Thank you Scott McClellan for telling the truth. Thank you NBC for giving him the safe venues of the TODAY SHOW, COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMAN, HARDBALL and the soon to be broadcast MEET THE PRESS interview.
Scott McClellan finally said what most activists already knew. That the White House lied about the reasons to go to war in this century too.
Like Willie Nelson says "NO WAR REQUIRED."
There has been a lot of drama around keeping folks on toxic energy. It's time to write THE END our our suicide by environmental disaster.
Hemp scrubs the air of excess CO2 as it grows, has a short growing season, requires no toxic chemicals to grow, creates multi-purpose abundant crops, and burns clean as biofuel. Yet hemp is illegal and toxic energy is legal.
The way to stop war for oil is to stop it. Replace our demand for toxic energy with clean hemp biofuel, solar, wind, hydro and magnetic energies.
Please contact your elected and appointed officials and demand that they make it illegal to make nature illegal.
One more thing. Say a prayer that the press will have the courage to take the next step in this process of truth setting us free. The evidence is screaming that, like march to war, even 9/11 was an inside job.
The excuse used to get us into wars was 9/11. On 9/11 the military was on stand down, 4 planes were allowed to fly off course without intervention heading for major cities, and there were reports of explosions at the WTC that can be heard on recordings of the day. No airplane parts were found at the Pentagon nor Shanksville, the mayor quickly cleaned up of the WTC crime scenes of evidence yet left body parts that are still being found, and Dr. Steven Jones has information about thermite found at the WTC site. Yet we still are getting the government line that it was 19 lucky Arabs behind 9/11.
The American government has done a lot to keep us on toxic energy. It is up to us to get off of it and hemp is a great place to start.
How to hemp?
HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION by Richard M. Davis, founder and curator of the USA Hemp Museum, a private museum with a virtual wing is available and Davis's new book HEMP FOR VICTORY: THE WONDER HERB, about medical hemp, will be out shortly.

Al Gore is right. We can solve the problem of global warming.
Hemp can remove the excess CO2 we have in the atmosphere that is at cause for a big part of global warming. We still need to address methane, but hemp can have a powerful impact on removing the excess CO2.
This article is an echo from a great page we found on the We Can Solve It site, with a few thoughts added. The USA Hemp Museum has added a group there called HEMP FOR VICTORY to begin an international conversation on how to use hemp to solve the problem of global warming. Please come by and share what you know.
We've made nature illegal and wonder why we have a problem with the environment. The world has lost it's mind and the planet is telling us it's time to restore sanity.
Hemp is a sane choice to quickly solve the problem of global warming.
Simply stated, when the problem is too much CO2 in the atmosphere, the solution is to remove the excess CO2 to safe levels.
Hemp is a biomass champion that breathes in the excess CO2 as it grows and creates products that improve the quality of life.
In this forum there will be a lot of conversation of using hemp to scrub the air of excess CO2 as it grows. A question may arise about why this is important, with hemp being illegal and all. Why should we change the law to save ourselves?
The Problem as defined on another page on the site We Can Solve It:
"The concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is now 380 parts-per-million (ppm), 100 ppm higher than at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. But we can look back even further. By drilling into the deepest glacial ice we can measure CO2 deep into time. And this ice library shows more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than at any time in last 650,000 years.
"HEMP TO THE RESCUE - WITH A LOT OF HELP FROM HER FRIENDS
We're talking problem solving at the level of cause and effect.
The way to solve the excess CO2 portion of the global warming problem is to restore CO2 to safe levels with wide spread hemp growth, internationally, to remove the excess from the atmosphere.
Let the United Nations coordinate the wide scale growing. In addition to each nation participating, both the UN and nations can receive reasonable by the standards of the public, tax income from the new markets to sustain themselves. We anticipate the hemp trade boom will be a substantially needed boost to the world's economy.
Independently earned funding for the UN should help build the organization's independence in deciding the highest good for all concerned. Toxic energy should be illegal, unnecessary toxic activities stopped now. Shift to hemp biofuel and other non toxic, clean and/or free energy sources like hydro, wind, magnetic, solar, etc. to empower our world and enhance our environment.

Thanks to whoever wrote that article. Here's an except:
"What is global warming?
The science behind global warming is often portrayed as enormously complex, but some of it is quite simple. It begins with a ray of light, shot through space from the staggering inferno of our sun. That sunbeam delivers energy to earth, giving us light and warmth and life. As some of this energy radiates back toward space as heat, a portion is absorbed by a delicate balance of heat-trapping (or "greenhouse") gases in the atmosphere that create an insulating layer. Without the temperature control of this greenhouse effect, the Earth's average surface temperature would be 0°F (-18°C), a temperature so low that the Earth would be frozen and could not sustain human life as we know it. The most abundant of the greenhouse gases is water vapor. In addition, there are other powerful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, and nitrous oxide.
Each of these is a natural part of the never-ending cycle of life, death, and decomposition on Earth. But since the onset of the Industrial Revolution humans have been pumping out more and more of these and other greenhouse gases. Scientists are clear: human activities are contributing to global warming by adding large amounts of heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere. Our fossil fuel use is the main source of these gases. Every time we drive a car, use electricity from coal-fired power plants, or heat our homes with oil or natural gas, we release carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases into the air.
The second most important addition of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere is related to deforestation, mainly in the tropics, as well as other land-use changes.
The concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is now 380 parts-per-million (ppm), 100 ppm higher than at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. But we can look back even further. By drilling into the deepest glacial ice we can measure CO2 deep into time. And this ice library shows more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than at any time in last 650,000 years.
As a result of the build up of gases, the temperature is beginning to rise. Adults today have already felt the average global temperature rise more than a full degree Fahrenheit (0.8°C) during our lifetimes. We expect another degree F by 2020 due to past emissions. Based on modeling by an international body of experts studying the climate crisis, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the temperature could increase by more than 7°F (4°C) by the end of the century in the absence of meaningful efforts to rein in global warming pollution. What happens when the global temperature rises?
For a global system that is delicately balanced, the rise in temperatures will pose serious threats: Rising sea levels, leading to more coastal erosion, flooding during storms, and permanent inundation Increased drought and increased incidence of wildfires Severe stress on many forests, wetlands, alpine regions, and other natural ecosystems Impacts on human health as mosquitoes and other disease-carrying insects and rodents spread diseases over larger geographical regions Disruption of agriculture in some parts of the world due to increased temperature, water stress, and sea-level rise in low-lying areas such as Bangladesh or the Mississippi River delta.
Other projected impacts include increased intensity of hurricanes; the long-term destabilization of the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets, leading to much greater sea level rise; the acidification of the world's oceans; and a vastly increased rate of species extinction. Wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Amazon could collapse under the weight of just a few more degrees. And hundreds of millions of people may be forced from their homelands as the climate shifts, creating increased political and economic instability. "
For more information on hemp please visit the USA Hemp Museum, Richard M. Davis, founder, curator whose idea to use the old Hemp For Victory program is a smart solution echoed by many. Davis' book about how to use hemp , HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION is available at his store.

Peter On Biomass
We have been legislated to death and unless we take our world back, we won't make it.
Toxic energy, burning food for fuel, various degrees of polluting the environment, they are legal. There are even ideas that say the rich should be allowed to continue to pollute for a tax/credit system at a high cost if they choose, and only the poor and middle class need to adjust their pollution levels as they get paid for allowing others to pollute.
Like HORTON HEARS A WHO, it's going to take everyone being stewards of our environment to turn this mess around. True success demands we work as one.
By government order, hemp is illegal. Hemp is a biomass champion that scrubs the air of excess CO2 as it grows, burns clean as biofuel, grows up to 4 crops a year that can be converted into 50,000 plus useful products and services, and has the ability to help restore the economically essential family farm system.
Richard M. Davis of the USA Hemp Museum has a book called HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION. (free ebook link)
In Davis' book, he recommends we use the successful WWII Hemp For Victory program to grow enough hemp to suck the excess CO2, the cause of global warming regardless of the source, from the atmosphere.
Davis explains the who, what, when, where, ware (many websites listed), why and how about applying hemp to help solve the problem of global warming. Growing hemp on 10-20% of unused federal land would be a good start.
Traditional growers can also use existing farm land that has been polluted with decades of toxic fertilizers and grow hemp for a spell.Hemp's root system grows up to six feet deep and aerates the soil. Hemp is so good at what it does it was reportedly used to clean the soil around Chernobyl.
Growing hemp indoors in abandoned buildings could help also, turning unused real estate into income producing property, as demonstrated in the great Showtime television series Weeds when Conrad grows inside in both commercial and residential buildings.
We must do something now.
The failure of congress to pass Ron Paul's
Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2007
was one more death knell in our battle to save ourselves from the results of legal pollution levels and the impact those decisions are having on our world. We deeply appreciate the efforts of the heroic congress people who at least put the issue on the table again. They are listed in the above Youtube webeo link, a piece the Museum put up in gratitude for their effort.
In case we have not damaged the planet where simple cause and effect cease to work, restoring hemp to nature should do the trick of reducing the excess CO2 at cause for global warming. But first we must turn away from our stupid energy policy that uses food for fuel, rather than hemp biofuel, which burns four times more efficiently than corn and when in pellet or log forms, can be burned at plants that make electricity or buildings to make heat.
For more information on how hemp is useful for energy, check out another book posted on line for free, HEMP BIOMASS FOR ENERGY by Tim Castleman, Fuel and Fiber Company
We are limited only by our imaginations, which are vast.

Like Willie Nelson has taught since the 1950's, hemp is a peaceful solution to many of our problems.
Hemp (not corn) biofuel is an effective tool that we must start using now to solve the problem of global warming. Hemp is four times more efficient than corn as biofuel. The policy of food for energy is stupid and possibly evil, one of those designed to fail moves to keep toxic energy in power.
Hemp is one of the "cellulosic technologies" that those in power are pretending not to know about as we get more talk of safe nuclear, clean coal and evermore expensive oil (use less - spend more) as solutions to our energy problems. They are not. Hemp is an effective solution tool for our energy crisis as an excess CO2 remover, clean burning biofuel, and aerates soil up to six feet deep.
From: Worldwatch Perspective
"OPINION Biofuels 2.0: It's Time for Congress to Act
Can Biofuels Make or Break Iowa's Future?
Efforts to replace oil with biofuels in the United States are at a critical juncture. Double-digit growth in the production of corn-based ethanol has contributed to a sharp increase in grain and soybean prices while failing to deliver the environmental gains that had been hoped for.
It's time to reduce the incentives for food-based biofuels and accelerate the transition to more sustainable alternatives - the so-called "next-generation" cellulosic technologies, which are expected to become viable in the coming years. "
Earlier this week Congress held hearings on corn based ethanol energy.
What an oxymoron. They made it illegal to grow hemp to be used to remove the cause of global warming, excess CO2, or as clean burning energy. Then they spend money trying to understand why using food for fuel is not a good idea.

Farm bill would do little to reduce world hunger and much to aggravate it.
Copyright 2008 Houston Chronicle – [short quote]
President Bush promises to veto the five-year, $300 billion farm bill before Congress this week. The House and Senate have given him plenty of reasons to do so. The bill is so wrongheaded it's the equivalent of beating swords into plowshares at the outbreak of a war that closely follows a bumper crop.
Even before one gazes upon the merits and demerits of the bill, its cost alone should be seen as prohibitive. With farmers enjoying record high crop prices and income, it is irresponsible to enlarge the federal budget deficit and national debt to pay for crop subsidies."
Congress didn't have to set this up in the first place. Last year's Industrial Hemp Farming Act was lost in committee since 4/20/07. If it had passed, we'd be solving global warming now with large scale hemp growing, like what happened in the old Hemp For Victory program.
Toxic fertilizers are used to grow corn. The Gulf of Mexico has a huge dead zone where the Mississippi dumps in with the toxic run off of the corn fields.
Richard M. Davis of the USA Hemp Museum has a book with an idea of using the old WWII HEMP FOR VICTORY program to solve the problem of global warming. His site is .
In his book HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION he shows how, if we would shift to hemp biofuel, grown by family farmers on unused federal land and large scale burnt areas, we'd be utilizing a biomass champion. Hemp can help solve the problems of global warming and other environmental issues, like water pollution from paper making. The crops available after growth and oil can help heal the housing market with the inexpensive building material Hempstone.
Jack Herer, in his book THE EMPEROR WEARS NO CLOTHES has a chapter on Energy, Environment and Commerce posted.
Since hemp is a weed it's easy to grow and modern times have given us good harvest and processing equipment.
Hemp is a wind pollinated plant that can grow up to 4 crops a year. Hemp’s large root system aerates soil up to six feet deep, cleaning toxins.
Large amounts of hemp foods can be available on short notice in case the bees don't return, helping avoid starvation dramas.
Hemp is a natural resource material that we can use to boost the economy with small and large business opportunities, restore family farms, and provide many job opportunities.
Given the speed that the ice caps are melting, weather changing, food prices rising, etc., I don't think Mother Earth wants to wait for another election to get started. We need to get hemped now. Please share your ideas on how.

Does the environmental community have the fortitude to say the truth that hemp can help solve the problem of global warming? I think we do, once folks have the facts.
Richard M. Davis holds a Masters Degree in biology from California State University at Los Angeles and attended the School of Public Health at UCLA for four years under a US Public Health Service Fellowship. Davis is a hempster since the sixties and has collected thousands of hemp related items and articles.
Davis is the founder and curator of the USA Hemp Museum, a massive private museum with a virtual wing located at www.hempmuseum.org .
Davis has agreed to make available an ebook copy of his heroic book HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION to activists in an effort to save the earth from destruction, regardless of the cause.
Man made or not, there is too much CO2 in the air and we must lower it now. Hemp is a tool we can use.
Davis' ebook is posted:
In this work Davis proposes we use the successful World War II HEMP FOR VICTORY program to solve the problem of global warming.
If only 10-20% of unused federal land (plus areas where fires have destroyed many trees) were seeded for hemp, the environmental, economic (post harvest business/products/jobs), medical and social benefits would be massive.
In this book he's compiled the information most focused on how hemp removes the excess CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows, burns clean as biofuel, and requires no toxic chemicals to grow. You'll see hemp art and activists like the late, great Peter McWilliams. Learn about Presidents Jefferson and Washington as hemp growers. When you finish this book (if not before) you'll understand we have the tools, hemp and human will, to save ourselves.
If you're already a hemp environmentalist, this book is an easy case to pass on for why we should be using hemp now to help solve the problem of global warming both as a plant that breathes in excess CO2 and as clean burning biofuel working in concert with other clean and/or free energies like solar, wind, hydro, magnetic, etc.
We just need the courage to use them instead of toxic energy. The shift could be that simple. Outlaw toxic and replace with clean.
So, back to the original statement. Hemp, an effective solution tool for global warming is illegal. Now what?
HEMP FOR VICTORY Hard copies are available at the USA Hemp Museum's site.
