    World's first hemp car is creating some buzz!
    by Thom Hartmann

    It sounds like something out of a Cheech and Chong movie, but the world's most eco-friendly car is made entirely of hemp. The car, known as the Kestrel, was designed in Canada, where unlike the US, the government supports the industrial hemp industry. The vehicle is fully electric, it can go 100 miles between charges, and it has a top speed of about 55 miles an hour.

    The body of the vehicle is hemp-composite, which is lighter than glass, yet entirely impact resistant. The Kestrel is going into full production later this year, and it's expected to have an affordable price tag. Although the Kestrel isn't made from the type of grass that will get you high, this hemp-car is definitely creating some green technology buzz.

    Kestrel is probably the first to put it on the market. But it is not the original hemp car. Or does it run on bio-diesel hemp oil as the Canadian Hemp Car did. Ford used Hemp fiber as part of the car body, along with soy and some other fibers. It ran on ethanol and before he could build his fleet of cars from the ground up alcohol prohibition replaced the farmers ethanol with Rockefeller's fossil fools gasoline. Just like Hemp tax prohibited production in the 30's and then Nixon added it as a schedule#1 narcotic in the 70's and a treaty was signed behind closed doors giving Canada exclusive rights to grow Hemp in North America and Chili in South America. Except for those patriots going outside of the bogus law, Most fiber still comes from Europe and China. Canada is producing more but still under government restrictions. The US believes Monsanto is the new family farmer here.

    So we have hemp cars that can run on ethanol alcohol except its illegal to distill your own. We have veggie oil from hemp to the original diesel that ran on Peanut Oil. Electric is another red herring, fossil fools gimmick in most cases. Running the generators mostly on coal, with transmission losses from the power plant to the home there is actually more pollution overall. Better for traffic jams and smog levels in the city but not the planet. If the electricity could be produced with solar, wind or waves or bio-diesel or bio-mass, then it would be better. I've heard of a new ceramic engine that could replace iron and steel and even less coal burning for that industry. One novel idea is to drive less. I started driving in 69 and it was 35 cents a gallon. No problem driving around all night on a few bucks. Good to see alternatives although Kestrel has been pushing this at least a decade. Lotus and Mercedes have been using Hemp plastic in parts and upholstery. Thanks Tom. Keep it in the light and expose the status quo in darkness for what it is.
