherwise relatively infertile soil over many years. The charcoal believed to be the key ingredient is 70 times more concentrated in terra preta than in surrounding soils and is formed by heating biomass in an oxygen poor or oxygen free environment. Some of the charcoal in Amazon terra preta soils has persisted for thousands of years, back to when people first started this practice. Its persistence has attracted the attention of research scientists who think that it could be used to lock away carbon for a similarly long time in the future, keeping it out of the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas.

You can get charcoals that are tens of thousands of years old, or even older, says Chris Turney, a geographer at the University of Exeter and director of the start up Carbonscape. With headquarters in Blenheim, New Zealand, Carbonscape is developing a unique approach to producing biochar. The company is soon to launch in the United Kingdom. If you want a very simple method of fixing carbon in a relatively stable form for potentially tens of thousands of years, charcoal is a good way of doing it, Turney says.

The recent surge of interest in biochar as both a commercial venture and an academic challenge was evident at a one day workshop held last month at the University of Edinburgh and sponsored by the UK Biochar Research Centre. When I wrote the grant proposal to fund this, I could find only about four or five people in the UK who were interested, says Stuart Haszeldine, the geologist and biochar researcher who organized the event. Now last week we were turning people away. We had 80 people attend, and we could have had 150.

As a solution to escalating emissions, biochar is certainly promising. Every year,
cards against humanity cards, human activity results in the release of somewhere between 8 and 10 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide. Of that, several billion tonnes are soaked up by the oceans and land, leaving around 4.1 billion tonnes in the atmosphere.

That number is dwarfed by the 60.6 billion tonnes of carbon that terrestrial plants absorb during photosynthesis every year. A similar amount goes back into the atmosphere through plant respiration. But if a fraction of that carbon could be stored in the soil, it would mitigate climate change to some degree. Any organic matter that is taken out of the rapid cycle of photosynthesis . and put instead into a much slower biochar cycle is an effective withdrawal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, says Johannes Lehmann, a soil scientist at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York,
words against humanity?, who has spent years studying terra preta and biochar.

Lehmann and colleagues think that the potential benefits could be huge. Of the more than 60 billion tonnes of carbon taken up annually by photosynthesis, around ten per cent eventually becomes available as agricultural residue such as corn and rice stalks, or forestry residue such as branch and leaf litter, as well as animal waste. If all 6 billion tonnes were put through pyrolysis the heating process that turns biomass into charcoal 3 billion tonnes of biochar would be produced every year, reducing atmospheric carbon emissions by the same amount1. That would offset a substantial proportion of the 4.1 billion tonnes of excess carbon dioxide that accumulates annually in the atmosphere.

And since biochar manufacture has the added benefit of creating liquid fuel as a useful by product, theres even greater potential for mitigating climate change than from sequestering CO2 alone. According to Lehmanns calculations, a third of a tonne of biofuel could be produced for every tonne of biomass used. If those biofuels replaced fossil fuels in transport, for example it would reduce carbon emissions by an additional 1.8 billion tonnes per year.

Tim Lenton, professor of Earth system science at the University of East Anglia, UK, recently rated biochar as one of the best technological fixes for cooling the planet. According to Lentons analysis of 17 geoengineering options2, biochar has the potential to sequester almost 400 billion tonnes of carbon by 2100 and to lower atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations by 37 parts per million. Advoctaes, including Lehmann, admit that the real numbers will probably be much smaller. Haszeldine, for instance, says that 1 billion tonnes of carbon sequestered per year by 2030 is a reasonably conservative estimate of biochars potential. Even if its only 500 tonnes of carbon a year, its useful, says Haszeldine. If its a million or a billion tonnes a year, thats significant.

Burnt offeringMost biochar making technologies use heat produced by the biomass itself to form the charcoal. But Turney, the Exeter professor and Carbonscape director, is backing a slightly different approach, one that uses industrial scale microwaves. He says the idea was inspired by cooking accident in his teenage years, when he put a potato in the microwave for 40 minutes and it turned into charcoal. Although using microwave technology has the disadvantage of requiring electricity, the process will result in twice as much carbon being stored in the soil as is emitted as greenhouse gas.

Biochar certainly has potential. Maybe it really is an answer. But we dont know that yet.

David Wardle

A much lower tech approach is to promote the use of charcoal making cook stoves to the roughly 2 billion people who rely on wood for fuel. The cook stoves, produced by a number of companies, use wood or other organic materials as fuel and burn only the gases and oils, leaving charcoal behind. The result is a cleaner burning flame that gives off less smoke, and the leftover biochar can potentially be applied to soil.

Fournier of Biochar Engineering says that he became involved in biochar because of its mitigation potential. But he thinks its value as an addition to the soil will ultimately drive its production. Right now his company manufactures relatively small biochar units for researchers, capable of making 50 kilograms of biochar per hour. He says, however, that the real market will probably be in medium sized units that can produce 250 to 300 kilograms per hour but are still small enough to be packed into a standard cargo container and shipped anywhere in the world. Fournier expects individual farmers or local entrepreneurs to begin buying the units and using them to make biochar for agricultural purposes, with co production of energy a secondary benefit. These small operators might decide to forego biofuel production altogether, says Fournier, and concentrate on making biochar. The extra heat generated by the char making process could be used for warming a building or for industrial processes, however, and possibly for producing electricity.

While charcoal for agricultural use is now selling for about US$500 per tonne, that same tonne of charcoal, at current prices, is worth only about US$50 if sold for offsetting emissions. Even if the price of carbon offsets rose to US$100 per tonne of CO2, that tonne of biochar would still be worth only US$350 in offsets,
online cards against humanity, says Fournier. In fact, he says, the economics of biochar will be determined by a combination of its value as a soil additive, as a carbon offset measure and as an energy source. The level at which they are promoting this could result in enormous land use change issues, says Rachel Smolker, a biologist and anti biochar activist who helped organize a petition in April signed by 143 non profit groups protesting what they called a charred earth policy. The petition came as a reaction to an effort by 11 African countries and biochar proponents to have the United Nations consider biochars eligibility as an official means for nations and companies to offset their emissions under international regulations.

It would require huge areas of land to be turned into plantations, warns Smolker. Carbonscape, for one, has suggested that forests might be planted, harvested for charcoal, and then replanted. For instance, the company says, if the 200 million hectares of forest in the United States that are harvested for timber were instead used for biochar, replanted, and harvested again, each rotation would reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide levels by ten parts per million. Others, such as Lehmann, have proposed replacing winter wheat crops with switchgrass that would be turned into biochar.

Smolker and Almuth Ernsting, who works with Biofuelwatch, a UK environmental organization, are specifically concerned that a market for biochar would encourage the destruction of tropical forests, much as a market for biofuel has encouraged forest destruction for palm oil plantations. Ernsting estimates that sequestering even a relatively modest 1 billion tonnes of carbon a year would require that 500 million hectares of land be devoted to biochar plantations3. By comparison, there are an estimated 1.5 billion hectares of tropical forest remaining in the world.

Look, the boys tried very hard. Maybe I could have made changes but I was happy and the boys can be proud of themselves tonight.

I dont want to make excuses as we had a smashing bunch of players out there and I think we were still in the game up until the 89th minute. There was no way we could out pass Germany. We put in a good performance here in an intimidating atmosphere,

How to Choose the Right Golf Clubs,
cards against humanity in store?

Know the level of your game. For example, if you are a beginner, you may not need to buy a full set of clubs at this point. Rather, you might consider a so called half set that consists of a couple of woods, a few irons and a putter. But if you are an intermediate player like the majority of golfers, you should probably focus your attention on clubs that have a large sweet spot because you probably mishit a few shots during any given round. Or if you are an advanced player, defined as someone with a 10 handicap or less, look for golf clubs that are technologically superior to those you are currently using.

Have your clubs custom fit. For example, you may find out that the shafts of your current set are too stiff for your golf swing or that you would play better golf with clubs that were lighter. Also, you may find that you should buy clubs with shorter shafts for better control. Touring professionals have clubs with an average length of 44 inches,
cards against humanity all expansions, while off the rack clubs are 45 or 46 inches long. By having your new golf clubs custom fit, you will know that you have chosen clubs that match up well with your game and your swing.

Make sure your new clubs have the correct angle when you address the ball. Unless all your clubs lie flat at address, you will hit more errant shots. For instance,
which cards against humanity expansion is best, if the toe of a club is off the ground, a right handed player will usually miss the target to the left. But if the heel of the club is up, he or she will usually miss it to the right. If you have your new clubs custom fit, you will probably hit a few shots off a lie board, which will leave a mark on the sole of the club,
