For those who like to pull their weight when it comes to saving the
planet, it really is essential to sequester a minimum quota of carbon
as an independent, free human being - grow Hemp and make babies

In fact 21 atoms of C21H30O2, that is THC, are in fact carbon atoms,
and in the human body are quite few carbon atoms → on average, a 70Kg
human body contains roughly 7x10^27 carbon carbon atoms, slightly
less for a baby, but to get to 70 Kg, one must start with a baby - so
go on, get to work me gritties :D

  Save the planet, grow C21H30O2 today :)

  Save the planet, make babies today :)

 How many atoms are in the human body?

For those not quite sure how big 7 times by 10 to the power 27 really
is, here are some other ways to say it:

 * Seven billion billion billion (that is, multiplying each of those
   numbers, 7, a billion, another billion, and a third billion.

 * 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

 * 7 thousand million million million million

 * a really bloody huge number

In comparison, in our Milky way galaxy, there are roughly 100 billion
stars, a MUCH smaller number, and similarly the weight of the Milky
way is roughly 100 billion times heavier than the Sun in our solar

Our Milky Way galaxy is about 100,000 to 180,000 light years in

Andromeda galaxy will apparently collide with the Milky Way in about
2 billion years time, and it's about 2 million light years away from

What about the largest known galaxy in our entire Universe?
That is presently named IC 1101, and is estimated at 6 million light
years in diameter and has about 100 trillion stars in it, that is,
100,000,000,000,000 stars:

And the number of stars in the entire Universe I hear you ask?
About 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, that is, 1x10^24 stars!

Aand … even this must be -multiplied- by 7,000 just to get the number
of carbon atoms in an average human body.

That is, for every of the average of 100s of billions of stars in the
estimated 10 trillions of galaxies, adding all those up, we need to
put them all in a metaphorical basket, and then duplicate that basked
thousands of times - 7 thousand times to be reasonably in the
ballpark of scientific estimates - just to get to the number of
carbon atoms in a human body!

So, get to work folks - you gotta sequester that carbon so you just
make sure an make those babies!


PS: If you ain't seen that 'tube video below, it be recommended it do
- simple, elegant, and a mere few meggabites in size :)

Subject: CO2 Study – Effect On Plant Growth

*CO2 Study – Effect On Plant Growth*

*While proven and factual it may be beyond the brain-washed to come to
grips with reality. This makes a total idiocy of current climate change
nonsense and show how stupid and **beguile politicans and other small minds

Most plant species studied appear to have optimal growth characteristics
with CO2 at well above current levels, in particular at from 743 ppm
(measured) to 2700 ppm (estimate of combination of CO2 and water usage

That is, plant life on this planet appears optimized for atmospheric
concentration levels of around 1200 ppm.  (Scientists report that over the
past 300 million years the average CO2 has been 1,200 ppm.)

Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations At 400 PPM Are Still Dangerously Low For
Life On Earth

Plants and therefore most life will die if CO2 falls below 180 ppm. Plants
thrive at 1,200 ppm.

Over the Earth's history, atmospheric CO2 concentrations have ranged from
180 ppm to 7000 ppm, see Figure 1 below. On that scale we are in fact today
barely above the Earth's record extreme lows.

Figure 1: Atmospheric CO2 concentration is just barely above the
life-sustaining levels for the complex vascular plants of 150 ppm.

   … It’s a fact that biologists have shown that once the atmospheric CO2
level falls below the 500 ppm level, plants really begin to suffer. Many of
us have seen the video showing


*This shows how plants grow faster under higher CO2 concentrations with
growth variation of time lapse video over 42 days of growing Cowpea at CO2
concentrations of 450 ppm and 1270 ppm producing a 44 % total biomass gain.*

Study: why CO2 levels are lower during global cold periods

As recently as 18,000 years ago, at the height of the most recent major
glaciation, CO2 dipped to its lowest level in recorded history at 180 ppm,
low enough to stunt and retard plant growth.

*This is only 30 ppm above a level that would result in the death of plants
due to CO2 starvation.*

 While climate change alarmists absurdly claim CO2 is a pollutant, they
neglect to tell you that without CO2, we would all die of starvation
because every ecosystem on the planet would almost instantly collapse. If
CO2 were dropped to zero, Earth would become a barren global desert of
death entirely incapable of supporting human life at all.

Even more shockingly, most climate change cultists still have no idea that
their own bodies are made of carbon, and even the THC found in all the weed
they’re smoking contains 21 carbon elements per molecule (C21H30O2).
Vegetarians and vegans apparently don’t realize that all the fruits,
vegetables, nuts and seeds they eat are also made of carbon, as is their
own blood, skin, hormones and tissues. At the same time these people are
denouncing carbon as an “evil pollutant,” they are eating carbon, drinking
carbon, smoking carbon and even making babies made of carbon.

  … as CO2 levels are raised by 1,000 ppm photosynthesis increases
  proportionately resulting in more sugars and carbohydrates
   available for plant growth.

Plant Growth and Carbon Dioxide for Maximum Yield

Plant growth requires a tremendous amount of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). At the
center of every plant cell is an atom of Carbon, which the plant has
absorbed from the surrounding air. When all other growing conditions are
kept ideal, Carbon Dioxide becomes the growth limiting factor. This means,
as you increase the CO2 in your garden area, you will also increase the
plant growth rates – and your yields.
The ideal level of CO2 supplementation to maximize plant growth in a well
maintained garden is generally 1500 ppm.

The optimal CO2 concentrations for the growth of three perennial grass

Here, we examined the optimal atmospheric CO2 concentration effect on CO2
fertilization and further on the growth of three perennial grasses in
growth chambers with the CO2 concentration
 at 400, 600, 800, 1000, and 1200 ppm, respectively.

  … the CO2 fertilization effect may sustain up to about 1000 ppm for leaf
photosynthesis [46, 49] and 1800 ppm for grain yield of crops [50]. For
example, Xu [23] examined the optimal atmospheric
CO2 concentration of the CO2 fertilization effect on the growth of winter
wheat and found that the optimal atmospheric CO2 concentration was 894 and
968 ppm for total biomass and leaf photosynthesis…

 … Elevated CO2 effects on plant biomass…..

We found very strong CO2 fertilization effects on the aboveground and total
biomass of the three species. The optimal CO2 levels for the aboveground
biomass were 945, 915, and 1151 ppm, and for
the total biomass were 915, 1178, and 1386 ppm for tall fescue, perennial
ryegrass, and Kentucky bluegrass, respectively (Fig.1). However, an optimal
CO2 of 895 ppm for the belowground was found only for the tall fescue,
while no obviously optimal CO2 of the belowground biomass for the other two
species was detected.

Beyond the optimum, further elevating the ambient CO2 concentration
significantly reduced the growth of perennial grasses, indicating the
adverse impacts of high CO2 concentration on the grass species.

 … we quantified the relationship between CO2 and WUE [water use
efficiency] of perennial ryegrass through quadratic models and found that
the optimal CO2 for WUE would occur at about 2700 ppm,
which was much higher than those of the other two species (Fig. 2).
