I like this but still think that charcoal burning is detrimental if we want 
to stop climate change. We produce 20 times more CO2 while making charcoal 
than we ever sequester whatever system we use. These days forest are already 
disappearing to make charcoal and that is madness. Stopping burning fossil 
fuels would be the only sure way combined with stopping deforestation. If 
you want to sequester carbon then plant trees and shrubs, increase biomass. 
(= living-mass)
That is permaculture or not?
