The Kitchen Ninja: phillydrifter: [www.hempadvocates.org image 320x240]/SERIOUSLYSo you want them to cut down the rainforest to make room for growing hemp?
To The Escape Zeppelin!: Wait, didn't we just get a story last week about how the rate of Amazon deforestation has never been lower?
Nightjars: I have Amazon Plus, so my trees always arrive within two days.
SurfaceTension: The problem with cutting the rain forest is that it is being replaced with grazing land for cattle that go for things like McDonalds and Burger King.However, the soil isn't right for plants that grow on grazing land. After a few years the nutrients get depleted and new land has to be cleared. Even worse, the rain forest doesn't return to the land that had been cleared. It's a crappy, crappy use of natural resources./or at least that's what i was told years ago by my college professor
Bacontastesgood: Nightjars: I have Amazon Plus, so my trees always arrive within two days.They're starting to freak me out. I ordered something sunday night and it came mid-morning monday. I hear people are getting same day. I mean... holy crap.
dready zim: And of course large scale changes in the fauna and flora of the planet will not affect the climate IN ANY WAY. Especially getting rid of trees on the equator where they provide a cooling effect through transpiration. NO EFFECT AT ALL.
Baryogenesis: I ordered a coffee maker Sunday night with standard 3-5 day shipping and it got to my house Tuesday afternoon. Most other places don't even get the item shipped in 48 hours, let alone delivered. I live in a small town no where near an Amazon distribution center or even an airport. I'm not sure how they do it, but I like it.
