A study, published by Nature Sustainability earlier this year, has found that indoor-grown Cannabis has lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions ranging from 2,283 to 5,184 kg CO2-equivalent per kg of dried flower (2.3-5.2 kg CO2-equivalent per gram of dried flower). 🤯

The life cycle GHG emissions are largely attributed to electricity production and natural gas consumption from indoor environmental controls, high-intensity grow lights and the supply of carbon dioxide for accelerated plant growth.

Emissions associated with growing 1 ounce of cannabis indoors is equivalent with burning 7-16 gallons of gasoline, depending on where in the US it's grown:.

In contrast, sun-grown Cannabis is typically carbon neutral or even carbon negative.

We need to bring the crop into the sun.

I don't believe that shit for one second.......However, if the problem really is that severe then that would be a REALLY good argument for legalization, let people grow in the sun instead of criminalising them and forcing them indors....where they damage the outdoors LOL

Wonder what the real carbon footprint looks like for electric cars?
Pretty bad... the process for extracting resources to make the batteries they use is not any better for the environment than using fossil fuels... and batteries don't last forever.... and obviously using the electricity to charge them, and disposal of the batteries. Unless we go back to pre industrialized society, we're gonna need to rape the planet in one way or another to keep up our way of life... there are just too many humans and most don't give it a second thought.

I have a solution to the water rising problem. 1st my reasoning ( I do smoke a lot ) If you take a cup of water and drop a rock into it...what happens?....water rises .....take the rock out...what happens? water drops....Okay if everyone went to the ocean once a year and dug out their weight in sand...packed it up on shore......We now have more land on land and more room for the water....okay......if you're still with me....get big dredging machines to dig big deep holes in the ocean and put that dirt on thew land...presto....no more water rise.....Find Greta I think she needs to hear this..... I just figure if we all pitch in we can save the low lands lol..........

All mids for cartridges 😆
You mentioned cartridges so I have to ask-maybe you know. Why do the cartridges all claim to be 90-94% thc and yet they don't get you high like a decent bud? Imagine the carbon footprint that makes and they don't even work...

It's OK. I just checked. Ocean levels haven't changed since we first built stone buildings by the water. Turns out the whole carbon thing is a cash grabbing scam. Leonard Nemoy was the guy they used to push cooling. And then they switched it 180. Run your grow on coal and crude oil if you can. Makes no difference.
