Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

Spoiler!

Biomass, it's doable. It just happens that hemp is among the very best of Biomass energy candidates.

Alarmist but possible, I believe is what I wrote in 2007.

I'm aware it's doable. That isn't what the poster claimed, however.

Certainly, it is hard to imagine a world fueled by biomass, primarily. Science would support such a claim. The rest is, well, one man's speculation compared to another man's. I do want to point out Biomass is a renewable energy.

There are many possible ways to power our vehicles, but none are energy and/or fiscally-efficient as petroleum.

I lived in phoenix from 1992 to 2000 and talked with a few people that owned the EV1 and they said it got 60-80 miles on a charge. The two people I talked with about it that had them said they absolutly loved them and wished they could own them.

What strikes me is that this. Technology back in 1992 was very limited, people were buying 386 and 486 computers, cell phones were pretty much huge brick phone or bag phones and CD's were just becoming popular.

You can't tell me that they don't have the technology today to have batteries that will go 400 miles plus per charge easily.

Battery technology has only grown 30% better in the last 20 years, no possible way

"There is fuel in every bit of vegetable matter that can be fermented. There's enough alcohol in one year's yield of an acre of potatoes to drive the machinery necessary to cultivate the fields for a hundred years."

OK-this one isn't hemp-derived, but it certainly is not a thumbs-up for petroleum.
