And where are you going to grow the food crops, dairy farms that the hemp plantations replace.
If you want paper, a tree grows 100's of feet straight up in closely planted plantations. To get equal productivity from hemp plants you'd need 10 - 20 -50 times the area.
Plantation timber actually recycles more CO2 and Oxygen than older trees as they are young and actively growing so serve a purpose in pollution control.
If your native forests in Victoria are being decimated by human activities then control the humans.
Anybody who has driven about Australia through the cattle grazing, wheat growing areas etc would have to be blind if they didn't see there are no trees. The farming process has been wrong from the beginning by clear-felling huge areas of forest instead of pockets, small areas within the forests, though thankfully there is an awareness now emerging and being practiced by some farmers and reaping benefits by retaining old growth trees.
" To many people "
That problem is already beginning to be sorted out with the increase in viruses as a result of mans activities and destruction of nature on this planet, which is what the article I posted is all about and the reason I posted it.
Did you read it, or do you think Kruegers squarking holds all the truths ?
"Industrial Hemp is bred from certified low THC varieties which have grown for thousands of years throughout Europe and Asia. Its closest botanical relative is hops.
Hemp fibre crops produce one of the most, if not the most industrially versatile and durable fibre known to humans. One hectare of Industrial Hemp grown for fibre, produces between 10 – 12 tonnes of dry fibre per ha.
Hemp fibre crops grows very rapidly ( 4+ metres in 90 – 100 days) and they are one of the most efficient CO2-to-biomass conversion tools available, 5 x more efficient than agro-forestry.
..... etc. "
It would be the miracle plant for human benefit and the planet's well being;
"While Hemp needs a well prepared seed bed and adequate subsoil moisture or irrigation for the first 6 weeks (and produces optimal yields when it is irrigated), in the Northern Tablelands of NSW, high yielding hemp fibre crops have been produced with a third of the water needed for lucerne. Hemp is a hardy crop and was identified early in the establishment of the colony as a suitable crop for Australian farmers.
Industrial hemp is grown successfully using organic farming methods in a number of countries, most notably Austria and Romania. Market demand and an emerging commitment to sustainable farming is now also positively influencing production in Australia.
Hemp has a deep taproot and improves soil structure. It is an excellent crop in rotation and is known to increase yields in subsequent crops such as wheat.
When planted at appropriate densities for fibre production ( between 40 – 65 Kg seed per ha dependent on the variety), Hemp does not require the use of herbicides as the fast forming canopy excludes sunlight allowing the crop to outcompete emerging weeds. For more information on hemp farming."
Rawali, you can build a house and all its furniture with plantation timber, thereby leaving native forests alone.
I am not suggesting what is right or wrong, good or bad. Everything has to be taken into context to find the most practical approach to avoid going over the cliff to devastation which has become increasingly clear could happen unless we act now, which is what my original post and article was pointing out.
The LNP dont put any value on the environment and as long as they are in office the coal and forestry industries will get endless taxpayer welfare to prop up a handful of unsustainable jobs which cause catastrophic environmental destruction in Australia .
