ALCP: Hemp Can Reverse Man-Made Climate Change

The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party (ALCP) is the only New Zealand political party with a policy that can reverse man-made climate change. Neither emission reductions targets or carbon trading schemes will solve the problem. Nor will the establishment of more International Laws. The only answer to the problem is to plant hundreds of thousands of hectares of Cannabis Hemp, at a density of around 300 plants/ square metre, as the ALCP advocate. This could provide for all of New Zealand's energy and fuel needs.


The proof of this is Jack Herer's unclaimed $100,000 challenge:


"If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the Greenhouse Effect and stop deforestation, then there is only one known annually renewable natural resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world's paper and textiles; meet all of the world's transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time. That substance is the same one that has done it before: Cannabis Hemp."


Anyone who can prove this statement wrong is entitled to $US 100,000. http://www.jackherer.com/challenge.html
