Duncan – I’m told by friends in the oil patch that society can’t survive without Alberta crude.
Well there are 35 liquid and gaseous fuels in an acre of wheat straw but the heat to break it down makes it economically not feasible; well have they never heard about sun cookers? There are about 300 gallons of oil in an acre of hemp and just by crushing the seeds the oil extracted can be used directly in diesel motors. Hemp oil has 21 amino acids, including the nine essential ones for humans that makes it comparable to the so-called perfect foods like milk and eggs. It also is used in many products including biodegradable plastic plus clothing, paper, cement and the list goes on and on. I am so sorry, but if we were as smart as people 12,000 years ago we could keep our lifestyle without killing our planet.
