To those doing everything in their power to create President Paul,
Hello. I would like
to point out how Ron Paul, if he changes his message slightly, can easily be the greenest candidate of them all.
It should help him get elected, so please read and then pass it
on if you agree.
THE FREEING OF THE GREENS
THE GREENING OF THE ANARCHISTS
The other day, ….. pondering how to help get Ron
Paul elected I realized it’s just a question of message if he wishes to be the number one choice of us greens.
We haven’t had free markets
for energy and vehicles [and many other products] in this country for a century if not longer.
Libetarians tend to despise environmentalists because
the ones they read and see in the mainstream media seem to wish to regulate almost everything. [Democrats ____ me off.] That and because deep down, they fear
an agency which will monitor every last molecule globally. And in the wrong hands
I hear their call of freedom. I am very much a Libertarian.
I wish to create a USoA much as many of them do ; a mosaic
of extremely eccentric states.
But I also worship science.
Sagan and Heinlein are my idea of light reading.
I crave knowledge .
What many Libertarians [and I as well] have forgotten
is freeing America’s homegrown markets is perhaps the most environmentally friendly way we can create a RealCiv. We can green our civilization if Ron Paul is allowed to free a few important
Most greens are anarchists …. I mean Libertarians
in their hearts, trust me.
1] In the last decade, a vehicle was produced which ran
on electricity. It was fast and traveled much like a small car you’ve been
in today, except it was far more quiet. What happened?
2] Back in the 1930s a device was created which would have allowed hemp to have become a major competetor
in the energy sector as well as others. Hemp was then made illegal, even though
there is no reason to do so unless you want to kill it as competition. Why?
That are only two of the most obvious examples. Very important markets, no?
Did you watch that first link up there to the very end? The one on the electric car? Watch the
last minute or so please. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHQ4cEr5Wao
We can build electric cars here in the states, American
garage inventors are tinkering even now with blueprints in cluttered rooms, but guess who is suppressing any free market initiatives
with such heresies?
You need to mention that President … Rep. Paul. Americans need to stop thinking like herd animals, start sifting for the truth via
the internet, and then make some informed decisions.
Should people be required by law to buy an electic car eventually? You can see Cali doing that one day can’t you. No. No.
No. Because even though electric cars will probably find their niche from
Cali through Arizona and who knows how far into Texas, [in symbiosis with SolaRoofing!!!!] vehicles which run on
hemp might be more popular in the interior or everywhere else for that matter.
In fact, Rep Paul, when the issue of catastrophic warming comes
up, I’d like to hear you say something like this,
“Well, the idea of an agency which monitors almost every molecule we emit sends shivers down
my [Libetarian] spine. Right now we have the EPA and it’s not ensuring
clean water, soil and air for many Americans because the system is simply too centralized and corrupt.”
“As for cutting our nation’s carbon emissions,
by freeing up America’s homegrown markets, we can probably reduce them literally in half within two or more years.
serious, …….. we can reduce Ameirca’s carbon emissions by a unbelievable margin simply by legalizing hemp.
have to understand that biologically we can absorb huge quantities of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere simply by planting
fast growing species of plants from sea to shining sea, and hemp, … from everything I have read, is the crown jewel
of all known species. Hemp can simply be turned over and used to fertize the
freeing the market place for hemp will allow farmers to absorb enormous amounts of carbon dioxide and used it to revitalize
our nation’s soils.
even better, … except for the oil companies or course …. but you can literally make most packaging out of hemp
and this then can be ground up in your backyard or taken to a farmer or whoever wants it and allowed to decompose biologically
back into soil, unlike all the plastics [petroleum derived] you see being used today and cluttering our landfills needlessly.
you see the light?] A simple act such as legalizing hemp will allow us to absorb
CO2 out of the atmosphere and use it to renew our soils and at the same time create biologically sane packaging which will
eventually do the same thing. We might be able to plant enough of this, in a
free market, to fuel a large percentage of our vehicles.
for it will not stop there. All paper sh/could be made from hemp for the same
reason as much packaging.
market for hemp sh/could cause the price of lumber to drop since most paper now comes from trees, and less demand should translate
into lower lumber prices. and that might be beneficial to the new housing market since it cuts one input cost.
So we can see
the cascading reactions caused simply from freeing the market for the world’s fastest growing plant.
Now freeing up markets also means freeing up the marketplace of ideas. That’s what’s so important about the internet. The
truth isn’t going to be spoon fed to you, you have to sift through it yourself and come to your own conclusions. That’s what science is all about.
[Why does Lew Rockwell furbish links to scientific [second or
third source] articles in every field but the climate sciences?
To be honest, I am tired of your links to articles remaining sceptical of our planet’s
continued warming. That sceptism remains as to whether our planet is warming
shows something of the size of the campaign to dicredit the few who have toiled in the climate sciences over the last decade.
If you are to link to any article on something such as global warming,
please do so with a scientific journal. I would very much appreciate that.]
Take a look at the satellite photos of the north pole. You can close your eyes towards the ice core samples, the computer models [I don’t care for Computer
Models as of yet. A mathmateical representaion of our world will one day approach
accuarcy, but clearly anyone in the know realizes we need more data before models of our entire world can be taken seriously] the melting snows of Kilimanjaro etc. but it’s hard to take a look at
the data coming in from the poles and not say, “Holy _____, Batman.”
The fact remains, it appears our world’s ocean has absorbed
who knows how much heat and CO2 over the last century.
Ten years ago there was scientific debate as to whether our
world was warming. [Please stick with Science when you begin reading these debates.]
When it became almost crystal clear from practically every study coming in that our homeworld is indeed warming, the
argument shifted to whether this warming was being caused by human civilization.
I would like to side step that argument. It doesn’t matter whether this warming is caused by the sun, the moon, or too many humans, rice paddies
and bovines contributing to the methane cycle.
We as a species have the ability to cool our world easily if Ron Paul only had a science officer with a bit more Vulcan.
[I’d like to apply for such a position when or if it opens by the way.]
Water vapor contribues ~60%+ of the green house effect. Carbon dioxide ~25%, and the rest is
caused by trace green house gases such as methane, CFCs, etc. This is why
dropping the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere is so important. It’s
only at a third of a percent of the total atmosphere, yet contributes ~25% of the greenhouse effect.
We can drop the percentage of carbon dioxde in the atmosphere from the ~380 ppm it currently
is climbing past, easily. It was at ~240, two hundred years ago and I personally
believe we should try to stabilize sea level at a slightly lower level by lowering the carbon count.
Yes Virginia, the CO2 count is 50+% higher than it was
two hundred years ago.
Remember, wealthy individuals who control not only the
boards of many an energy conglomerate, but our government for all intensive purposes as well,
have been able to maintain the status quo for almost a century. We as
a species have the ability to cool this planet and it is somewhat prudent we do so, since it actually quite simple and the
uncertainty is such that catastrophic scenarios should be avoided at all costs.
Do you really want to risk sea levels rising?
I am advocating Ron Paul in ’08 as someone who believes
we need to act gobally as one species and not just to simply avert any possible catastrophic warming scenarios, but to create
a RealCiv, … … something worthy of a Heinlein novel
There isn’t a majik bullet, but there is a damn
