ANYTHING made from hydrocarbon fossil fuels,
could be made from organic carbohydrates!

We can use biomass to create organic coal for powering our electric plants - using Pyrolysis, which is a thermochemical conversion technology used to produce energy from organic biomass.

"Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country." — Thomas Jefferson

"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?" — Henry Ford

Organic Hemp BIOMASS is Green Energy!

Biomass vs. Fossil Fuels
Biomass are plants (like hemp, corn, sugarcane) grown to generate electricity or produce biofuel, plus plant or animal matter used for production of fibers, chemicals, or heat. Plastics from biomass, like some recently developed to dissolve in seawater, are made the same way as petroleum-based plastics, are actually cheaper to manufacture and meet or exceed most performance standards.

The existing commercial biomass power generating industry in the United States, which consists of approximately 1,700 MW (megawatts) of operating capacity actively supplying power to the grid, produces about 0.5% of the U.S. electricity supply. Biologically produced alcohols are ethanol, propanol, and butanol. The competition in the biomass arena includes monopolies like COAL, OIL, fossil fuel burners, and Monsanto's alfalfa crops.

Because hemp is a weed, it grows fast and it grows dense. That makes hemp ideal for biomass use including fodder (livestock feed), or even burned as fuel. "Anything made from a hydrocarbon can be made from a carbohydrate."

We can use biomass to create organic coal for powering our electric plants - using Pyrolysis, a thermochemical conversion technology used to produce energy from biomass. It involves the heating of organic materials in the absence of reagents, especially oxygen, to achieve decomposition. When pyrolysis takes place in the presence of water, it is called hydrous pyrolysis.


Hemp WAS the 1st "Billion Dollar Crop"

Mechanically Harvesting Hemp Crop
Hemp was called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, February 1938.

Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article entitled 'The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.' It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

In the 1930s, innovations in farm machinery would have caused an industrial revolution when applied to hemp.

This single resource could have created millions of new jobs generating thousands of quality products. Hemp, if not made illegal, would have brought America out of the Great Depression.

It is reported that the colonist were not eager to grow hemp, however the European motherland wanted hemp, and cultivation was deemed mandatory. The Puritans at Jamestown grew hemp, as part of their contract with the Virginia Company. Jean Talon at the order of France Quebec colony minister, confiscated all thread the colonist possessed and forced them to buy it back from him with hemp. Talon supplied the seeds to farmers, which had to be reimbursed after hemp crops were harvested. Mandatory cultivation of hemp continued throughout the New World, the General Court in 1637 at Hartford Connecticut, and the Massachusetts courts in 1639 ordered all families to plant one teaspoon of hemp seed. "that we might in time have supply of linen cloth among ourselves." Several colonies passed legal tender laws, hemp was so valued it was used to pay taxes.
