Coming back to hemp should be the good idea. Oil and wood have

before oil. It is the plant that the human have the most cultivated,
with maize and wheat, since a very long time. The idea that it is
something dangerous is a total complete recent construct, and has
only been a Trojan horse for bandits (probably the one losing the

Any idea how much land would be required to grow sufficient hemp
to supply the millions of barrels that our civilization requires? How
much fertilizer? How much labor? Have you seem the quantity of energy
that is required to turn corn into fuel. for example? The problem is
that hemp and other biomass fuel idea are simply too expensive in
terms of energy and man hours to replace petrofuels.
Oh! If wiki says so ...
Note that I did not say that only hemp is needed, nor did I condemn
entirely oil and coke. I am a realist. But Ford did the calculus, and
for a very long time, if hemp would have just be continued to be used,
their would have been a drastic harm reduction, possibly ecological.
Between possibly bad and certainly worst, we have to choose the
possibly bad, but we know that unscrupulous special interest made the
decisions, and that is the problem. Well the real problem is that we
tolerate that and that most people buy the media talk without
thinking, the real problem is the "boss is right" routine implemented
in many mammals. Our brain evolves less quickly that our ideas and
A realist... OK.
