Devesh 🐝 Bhatt thanks for taking the time to reply and for the very informative perspective. I agree "we have to do better at truly understanding the present set of circumstances associated with this and related issues (Food, Energy, Water, Population) with an eye towards the collective future of mankind and our earth." The sad thing is that in many respects we have been watching the scientific and economic yin and yangism on the subject since 1896 when Svante Arrhenius, a Swedish scientist was the first to claim that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming. To me it is not an East thing. It is not a West thing, It is not a young thing. It is not an old thing. What it is, is a ONE EARTH thing. It is a journey to enlightenment and understanding before it is too late. Thank you again and all the best to you. Keep making a difference; one person, one step, one generation, one tree, and one river at a time.

Thanks Michael O'Neil. Yes it is a carbon sink and the materials are entirely carbon neutral. Just a bit of steel in the foundations. The straw is rendered in a mixture of lime plaster and buffalo dung.

Claire L 🐝 Cardwell ; Great post. Does it also constitute a carbon sink? What is it about Hazel that makes it the common material for stakes? There are specialist building companies here in NZ. eg http://strawmark.co.nz/

Julie Yes, I agree. It's patience for the availability and affordability I lack. ..
