Brazil Burns On Trumps Buddy Bolsonaro
Largest Rainforest To Become Extinct
Trumps good buddy, he is nominating for NATO for his work at destroying Venezuela, is busy burning out the forests of Brazil to aid in opening new land for real estate development. Trump loves it and him.
As the rain forests burn many people understand that the planets oxygen supply actually comes from it and other global rain forests. Brazil has the, or had, the largest of these.
Only Cannabis Can Save The Rainforest
Hemp grows to 13 feet in 100 days, making it one of the fastest CO2-to-biomass conversion tools available. Industrial hemp has been proven to absorb more CO2 per hectare than any forest or commercial crop, making it the ideal carbon sink. It can be grown on a wide scale on nutrient poor soils with very small amounts of water and no fertilizers.
It would seem to be very important to get something planted after all the other nations do the work Brazil should have done to halt the destruction of the rain forest. After the fire we should all plant this important crop that can do more for climate change than all other actions could. The capitalists have to get over the fact that hemp is an industrial plant and that the competition of wood-based products will never be superior to it. Cannabis Farmer
Hemp cultivation is profitable in many other ways – so profitable that it is effectively a self-funding solution to the environmental crisis. According to an April 2019 article in Forbes titled “Industrial Hemp Is the Answer to Petrochemical Dependency,” crop yields from hemp can range from $20,000 to $50,000 per acre. Its widespread cultivation can happen without government subsidies. Investment in research, development and incentives would speed the process, but market forces will propel these transformations even if Congress fails to act. All farmers need for incentive is a market for the products, which hemp legalization has provided. Due to the crop’s century-long suppression, the infrastructure to capitalize on its diverse uses still needs to be developed, but the infrastructure should come with the newly opened markets.

It’s how Capitalists Treat Nature
We are pointing to the deaths of more than half a billion bees in Brazil over a period of just four months, beekeepers, experts and activists are raising concerns about the soaring number of new pesticides green lighted for use by the Brazilian government since far-right President Jair Bolsonaro took office in January — and the threat that it poses to pollinators, people and the planet.
What can the world do?
We can hope and we can pray, but until the world stops its war on hemp-based production we may be doomed to the legacy that the capitalist cowboy culture has given us.
