Will Hempcrete absorb the pollutants that are killing my fellow St Louis Neighbors?





I didn't put 2 and 2 together in re that Hempcrete maybe a solution to a problem for StLouis area homes that are being affected by pollution coming from Nuclear Waste buried at Bridgeton Landfill.

I'm researching: "Will Hempcrete absorb the pollutants that are killing my fellow St Louis Neighbors?"

I was listening to a local State House Member talk (skip to 12:00) about "Methane: bubbles coming out of the ground in mudd puddles" & how the "Govt Officials who work in a building all get sick with Cancer".  To make matters worse: "a Local Landfill has an ongoing (underground) fire that is getting closer and closer to the Nuke waste buried during the Manhattan Project by our own USA Govt."

I know through my research that Hempcrete absorbs pollutants such as CO2 & the glues used in construction materials, etc.  

I'm researching: "Will Hempcrete do the same for these pollutants that are killing my fellow St Louis Neighbors?"

I've contacted a few people and will fill you in later on the findings.  I think it will work and create healthy homes.

No Surprise Sen Blunt Does Not Support Hemp




At Least one-out-of-two Senators supports Hemp Farming in Missouri.  I just learned via an email- see below-I just received from Senator Roy Blunt.  This really is no surprise because I've noticed that the Missouri Senators always seem to split the vote on most of the stuff that comes to vote in the Senate.

Mr Blunts reply did spark something in my mind when he brought up the

Unfounded belief that Law Enforcement not being able to tell the difference between Hemp and Medical Cannabis.

This falls right inline with all Repukitans denial of things that would help America.  The total disregard that climate change is affecting the World is tops of my list of untruths and unfounded beliefs that are supported by the misinformation system straight from the Koch Brothers themselves.

This also makes me realize that maybe my note to his office did not have enough current information from Law Enforcement, Scientist, State Governors, and even his own partner-in-crime in the US Senate Kentuckys Own Senator Mitch McConnel.  Who has been the driver behind Kentucky's legalization of Hemp Farming.  

So here is a copy of what my next communication will be to Roy Blunts office with data and links to-

Also pointed out in the University of Kentucky study by Valerie Vantrees- Industrial Hemp: Global Operations, Local Implications. Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Kentucky, 1998.

Even the USAs own Ag Department has studied how Industrial Hemp will help farmers and is easily to tell the difference between the two plants-Kraenzel, David G et al. "Industrial hemp as an alternative crop in North Dakota." Agricultural Economics Report 402 (1998).

Here is Mr Blunts Reply to my original notification- I do like how he addresses me and keeps me in his email address book:

Dear Clean Energy not Oil, Coal, and Facked Gas Scott:
Thank you for contacting me regarding S. 134, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015.
As you know, S. 134 amends the Controlled Substances Act to remove industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana.  Previously, I have supported provisions in the Farm Bill and through appropriations that would permit State Departments of Agriculture to administer hemp pilot programs in states that have legalized industrial hemp.  
While I support a comprehensive agriculture policy including specialty crops, I have concerns that legalization of industrial hemp could have unintended consequences.  We must ensure that legalization of industrial hemp would not impede the ability of law enforcement agencies to enforce our drug laws effectively.   
Currently, S. 134 is pending in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Should this legislation come before the full Senate for consideration, I will carefully consider and be sure to keep your thoughts and concerns in mind. 
Again, thank you for contacting me. I look forward to continuing our conversation on Facebook and Twitter about the important issues facing Missouri and the country. I also encourage you to visit mywebsite to learn more about where I stand on the issues and sign-up for my e-newsletter.

Sincere regards,

Roy Blunt
United States Senator

Looks Like Sen McCaskill Supports Hemp Farming


Dear Mr. Scott,
Thank you for contacting me regarding industrial hemp and hemp farming.  I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.
With my support, Congress passed and the President signed into law the Agricultural Act of 2014 (P.L. 113-79) pdf.  Commonly referred to as the Farm Bill, this legislation sets policy and funding levels for agriculture and nutrition programs for the next five years.  
The Farm Bill provides critical support to Missouri farmers and ranchers, protects nutrition support for low-income families and other Missourians in need, promotes conservation, and encourages research on biofuels that advance our energy independence, all while helping to reduce spending by $23 billion over the next ten years.
Within this comprehensive legislation, the 2014 Farm Bill included an amendment allowing legalized hemp production in some instances.  Specifically, the amendment allows State Agriculture Departments, colleges, and universities to grow hemp, defined as the non-drug oilseed and fiber varieties of Cannabis, for academic or agricultural research purposes, although it applies only to states where industrial hemp farming is already legal under state law.
As you may know, Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon has also introduced the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015 (S. 134).  This bill would differentiate the definition of "hemp" from "marijuana" and would permit industrial hemp production based on state law.  I understand the many potential uses of hemp and will consider its benefits should legislation related to hemp farming be considered by the full Senate.
The Industrial Hemp Farming Act has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee where it awaits consideration Should this or similar legislation come to the Senate floor for a vote, I will be sure to keep your views in mind.
Again, thank you for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other issue.
Sincerely,
Claire McCaskill
United States Senator
P.S. If you would like more information about resources that can help Missourians, or what I am doing in the Senate on your behalf, please sign up for my email newsletter athttp://mccaskill.senate.gov.

Interconnected Carbon Nanosheets Derived from Hemp for Ultrafast Supercapacitors with High Energy



This is where I'm headed with the MOhemp Energy inventions: Hemp Batteries, Supercapacitors, Hemp Lignin, Energy Storage, etc

Abstract copied from: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/ipdf/10.1021/nn400731g

Abstract Image
We created unique interconnected partially graphitic carbon nanosheets (10–30 nm in thickness) with high specific surface area (up to 2287 m2 g–1), significant volume fraction of mesoporosity (up to 58%), and good electrical conductivity (211–226 S m–1) from hemp bast fiber. The nanosheets are ideally suited for low (down to 0 °C) through high (100 °C) temperature ionic-liquid-based supercapacitor applications: At 0 °C and a current density of 10 A g–1, the electrode maintains a remarkable capacitance of 106 F g–1. At 20, 60, and 100 °C and an extreme current density of 100 A g–1, there is excellent capacitance retention (72–92%) with the specific capacitances being 113, 144, and 142 F g–1, respectively. These characteristics favorably place the materials on a Ragone chart providing among the best power–energy characteristics (on an active mass normalized basis) ever reported for an electrochemical capacitor: At a very high power density of 20 kW kg–1 and 20, 60, and 100 °C, the energy densities are 19, 34, and 40 Wh kg–1, respectively. Moreover the assembled supercapacitor device yields a maximum energy density of 12 Wh kg–1, which is higher than that of commercially available supercapacitors. By taking advantage of the complex multilayered structure of a hemp bast fiber precursor, such exquisite carbons were able to be achieved by simple hydrothermal carbonization combined with activation. This novel precursor-synthesis route presents a great potential for facile large-scale production of high-performance carbons for a variety of diverse applications including energy storage.
