Hey all, I have a question about when Ryan talks about a tree that is “energy positive” or “energy negative,” and am having a difficult time understanding this concept. Which side is positive or negative?
I’m wondering if it might be easier for me to think of it in terms of kinetic or potential energy. Kinetic meaning when the energy of an object in motion versus the potential energy of an object at rest. A tree growing is using kinetic energy while a tree in dormancy is in potential energy. Using this language, which is energy positive and which is negative?
