COP26 should give hemp a chance

COP26 should give hemp a chance

COP26 presents Boris Johnson with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity hopes that Boris grasps his COP26 opportunity with green fingers so that he can help build a legacy for the entire world at COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, 31 Oct – 12 Nov 2021. This assembly of world leaders and climate heroes needs to enact frameworks that will enable Greentech solutions at scale. COP26 must succeed.

At, we believe that hemp can play the lead role in our emergency CO2 reduction strategy, by removing up to 10 tons of CO2 per acre in one season. Outputs can be used as sustainable fuels and plastics, and also as construction material to sequester huge volumes of CO2 for 100 years or more. COP26 doesn’t need to do much to liberate hemp’s potential. We need new thinking, some infrastructure investment and global acceptance of hemp's potential.

Here’s our 5-Point Hemp Plan, what COP26 needs to agree on industrial hemp:

1. Industrial hemp is recognised as a true carbon-negative crop.

2. It is agreed that hemp can sequester enough CO2 at scale to stop climate change. We just need to grow enough hemp: 1 billion acres.

3. Establish co-ops to provide infrastructure and create jobs around hemp growing, harvesting and processing into finished goods or raw materials.

4. Stimulate demand for sustainable, carbon-neutral hemp products, including biodiesel, food, clothing, plastics and housing.

5. China, already the world’s largest hemp-growing nation, can use hemp biofuel pellets as a replacement for coal in power stations. Biofuel is totally sustainable, is arguably more thermally efficient than coal, and has lower carbon emissions, so it should be used to replace fossil-fuel-burning for power.

Transportation-hailing is the act of a customer booking a personalised trip via the internet, usually through a mobile application. It's essentially the same as a taxi service.

Unlike ridesharing, the motorist normally does not take any breaks between the starting point and the destination. Clients
COP26: Adventism’s New Obsession to Join the Climate Change Movement
It is beyond belief that the Seventh-day Adventist Church does not believe in getting involved in the national debate on abortion or the LGBT+ agenda. No, we can’t get involved in the real moral problems of our time that are so widespread in the world today because we have lost our prophetic voice to defend the law of God in the public arena. So instead of shedding light to these

On October 29, 2021, the Scottish Mission of Seventh-day
