Join Now: President Jill Stein’s Sticky Green New Deal: Hemp For Victory — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

It’s crunch time for Jill Stein’s Green Presidential campaign. If you want to help us win the Sticky Green Revolution, let’s put it into high gear!

Most people want a Third Party. Most people want Legalized Medical Marijuana. Most people want complete withdrawal from warmongering. Most people want restoration of our Human/Civil/Constitutional Rights. http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2011-12-12/third-party-poll/51866458/1 Still, our campaign is completely out of money. We need just 20 Stoner Donors in each state – the same amount of people who come together to smoke a pound of pot.

That number is based on each of the 20 people buying a $250 bag of Karma: If you usually buy a $250 or more bag of pot, then, this time give that money to Jill Stein’s campaign, and let’s get this Legalized once and for all, and get ourselves free. If you’re the kind of person that only buys a $60 bag, then give that $60 to Jill. But if you’re the one who buys an $800 bag, fork it over: We’re working for you!

The campaign has no money, but the Marijuana industry pulls in over a trillion dollars a year. We’re only asking for a drop in the bucket, in exchange for your freedom and dignity. And if we Elect Jill Stein, she won’t poison all the children in the world with Fracking, as Obama and Romney have promised to do.  https://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/donate

And don’t worry about missing a week of loyalty to your usual local grower, dealer, importer, or runner: When President Jill Stein removes Marijuana from Schedule One on Day One of the Stein Administration, Medical Marijuana will be Legal, and we can all start breathing easier! Beginning that first Legal day, the skills that our local and regional suppliers have will be very valuable, and they could have lots more customers.

The Jill Stein for President campaign is on the ballot in 32 states now, and in the next few days with your help, we could make another seven. Maybe even eight:

North Carolina’s ballot access laws are regressive, repressive, reprehensible, and wrong: 80,000 signatures! There’s a petition to ask North Carolina to be reasonable and let Jill on the ballot.  http://www.change.org/petitions/north-carolina-state-board-of-elections-add-jill-stein-representative-for-the-green-party And you can download the actual ballot access petition to sign it if you’re a North Carolina registered voter. If you do download the petition, please get people without internet access to sign it too, before you send it in (right away). You can download it here. http://www.ncgreenparty.org/ Here’s another petition from North Carolina. http://www.change.org/petitions/all-voters-join-the-green-party-and-support-jill-stein

We need to get lots of Virginia voter signatures really fast to get Jill on the ballot in that state. 415-425-3733. Please hurry!  http://www.vagreenparty.org/ballotaccess/ballotaccess2012.html Nebraska too. http://www.nebraskagreens.org/contact_us/  And Wyoming.  asunshinemoon@yahoo.com   We also need to hit it in Kentucky  (http://kygreenparty.org/), Alabama (http://www.alabamagreens.org/), North Dakota (https://www.facebook.com/greenpartynd), and Rhode Island (http://www.greens.org/ri/).

In November’s Presidential Election, if Jill Stein carries: (1) The states that now have Medical Marijuana; and (2) the states voting on it this year; and (3) just one more state, then she’ll be President, and we’ll be free. Forty-four of the 51 states are trying to Legalize Marijuana this year, and it’s on the ballot in ten. That means that we really have to rally those petition signers in North Dakota, where people will be voting on Marijuana this fall. Please help us reach the pot vote in North Dakota if you can.

This Election we have four Right-wing candidates with connections to the Koch brothers and to the Fracking industry: Obama, Romney, Ron Paul, and Gary Johnson. The first two also have very close connections to Bain Capital and to Central American Death Squads. It’s Koch versus pot, because the Kochs and their cohorts are in the business of denying Global Warming. That’s exactly what Obama, Romney, Paul, and Johnson are doing when they say that Fracking is legitimate science: They’re lying and denying.

Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant. That means more weight of Hemp can be grown per acre than any other plant. That means that it is the only way to combat Global Warming: Having the highest biomass, it is the one material in the world from which we can produce the most alcohol, and alcohol is a clean fuel that can power any internal combustion engine without causing Global Warming. That’s because alcohol (Ethanol) and other biofuels hold no Carbon at all, other than what the living plant absorbed from our atmosphere.

Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral and have Zero net Carbon emissions when burned. Hemp is also the richest source of biodiesel in the world, as the seeds need only be squeezed: They are 40% Diesel fuel. And, having the highest biomass, Hemp is also the richest source of “Natural” Gas, except the biogas that comes from Hemp – the same gas, Methane/CH4 – causes no Global Warming when burned, like Fracked Gas does, because mined and drilled “Natural” Gas comes from fossils whose constituents have long been out of our air and add lots of Carbon to it, while Hempen biogas holds only the Carbon that the living plants just absorbed – Carbon Neutral.

Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis that growing Hemp on 6% of our arable land can supply all of this country’s energy without causing Global Warming. Vote for Jill Stein. Legalize Marijuana. Make our Government stop denying Global Warming. We’ve got to do it now.  http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/

Breakthrough Swedish Hemp Energy Farming Study Corroborates Hemp Emperor Herer

1:42 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

from today’s edition of MaMaMoJo — the Massachusetts Marijuana Movement Journal:

Hemp Energy Farming Breakthrough Study –Corroborates Jack Herer’s Assertions

by Norman B (“Deviations from the Norm”)

Hot off the lab table: Five scientists working at Lund University in Sweden on October 31, 2010, published online their findings about the potential of Hemp as an energy crop. The findings support activist Jack Herer’s teachings, that through growing Hemp on a percentage of our available land, our society can switch to completely clean fuel that causes no Global Warming.

Emma Kreuger and Lovisa Bjornsson of the Lund U. Dept. of Biotechnology, the Budapest University of Technology & Economics Dept. of Applied Biotechnology & Food Science’s Balint Sipos and Guido Zacchi (both with the LU Dept. of Chemical Engineering), and Sven-Erik Svensson of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Dept. of Agriculture — Farming Systems, Technology & Product Quality in Alnarp completed the research just days ago, showing that every ten square kilometers (about 2.5 acres) of cultivated great Hemp yields about 3,000 liters (about 800 gallons) of Ethanol AND 3,000 cubic meters of Methane. Both Ethanol and Methane burn cleanly, causing no Global Warming. Methane left in the atmosphere, however, is a Greenhouse Gas many times as bad as Carbon Dioxide.

Jack famously guaranteed that devoting 6% of continental US land to growing Hemp could replace all our country’s energy usage. This study supports Jack Herer’s research. Links to a synopsis of the study, and to Jack Herer’s energy-and-climate research overview page follow below. Jack passed away a few months ago, and so is not here with us today to enjoy the triumph in new hope for our planet, but he knew it would come, if we activists pushed hard enough. Clean energy for all of Earth and an end to Global Warming are now within our grasp. We must keep pushing, and we must pause to assess and celebrate our progress.
