Water? One-third of this world's fresh water sources are polluted by petro-chemicals and petro-fertilizers!
Hemp paper requires a special variety and processing technology. The first Poplar and Cottonwood papers were extremely costly, time consuming, and course.
Meanwhile, Canadian green-energy stocks are soaring, China is the #1 exporter of energy wind mills, and Germany plans to close ALL their landfills in 10 years!
Costs? How about 730 foreign military bases protecting the "free" flow of oil and the lives wasted on illegal foreign occupations? Right-wingers are able to fabricate economic "facts" because Americans have NO CLUE about the actual costs of our outdated technologies, they call these costs "externalities" and they are "off the books"...until all the fish in your river are dead, your lake is polluted, the land surrounding your bay is one giant brownfield, the products on the shelves are causing a cancer epidemic, and your son or daughter are among the 5,000 U.S. soldier's that have taken their own lives since March, 2007.
Not that long ago other industries combined their entrenched political power to stop progress and enforce the continuation of their outdated technologies, fighting to maintain their leather, wood, iron, dye, feed and animal husbandry trades to keep those damn cars off their dirt roads.
Cars are too expensive!
Too complicated!
Too undependable!
It can't be done!
Whaa Whaa Whaa
It took decades to make this mess, if we start now, it will take decades to extract ourselves.
China has also purchased many bonds and futures options of U.S. Agriculture businesses and its products. The chinese will have more rights than Americans to the food produced in America IF Americans keep sticking thy heads up thy buttoxes in so far as world fina ncial markets are applicable!

Let's face it, As Americans, we are a devolving country being dumbed down - and parents are a big reason why!
