HempFlax’ Challenge


HempFlax will wager 100.000 euros to anyone who can provide proof to the contrary of the following proposition.

‘If the greenhouse effect were to be reversed by a ban on all fossil fuels and their derivatives, or if their use were to come to an end, and no more trees were allowed to be felled in order to prevent further deforestation, then there would be one natural resource able to supply the greater part of the world’s demand for products such as paper, food, textiles and construction material. This annually renewable resource can also provide energy to the industry, transport and the home. Meanwhile, the soil and the atmosphere on Earth can be restored and pollution reduced. This sustainable resource does it all at one time and is an old acquaintance: cannabis – hemp.’

You are a consumer, retailer, manufacturer, banker, politician, journalist, human being. If you do not refute the above proposition, taking responsibility for the environment will be your duty too. By effectively supporting hemp as you go. Help HempFlax.

Sounds like a good deal.

You won't see my spending my time to get this 100.000 though. I think I'm better off working for it.

There are more people doing this no? I heard Jack Herer is in it and the Hanf Haus.

You go guys!

I thought you were talking about ocean kelp, right until you said hemp. I don't think you can smoke kelp though.

Wouldn't water be another renewable source of energy.  We've all heard of hydro electricity and I believe that vehicle companies are looking into alternative sources of energy and hydrogen powered cars are one of them.  Also, solar powere is renewable. 

As for construction material and paper and such...I don't believe of any other plant matter that can serve these purposes.  The governments around the world would probably rather make us build our houses out of mud & clay and have us hunt for food.

I also think that if this scenerio WERE to happen that all hell would break loose and government and law enforcement as we know it would come to almost a halt and we could get away with a lot more things.

Hemp.. The perfect survivor, adaptor and conqueror.. And I can not claim you guys to be wrong. but.. (excuse my technical-english)..  If broken dow in pieces, a manifest has to be true in all aspect.. And I believe your only right in most, not all of the described.. Its very true that hemp as an annual plant could be the primarily energysource for most purposes. Its using the energy from the sunlight to bind and create its cells whoms "building-bricks" its get from the soil. These cells are very consistent of power, obtainin a inner cell-preasure reaching 3t, why plant somewhat easily penetrate asfalt, concrete etc.. The plant is pure life, strong, and full off energy. When dead, the plant still contain this energy.

There is no way nobody can claim an actual use of any source of any kind of energy.. Seen by physicslaw, one can only talk about a transferring from one place, or item, to another. Or one form to another..

This energy is realeased again when burned..So much is true.. But its also a perfect accumulator-plant, why many beleive its good for cleanup of soil.. These people (u guys)forget about one detail, and thats why your wrong.. 

Since the plant accumulate pollution as well as energy, this pollution is released whith the energy when burned(or "decomposed" in any other matter)and we therfor havent solved the problem, only pushed it away.. and in that case its no different from fossil-fuel.. (if the case is a junk-yard you now wheres located, maybe even worse since you spread the problem, I dont believe in dilution)The main advantage is therfor ONLY the fact that no further fossil pollution is provided to Gaia. If burned without filters, smoke particels will still be realesed into the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouseeffect further,- same as with fossils.. So guys.. You where wrong about the athmosphere..

The cannabis plant has been used for extracting pollutants from the soil in a few cases thet I have heard of. Cannabis also produces more oxygen than any other plant of its size. And has provided more warm fuzzy feelings than any other plant that I have ever -uhh- worked with...
When you lose something, there are almost infinite places where it is not, and only one place where it is. The odds of finding it are not good

That's what were all waiting for no? A complete turn around?

It's obvious we have a lot of changes coming. This Tsunami was not just that! Did you hear that in wells in Virginia water levels went up and down about 3 feet at time of the quake... for about 5 hours...

Lets see what the years 2005 brings us

I think Hemp will absolutely breakthrough again and most likely become a regularly used resource again by many governments. Simple reason being that they can not keep denying it's versatile use NOR it's benificial uses for our daily products like paper (US dollar bill), clothing, fertilizer, medicine, construction materials, oil, etc, etc...

Use Hemp & Spread the Word!

Can any of you book worms answer this for me and its a serious question,

When a volcano erupts doesnt it release a collasal amount more pollution then the burning of fossil fuels ever has (cfc excluded which are a serious problem)?

Excuse my ignorance but its just a thought.

Jeff,

 

As with all things that are natural and contaminate the Earth, a volcanoes spew is also self filtered/brokendown by the Earth's own imune system as such.  Also, the amount of pollutants given of given off by the burning of fossil fuels is thousands of times more contaminating to our atmosphere than what's given off by a massive Volcanic eruption.  For the majority of contaminent given off by erruptions that spreads the globe over or afar, is mere ash.  Lava just takes the path of least resistance to the peripherii of the base of the volcano.  Suphur, Monoxides and DiOxides given off by even the most massive of Erruptions is but a shadow that is given off worldwide win one month of fossil fuel combustion. 

 

Where many are tricked into thinking it is the other way around, is that ash and sulphur is visible, wheras Monoxides and all other gases given off by fossil fuel combustion are mainly invisible.

 

Notwithstanding the enormous damage which is created by emptying out massive underground deposits of crude oil.  For they are there for a purpose, and it is not for us to burn.  For as with all contained inside the earth, are there for the purpose of 'physical and chemical Equilibium' for the earths well being, and have taken millions and millions of years to reach their sufficient natural stability/equal,  with respect to itself and ALL surrounding heavenly bodies.  As all heavenly bodies are 'relative and interconnected' - the closer they are with respect to one and other, the more delicate this relativity and the easier it is to upset it.  But you will not have any 'petroleum Magnate controlled media'(which is all media), admit this openly and regularly to the masses for it's against their vested intrests.  As is the forced banning of all Cannabis products by them at the turn of the last century in an effort to force the world into using all petroluem byproducts such as Nylon, instead of hempFibres. 

 

It is these same entities that have brought up the entire world into believing that such things as indescriminant overly consumption of anything on earth is a good thing, as there are other things that are just as bad or worse - which in reality aren't.  It is no wonder that we are now beginning to see the effects of such actions onto the Earth.  Global warming is now a scientifically proven fact. The frequency of natural calamities and disasters is at an all time high and increasing all the time.  What we have experianced so far is but a warning from mother nature, and not the last of them.  They will get worse before they get better - as independant authorites on this subject will tell you.

 

So it not only bad enough to be contaminating the earth's atmosphere with fossil fuel derived vapours and smoke, but the cavities alone which we leave in the earth after extracting the crude oil means that tectonic plates spanning oceans and continents, as well as the other surrounding grounds, are made unstable - and hence the more occuring slippages/re-settle'ings resulting in the initiation of tsunamis, earthquakes and tremors.

 

So it is bad to burn fossil fuels for more than just one reason - let us not forget that Global warming also is a rsult of the same issue.

 

All in all Jeff, I wonder what else the world holds in stall for use for using the crude oils?

 

 

 

I look at the world as all do, but I see something different

Always do RIGHT; this will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
