Cannabis vs. "Global Broiling" : An Inconvenient Solution

Humankind's disregard for the ancient operating systems of the Natural Order have imposed fundamental imbalances on Earth's environment over a very brief span of evolutionary time. In just half a century, critically destabilizing insults inflicted on our life-sustaining atmosphere have allowed increasing levels of midrange ultraviolet solar radiation (UV-B) to penetrate through to the surface of the planet. I trust this brief introduction to the problem and a realistic strategy for resolution, will serve to initiate the timely, requisite, purposeful, coordinated polar shift in values needed, in proportionate response to a fundamental threat to people, plants and animals in every corner of the world.

UV-B exposure causes genetic mutation, impaired immune response and abnormal cell growth in plants and animals. Increasing incidence of cancers, cataracts, falling agricultural production, declining forest health and a catastrophic decline in the world's "indicator species" including krill, bees, bats, birds, coral reefs, and amphibians, consistently indicate profound systemic imbalance. Much of what is out-of-balance can be profoundly attributed to increasing UV-B radiation.

Examples include the disorienting effects of "enhanced" levels of UV-B on solar-sensitive krill in the Antarctic. Increased UV-B interferes with krill reproduction, fundamentally undermining the basis of the entire food chain of the world's oceans. On land, half of the crops studied for UV-B sensitivity produced less food under conditions of elevated solar radiation. In humans it can take two decades for the effects of a single elevated UV-B exposure to manifest into terminal illness.

Measurements taken by the National Science Foundation Ultraviolet Monitoring Network since 1988 show an alarming increase in UV-B levels. Comparing UV-B intensity between 1990 and 2010, at sea level in San Diego, California, there was an 118% increase in the number of days with UV-B readings rated as "Very High" (11 days at 10+ in 1990, 24 days at 10+ in 2010). At the South Pole, readings as high as 65.78 have been recorded (01/05/2001). When the UV index is over 9, UV-B is extremely strong, and you will sunburn in less than 15 minutes. Higher elevations receive less protection from the Sun than lower altitudes.

A growing understanding of the protective, "radiative" influence of atmospheric aerosols produced by the boreal forests, makes further destruction of the northern "Taiga" an immediate, primary concern. The boreal forest is the world's largest terrestrial biome, encircling the cold Northern Hemisphere. The forest covers 6.4 million square miles (11 percent of the world's land surface area) from Siberia to Alaska, Canada, Northern Europe and Northern Asia.

Boreal forests consist mainly of pine, spruce and fir trees. In addition to sequestering and storing atmospheric carbon, the trees exude a fragrant concoction of volatile aerosol compounds, including "monoterpenes." Monoterpenes rise from the forests into the stratosphere, where they reflect solar radiation away from the planet and seed formation of exceptionally bright and persistent clouds. The clouds produce a dilute, monoterpene-enhanced rain. Before they are washed from the sky, monoterpenes serve as a reflective "sunscreen," shielding the planet against UV-B. Possessing many therapeutic properties, monoterpenes may also serve as a water purifying, anti-viral agent, as they circulate through the our aquatic, mycilially integrated ecosystem.

Since 1950, about half of the Taiga has been lost to logging (primarily to make toilet paper, newsprint, and magazines), oil & gas extraction, hydroelectricity flooding and insect pest infestation. Increased instability in the Middle East, advanced technology for working in freezing conditions and increasing, unaccountable extraction methods are expanding natural resource exploitation into areas and technologies previously considered either impossible, too environmentally destructive or unprofitable for plundering. The current rate of logging has been estimated to be five acres per minute, all day, every day. The remaining forests are being catastrophically decimated by unprecedented insect infestations attributable to continuous breeding cycles, made possible by increasing global temperatures.

The vast boreal region that previously served to sequester and store atmospheric carbon, is turning from "carbon sink" to "carbon source." Additional carbon dioxide and methane are being liberated from warmed soils as accumulated plant matter thaws and decomposes. If this continues, eventually no recovery will be possible. As UV-B levels continue to increase and the planet gets hotter, the impending release of stored carbon on such a vast scale poses an incalculable threat. Release of greenhouse gasses on such a vast scale will exacerbate global warming beyond predictability. More UV-B also increases temperature, which increases UV-B, resulting in further warming. As temperature and radiation levels increase, monoterpene production by the forest declines.

Under present conditions the slow-growing coniferous forests will never recover. As the forests are cut, dry up, get eaten and die, protection from the Sun afforded by homeostatic concentrations of monoterpenes established over thousands of years, are plummeting. At the same time carbon, methane, chlorine, methyl bromide and other atmospheric "weapons of mass destruction" are quietly eroding protective atmospheric ozone, the precipitous decline in monoterpenes is leaving the planet exposed to unprecedented levels of UV-B.

We truly have nothing to fear but the atmosphere itself. Increasing UV-B is an ubiquitous, immediate threat to individual health and the functional integrity of the ecosystem. Due to the deadly nature of elevated UV-B radiation, credible science appears to indicate that we are faced with imminent global extinction unless all possible remedies are applied in time to have an effect. Unless we are successful in addressing elevated UV-B radiation, it won't matter much what other problems we do manage to solve.

"Global broiling" by escalating intensities of ultraviolet-B wavelengths of sunlight require that all solutions be immediately, objectively considered. There may yet be enough time remaining to implement a biotherapeutic response to the insidious, lethal effects of increasing UV-B. All possible solutions must be objectively considered, prioritized and effectively implemented, regardless of the existing extinctionistic economic inertia and critical wealth disparity, that's misdirecting incumbent, self-empowering, corporate political regimes. If we are to avoid synergistic collapse of environment, economics and social structures upon which our lives depend, expansion of the organic arable base for maximum production of monoterpenes is a global priority, regardless of so-called "political realities' " constrictive influence.

At present, because of the blatantly irrational, counter-productive agricultural prohibition of Cannabis, the most likely remedy to global broiling is not even being considered. Potentially the world's most widespread, prodigious source of monoterpenes, the Cannabis plant is exceptional in producing copious amounts of 58 monoterpenes in less time, in more soil and climate conditions, with greater ecological and economic benefit than any other agricultural resource on Earth. "Hemp" is also capable of sequestering nine tons of carbon per acre in a growing season, while respiring an abundance of oxygen and detoxifying contaminated soils.

Cannabis is an ancient, highly adaptable, globally distributed, agronomically beneficial, pioneer crop. Six American Presidents have signed Executive Orders identifying "hemp" as being a "strategic food resource," available by "essential civilian demand."

Cannabis is inarguably the most complete and potentially available source of organic vegetable protein on Earth. Hemp is the only common seed containing three essential fatty acids (EFAs) in proper proportion for long-term consumption. Hemp is also the only plant that produces complete nutrition and sustainable biofuels from the same harvest. This eliminates the mistakenly perceived trade-off between biofuels energy production and food security. In addition to being the world's most useful, nutritious and safely therapeutic "herb bearing seed," hemp also produces biodegradable plastics, paper, cloth, resins, therapeutics, pesticides, and building materials. Cannabis is potentially the most rapidly, globally distributed crop on Earth. In just three growing seasons, Cannabis can adapt itself to virtually any soil and climate condition, excepting the radical extremes.

It is all too apparent that the integrity of Earth's environment is quietly unraveling under the effects of increasing UV-B radiation. Accelerating loss of atmospheric monoterpenes is an unpredictable, under-regarded "loose cannon on the deck" of Spaceship Earth. Expansion of the arable base, timely production of atmospheric monoterpenes, and rates of carbon sequestration we are able to achieve will largely determine our survival or extinction. A polar shift in values and an expansive global campaign of Cannabis agriculture is urgently needed to compensate for the decline in monoterpenes from the death of the boreal forests.

In the context of compounding, accelerating crises we face in the 21st Century, it appears that 'time' is the limiting factor in the equation of survival. The irrational prohibition of 'marijuana' has intransigently obstructed timely, objective consideration of Cannabis agriculture, manufacture and trade as proportionate global response for addressing multiple conditions of irreversible imbalance. The most advantageous sequence of remedial measures must be implemented immediately, to effect timely resolution of interrelated imbalances. Organic Cannabis farming appears to be mankind's most time-efficient and cost-effective strategy for resolving problems of climate, food insecurity, economics and energy production. If humans plant Cannabis intensively this spring, there may yet be enough time remaining for agricultural remedies to have an effect.
Because 'time' is the limiting factor in the equation for healing the planet, Spring 2011 is the most critical planting season in human history. If humans don't make the best use of every growing season we may have left to heal Earth's atmosphere, then there is something very wrong with our society. To ignore an historically revered solution in deference to a so-called "drug war" that's known to be counter-productive to its own stated objectives, risks sudden, irreversible synergistic collapse. Regardless of perceived limitations attributed to so-called "political realities", the unavoidable fact is that what’s needed is an immediate, massive global planting of Cannabis.

Humankind faces a simple choice which must be decided before the Spring planting season of 2011. Either our species recognizes Cannabis as both unique and essential, and we use Cannabis as a pioneer crop to expand the arable base, planting hemp everywhere that it can possibly grow; Or the Earth will be "broiled" to eventual extinction, under elevated, increasing intensities of UV-B radiation.

An immediate, fundamental shift in values is urgently called for, out of critical global necessity. At the moment, in Hawaii, an opportunity currently exists to end prohibition by applying knowledge of the true value of Cannabis to free Cannabis Ministry Reverend Roger Christie. Hemp is valuable because it is unique and essential for several reasons. Petrochemicals aren't valuable because they are insidiously toxic to our health & environment. There are so many variables and uncertainties regarding the synergistic causes of imbalance, the focus needs to shift to an active change in what is considered valuable.

Extrajudicially imprisoned-without-trial and shamelessly denied bail five times since July 2010, Reverend Christie’s immediate release from prison is an epic legal milestone that could punctuate the end of essential resource scarcity in the United States. The Constitutional supremacy of "religious freedom" empowered through public right of "essential civilian demand" for a "strategic" "herb bearing seed" "of first necessity" is currently being focussed on the blatantly unobjective federal court proceeding.

Ending Cannabis prohibition can be most expeditiously accomplished by recognizing that polls show the majority of the American people in support of reclaiming our "god-given" freedom to farm. Through the legal supremacy of our Constitutionally protected "religious freedom" applied to nationwide public exercise of "essential civilian demand" for a "strategic" "herb bearing seed" "of first necessity," nullification of the jury in a blatantly unobjective court proceeding will be revealed as sufficient to end Cannabis prohibition at the federal level.

In essence the true value of Cannabis must free Roger Christie, through public nullification of disingenuous laws, before his trial that's been postponed until next Summer. Because of what is at stake, and the ham-fisted dismissal of due process by the court, Reverend Christie’s case presents a "perfect storm" in which to convene “The Trial for the Century” in the court of public opinion. In essence, Reverend Chrisitie's pre-trial exoneration will end Cannabis prohibition, potentiating the timely reversal of climate catastrophe.

Time is the 'limiting factor' in the equation of survival. Time is the only thing we can't make more of. Every spring that passes is gone forever. Either our species will succumb to the inertia of a chemically corrupted political regime leading us to extinction; Or people will wake up to the truth and wisdom of abandoning a viciously counter-productive prohibition in time to reintroduce the world's most "Gaiatherapeutic" resource and let the free organic agricultural market work.

As people continue to discover that Cannabis agriculture is the most effective remedy to the most fundamental problems we face, eventual implementation of sound organic agricultural policy will be implemented. If 'time' truly is the limiting factor in the equation of survival, then the real question is, "How bad do things have to get before all solutions are considered?"

Good news Bad news

‘We Are Heading Towards an Abyss’
U.N. chief tells 150 governments that time running out on climate change

Good news: There is a way to get from where we are to where we need to be.
Bad news: It means everyone saying the same thing at the same time. " Freedom to farm."

Organic agriculture is the only, immediately globally available, affordable proportionate response to climate change. Carbon sequestration and monoterpene production are just two of the reasons to end Cannabis prohibition, but there are many more. Global warming & global broilng (increasing UV-B) need to be addressed in every possible way.

Cannabis is the only crop that produces food and fuel from the same harvest, sustainably. The argument against biofuels, (supposedly inducing food insecurity) is worse than wrong -- it's backwards. When Cannabis is added back into the equation the most nutritious seed on Earth will be available everywhere, inexpensively.

Time is the limiting factor in the equation of survival. Every spring planting season that passes without the benefits of Cannabis agriculture manufacture and trade is an opportunity that's lost forever.

Good news: Essential Civilian demand for Cannabis is provided for in Executive Order 12919. We have nothing to fear but the atmosphere itself.

Here's a glimpse into one possible future, if we choose peace instead of war.

No less than a criminal negligence lawsuit against the "drug war dinosaurs" is needed before next Spring. The only reason we can't grow industrial hemp in the United States is because law enforcement claims that they can't tell the difference between marijuana and industrial hemp. That's a self-serving lie that's crippling the most "Gaia-therapeutic" industry stream on the planet, at the bidding of the chemical industries and other symptoms of the economics of punishment.

If we achieve extinction, it will be because our generation lacks the courage to shift its values in the face of the coming synergistic collapse of spirit, environment, economics and social evolution. All are connected. All are dependent upon the integrity of the others. Our economic system has been detached from the spirituality of organic farming.

Cannabis is an essential rotational tool for organic agriculture. The 60+ cannabinoids protect the plant from myriad assaults and pest infestations, and can be used to protect other crops .

How bad do things have to get before all solutions are considered? There are several time lags to consider, that are hardly mentioned.

Cannabis seed is nutritionally unique, complete and essential. The freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom. If we reclaim the Constitution, then the First Amendment ought to be enough to rediscover our individual right to grow everything we need, in abundance.

Coordinated tax revolt.

Coordinated tax revolt. Cut the fat off the obese government bureaucracy that's harvesting its own population for profit. The recalcitrance of a failed "drug war" is our opportunity to see "the glitch in the matrix" and how badly the government is broken. Do you trust the future of your children to an unaccountable bureaucracy?

'IRS' and 'DEA' are the six most expensive letters in the USA.

For those who ask where the money to run country would come from, taxes could be collected at point-of-purchase for non-essential goods & services, eliminating an entire bureaucratic empire. Carbon taxes and other "gaiatherapeutic" measures would accelerate the shift to respect for the Natural Order that's required to avert extinction.

The DEA is known to be counter-productive to its own stated objectives. Billions are being wasted in a voracious, illegal, pointless bureaucracy.

The IRS violates the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution which makes involuntary servitude illegal under any U.S. jurisdiction whether at the hands of the U.S. government or in the private sphere, except as punishment for a crime: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States..."

I won't spend my life doing 'free accounting' for an outlaw government and neither should you. Convicted as a tax protester in 1996, I freed myself from wage slavery. It hasn't been an easy road, but it does add a refreshing element of honesty to living.

We have nothing to fear but the atmosphere itself. Unless "We the People" lead our government to our own freedom, we will be forced to continue down the road to synergistic collapse. The good news is, yes, we can do it.

It's called organic agriculture, it's loaded with jobs, and it's regionally efficient. Energy production, food production, and governance can be regionally designed to a much greater degree than the megacorps would prefer, but really, it's our choice.

Cannabis agriculture can help to fix it. End prohibition and the illegal, inequitable income tax.Take responsibility for understanding the true value of Cannabis, and you will see that there is an option. But time is the limiting factor. Every spring planting season that passes is gone forever.

Shiftin Values

RightOn swansong. Nicely summed up.

There's even more to this story, and it's mostly very good news. Google 'global broiling' if you'd care to find my blog & read about the 58 "monoterpenes" produced by Cannabis agriculture. Volatile aerosol compounds in ganja reflect UV-B away from the Earth and seed cloud formation. It's the final final argument for total Cannabis freedom.

Cannabis is far too valuable to be within the rightful jurisdiction of any court. Our freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom. Drugs don't make seeds. Herbs do. Not another "law" needs to be changed. The First Amendment applies specifically, invariably.

Prohibition of Cannabis is ending because prohibition is counter-productive to it's own stated objectives and erodes our society at its foundations. The rule of law is critical and delicate, if it is intentionally broken, as it has been for the past 72 years of hemp prohibition, then our system of governance eventually loses any credibility.

As it is, most people now understand that we have been & are being intentionally misled by a few very rich people. Regardless of the dog & pony show being fed to us by the main-line media, now what? Do we just shrug & die? I don't think so...there's "essential civilian demand" and it's up to us, We the People, to exercise it.

Our generation is being challenged to communicate the truth about Cannabis as if our lives depended on it, for surely they do. Failing to acknowledge the hypocrisy of a Schedule One drug being used to develop pharmaceuticals is insulting to everyone's intelligence, beyond credibility.

Failing to identify, educate and implement hemp seed production as a "strategic food resource" is criminally negligent. The good news is, now that most people can learn of the therapeutic benefits of hemp seed nutrition, the pharmaceutical industry will suffer from a healthy population.

The one-hundred-eighty degree shift in values is all that's needed to end prohibition. Cannabis isn't a "bad plant" -- it's the best plant! If we grow it in abundance we may survive climate change. If we don't grow it, the increasing UV-B radiation will broil the Earth to death.

I have to believe it's that simple because I have a baby boy who's depending on me to come through with a livable planet. If the whales & dolphins have anything to teach, it's economics. Theirs is a thirty million year old system. I trust that those who have abundance to direct will encourage this industry with generous support.

Dolphin economics says "You help me help you help everyone." People would be wise to invest in the world's most ancient and valuable crop. As a "gaiatherapeutic industry" Cannabis agriculture is unmatched.

Redistribution of wealth will come immediately when people recognize the true value of Cannabis agriculture manufacture and trade in the context of 21st century crises we face.

Best wishes,

Cannabis agriculture vs. climate change

Cannabis agriculture vs. climate change

July 4th, 2009

Cannabis agriculture is about to be recognized as the best available proportionate response to climate change -- so what's left to debate? Tune in to learn about "atmospheric aerosols" that can save our bacon, why 'marijuana' has never been truly illegal, what the legal difference between drugs and herbs means to every creature on the planet. This is good news!
