This is brillliant! Have you heard about Henry Ford's hemp car that also ran on hemp fuel? Hemp produces around 4 times more cellulose per acre than trees apparently. I am not as well-versed as you on the topic of alternative fuels so I would like to hear your opinion on it. Hemp also has hundreds of other uses, but that's a whole other topic. Big fan of your work. :3

Actually, the advantage of hemp over hardwoods or switchgrass is greater than that. Here in Virginia, one can reliably expect to harvest 5 to 6 dry tons of biomass per acre per year from these two sources (it will vary depending on the region of the country and the exact species of trees involved). Hemp, on the other hand, will yield 22 dry tons per acre per year, but, again here in Virginia, one can generate two such harvests per year, or, 44 dry tons per acre per year -- an advantage more like 7 to 1. See also: [link], and especially the commentary attached to [link].

Whoa even better. Thanks for the linkage and sharing your art and your activist spirit. Here's hoping hemp makes a big comeback!
