why hemp fuel is the best alternative


" Ahh, I was hoping you would ask me that. When Henry Ford began producing his famous Model-T's in the early 1900's he built the car to run on hemp gasoline which burned more cleanly and got better fuel efficiency than gasoline. He also constructed the car itself from a fiber type process from Hemp that allowed him to mold into any shape he wanted. This process created a structure that was TEN times more impact resistant (stronger) than steel. One of the by products of this process was an oil that did not break down when heated which he used as a lubricant for all the moving parts! "

" So you see, Henry Ford was not only going to be able to mass produce his cars using a renewable energy source, Hemp only takes about five months to grow to maturity, but he was going to be able to provide the fuel, oil and manufacture of these cars themselves from one source that didn't pollute the environment, while providing jobs for millions of people, not too mention all the farmers that would be able to sell to him, as Hemp grows in every state in the US including Alaska! "

An excerpt from Did The Illegal Criminalization of Marijuana Lead To The Downfall of America?

In our present environment of unstable and unpredictable oil prices, there is now a need for alternative energy sources. Hemp fuel is the best option in terms of providing affordable green energy. The price of crude oil is continuously rising. Crude oil is also fueling a lot of international conflicts and wars, as countries scramble to secure this scarce commodity. Fuel harvested from food crops such as corn, leads to a price increase of the general food stock. This is due to fact that people will have to compete with the energy companies in order to buy corn. Growing hemp for fuel will cost less than an oil drilling venture.

The types of fuels that can be derived from the hemp plant are bio-diesel, methanol, methane, acetic acid and charcoal. These fuels are created by using a process called pyrolysis. This process converts hemp plants into fuel by applying heat without the presence of air. This method can be used to produce fuel from almost any plant stock. However hemp provides the highest feed to fuel ratio. This process releases less pollution into the air and soil.

Green energy sources are an important factor in this day and age of global warming and rising sea levels. Hemp fuel releases less hydrocarbons, sulfur oxides, sulfates, carbon monoxides and nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere. The carbon dioxide and other gases released by hemp fuels are easily recycled by plants. This in turn minimizes the greenhouse effect that is caused by burning other forms of fuel. Another benefit of hemp is the waste products left over after processing the hemp plants for fuel can be used as fertilizers. The waste products are 100% bio-degradable and will not affect the soil and water systems.

Hemp fuel can also be used to provide jobs and resolve social and economic problems faced by communities. Hemp fuel requires less investment compared to other fuel production models. Hemp plants can be easily grown using modern sustainable farming techniques. The overall impact on the environment is minimal. Hemp fuel will become the new source of energy for the future.

Wonderful and I agree. We keep struggling to get this fuel that is reeking havoc on our environment and yet we have the means to do better. Why aren't we searching for other means to source fuel? Look at Jamaica, the land or wood and water, our Island in the sun. We should have been one of the first to utilize solar energy yet we allow a system monopolized by politicians and commercialization to determine that we pay high electricity bills while our sun energy lies to waste.

Nuff respect Shaw, There is no reason for oil drilling. There are more affordable means of creating electricity.

very nice article, but until a critical mass of people decides to change, babylon will keep the current system running. humanity could live in abundance, but you can only make profit on scarcity.

Respect Viktor. You cannot make money when there is abundance. You are right, most people would have to realize that the best option is cleaner and cheaper.
