Pollution and Forest Fires Destroying the air?

Plant Hemp!

Forests are in flames. The air pollution from artificial industry and carbon emissions being dumped to the atmosphere has catastrophic effects felt the most today in third world nations. According to the yearly State of the Global Air Report published by the Health Effects Institute (HEI), 95 percent of the world ’s inhabitants are breathing unhealthy air.

It’s quite simple to check at the world and the way it’s going with fear and dread. But, I believe that hope still exists.

What we will need to do is examine all the options to find a game changer to save Earth and reverse the damage we have done… I think we ought to look to cannabis.

I am really being serious and I don’t mean this with any disrespect at all. Forest fires displace tens of thousands of people each year and air pollutionrelated death rates climb at speeds that are horrifying; I know this. However, cannabis could work in a variety of ways and considering the state of the environment, it’s time to look at this seriously.

Cannabis acts as a carbon sink

Our biggest natural carbon would be soil, the plants and the sea. Thanks to the rise in greenhouse gasses and deforestation, a cycle of climate change has been sped up. So, in order to clean the air we will need to plant hemp EVERYWHERE.

A research on The Use of Industrial Hemp in Carbon Farming was conducted by James Vosper BSCHons, FRGS in GoodEarth Resources PTY Ltd.. The study was conducted to help the Austrailian Government reduce their global emissions and what was found was the perfect solution environmentally and economically.

Hemp works among the best plant carbon sinks due to its growth rate, molecular makeup and the biomass, or weight, of the cannabis stalks.

The cellulose material in industrial hemp is extremely high and it gets displaced with a lot of the carbon it takes out of the atmosphere.

Through photosynthesis, that carbon permanently bonds to the molecules, thus, any concern about contaminating its surrounding environment is totally eliminated. The procedure for c02 displacement from hemp is so notable and indisputable, it can be measured by weight in dry stalk left out.

Additionally, this hemp may still be used.

The chemical makeup of cannabis is truly amazing and we could use it to replace all oil based and plastic products. From the moment it is planted, hemp will start removing c02 in atmosphere and the soil . These fibers may be used in everything from building materialshousehold items, cosmetics and even in cars.

BMW has already begun producing faster cars using hemp for replacement components. After all, better fuel efficiency is produced by a car that is lighter.

I will admit that to a conservative person averting cannabis, seeing hemp plants filling each green space might be a bit hard to process favorably.

But, Vancouver Island is becoming drier and the fires keep on burning. The climate and the damage that’s been done to the planet’s state is unacceptable.
