temporarily began issuing) in order to grow hemp in support of the war effort. The hemp plant produces strong industrial fibers that at this time were in short supply because most had to be imported from overseas. The film shows a history of hemp and its’ products, how it should be properly grown, and how it can be processed into rope, cloth, cordage, and other products. I pulled this quote from the 13 minute film Hemp for Victory, which is freely available to watch on YouTube.com or download from Archive.org. “American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as well as of our industries.”(Evans, 1942).
Filburn in 1942. This was a landmark case because it was based upon an American citizen who was producing a crop (wheat) for his own consumption for animals on his farm. Based on the New Deal, issued by President Franklin D Roosevelt, the Agricultural Act of 1938 was produced. This act provided increased Federal control on crop production as well as other things to stabilize the farming industry and crop prices. There were quotas set for crop production to stabilize crop prices, as a result of the legislation of the Agricultural Act.
Referring the map to Document 2, explains that an ideal climate average for the growth of cane sugar is sixty-eight degrees Fahrenheit to ninety degrees Fahrenheit which slaves are forcefully working and growing sugar out in the heat. It is an evident fact the British, French, and Spanish bought this land using slaves in an undesirable climate to grow lots of sugar on their land which pushed the sugar trade. Displayed in Document 6, are requirements of what a sugar plantation of five hundred acres should require. A few of the requirements are a boiling house, distilling house, rum house, and salt provisions. All of these houses on this one large piece of land help advance the sugar trade by the production of sugar all being done in one place.
Platinum is the highest rating of going “green.” With the help of a non-profit organization called Greensburg Greentown they are working together to help Greensburg reach its town goal of using 100% of renewable energy 100% of the time. Greensburg Greentown was created to teach residents about living Green. Greensburg, Kansas is working hard to put their town back on the map! Greensburg is now the greenest town in the
As Source C shows, it actually takes just as much fuel—and thus, just as much pollution—to ship a small load from a local farm as to ship a large load from a farther location. . To buy local means to ignore farm conditions, ignore packaging techniques and simply focus on the distance food is shipped (Source C). As source C continues, it is evident that buying “local” in an urban area from a factory-like farm is simply not what one would expect Instead of choosing to buy groceries because they are grown in the state one lives in, people should buy groceries because the farm they are grown on is safe and environmentally
Bio-diesel is a relatively easy to produce, and low cost fuel. By using farm grown soy beans and processing them, it requires less effort than diesel. “Biodiesel may be used in any diesel automotive engine in its pure form or blended with petroleum-based diesel. No modifications are required, and the result is a less-expensive, renewable, clean-burning fuel” (Helmenstine). This fuel could easily replace diesel fuel with ample product availability.
This battery allows consumers to mow their lawns more frequently without having to recharge the battery too often. Toro’s innovation allowed the company to develop a new product that is different from the lawnmowers in the current market. Product positioning is a marketing technique intended to present products in the best possible light to different target audiences (Inc., 2013). Toro’s three product positioning strategies against their competitors are consumer convenience, consumer values, and consumer health. Scout is convenient to consumers because it allows the consumer freedom of time, reduces frustration from heat, and limits the continual purchase of gasoline.
Also Ethanol is biodegradable which means that if your car leaks, it won’t hurt the environment! The use of Ethanol supports farmers and creates domestic jobs. And because Ethanol is produced domestically, from domestically grown crops, it reduces dependence on foreign oil and increases the nation’s energy independence. In conclusion, alternative sources should be used as they are good for the environment and the economy and they can reduce the amount of greenhouse gases on our
Wind turbines do not release emissions that pollute the air and they do not require water for cooling. Not only does wind power provide a clean source of electricity, it helps keep electric rates low and protects consumers against fossil fuel price volatility. Through these facts, America can see a vast amount of benefits. To recap, these benefits include: reduced consumption of fossil fuels, exponential reduction of water and air pollutions, creation of jobs, and can be used as energy for virtually anything. This energy is free and inexhaustible; meaning it is renewable and infinite source of energy.
Professor Ian Campbell from Australia's Peter MacCallum Cancer Center says that no scientific evidence showing that GM food is harmful to people's health has been presented to date. (Campbell p.4) It illustrates that GM foods are still not unsafe to people. "As long as the GM food comes out in the markets, it means that it has been proved they won’t hurt people’s health," Yunbo Luo states," and GM foods will be digested in our stomachs without changing people’s own genes at all, which is just like other traditional foods." I am for him and some of my classmates as well. We have learned that modern biological technology in high school and got to know the safety of GM foods.
