1941 Hemp Car

Henry Fords 1941 Hemp Car was supposed to "Change the World"!

Q) Why were Diesel & Fords Technology Buried!?  A) To Suppress Natural Energy Solutions "N.E.S"! 

After waiting and waiting, I finally watched the Saturday CBS TV series "The Henry Fords Innovation Nation", episode that featured his 1941 Hemp Car, And....They Lied!
I still can't believe what Propaganda still goes on! They Never mentioned "HEMP", Not Once! Host, Mo Rocca, gave credit to the Soy-bean! He Never Mentions that Fords Car was Made from Hemp and Ran on Hemp Fuel, also the Strength & Lightness, 10 times stronger than steel and many times lighter, Half the Weight of other cars and Fords Vision for the People to Grow your own and Sell it, or what about the Profound Environmental Implications!
Fords 1941 car was the Greenest car on Earth (so far)! History is written by the biggest bank accounts and who also control the media!  We Should be Utilizing Cannabis 60k superior ways instead of Destroying the Earth, just like Henry had envisioned.

2019 - Henry Ford Invented Cars that were Made from, and Ran on; Wild Hemp! "Pollution" has been Killing more People every year, than Wars, Car Accidents, and Homicides Combined! 
     Henry Ford introduced the Greenest, Healthiest & most practical Automobile in history on August 13, 1941! Ford debuted his car made from and fueled by Cannabis Hemp. This Amazing Car was 4.7 times better for the Environment & Earth than Today's Electric Vehicles!

     It was recognized by Popular Mechanics, Dec. 1941, “Pinch Hitters for Defense.” Ford did so for the sake of American farmers without any knowledge that his idea would be the key to reversing the climate crisis.

     Hats off to Henry Ford. True genius is often decades before its time (even though he was Right on time)! Utilizing the strongest soft fiber on Earth, "hemp"!" Ford's 12 years of hemp research, gave the world a glimpse of the automobile of tomorrow, 10 times Lighter and Stronger than steel!
     Its tough panels molded under hydraulic pressure of 1,500 pounds per square inch (psi) from a recipe that calls for 70 percent of cellulose fibers from wheat straw, hemp and sisal plus 30 percent resin binder. The plastic car weighs a ton, 1,000 pounds lighter than a comparable steel car, about Half the total Weight of other cars.

     Their First Engines were made to Run on Alcohol. In 1892, Rudolph Diesel invented the diesel engine to run on vegetable and seed oils from hemp, then wanting to use "Ethanol".

     Ford wanted to run his Model T off of ethanol, Ford famously stated; “there’s enough alcohol in one year’s yield of 1 acre of potatoes to drive the machinery necessary to cultivate the fields for one hundred years.” However, the "gasoline industry" lobbied hard to keep alcohol taxes high and drop the price of gasoline. Around this time, Rudolf Diesel was Murdered! During Alcohol Prohibition, Ford changed his Fuel method to run on vegetable oils as Diesel originally had done.
    Ford was soon "Slandered" with the Worst possible stories, just like what would happen to "Cannabbis". Americans beleived the "Manipulated Media Stories" and Fords Dream disappeared.
     Ford had envisioned everyone growing about 5 Plants, including hemp and selling scraps to all companies including Ford Motors.

     Half of Americans were farmers when Ford made/built plastic cars with; hemp, wheat straw, soybeans and sisal. Nobody Knew that incorporating it into one's Diet, would be "Preventative Medicine". Henry knew, that Selling it and Using it gives US tremendous Freedom and Prosperity. They did not want Us to grow for free, our own: Food, Fuel, Medicine, Clothing, Etc.
     The end of N.E.S. had begun, the rest is "corrupt history" written by the corporations. This is also the start of why OUR infrastructures are not made of Hemp/Cannabis making everything from bicycles to Bridges last 10 times longer, stronger & Lighter at an incredibly cheaper cost! Hemp seeds have provided a combustible fuel oil throughout human history. More importantly, though, the same high cellulose level that makes hemp ideal for paper also makes it perfect for ethanol fuel production.

    Ethanol is the cleanest-burning liquid bio-alternative to gasoline. In one test, an unleaded gasoline automobile engine produced a thick, black carbon residue in its exhaust, while the tailpipe of a modified ethanol engine tested for the same 3,500 miles remained pristine and residue-free. Ethanol is derived from plant cellulose. Plants absorb carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight and produce oxygen and cellulose, which contains the sun's energy captured in plant cells. When ethanol combusts, it releases energy, water vapor, and carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide is then absorbed by plants, along with water and sunlight, to create more oxygen and cellulose. It is a clean and sustainable cycle.

      Since gasoline engines are a primary source of carbon monoxide and greenhouse gases, alternative fuels such as ethanol could contribute significantly to the rejuvenation of our atmospheric air quality. Hemp provides a sustainable, renewable, and natural alternative to toxic fossil fuels. Henry Ford grew cannabis/hemp on his estate after 1937 possibly to prove the cheapness of methanol production at Iron Mountain.
     By the year 2047, the world will have burned all of its proven petroleum reserves,* while world coal reserves may last 100-300 years longer. But the decision to continue burning coal has serious drawbacks. This high-sulfur coal is responsible for our acid raid which already kills 50,000 Americans and 5,000-10,000 Canadians annually. In addition, the acid destroy the forests, rivers and animals.
     Conversion to biomass fuels should begin immediately to stop both planetary pollution and lemming-like "Genocide", and to make us naturally energy "Independent". Everyone can grow a Clean, Renewable Fuel Source, ect., "Cannabis!

     2019 - For over 80 years, the worlds greatest country ( & citizens) has been misled by the corruption. All populations in most countries are All innocent Victims. Utilizing Cannabis would Eliminate Most of Our Pain and Suffering while producing Environmental Healing! The Reason Why we allow this, is because we are Not "Collectively" on the "same page",the power of "knowledge" would indeed also produce "Unity". The Cannabis Plant is Obviously the Most Powerful Plant on Earth and most corporations are Not Utilizing it in 60,000 superior products/ uses.

     Pot was legal throughout human history and in 80% of history's Textiles, but humans did not know "that much" about it...like Today! Aside from 1974 and 2000, the Best year for Research was 2013. Turns out, Cannabis Helps Most people with Most Illnesses.
     We should have been Utilizing Cannabis, Not Trees, Please! Not Oil, Not Plastics, Not Wood, Not Paper, Not Paint, Not Concrete, Not Pesticides, Not Chemicals, Not Man made Materials, Not Energy Plants and nearly "Not Toxic Everything"!

     We messed up big-time allowing Prohibition, Our forefathers even used it as MONEY! You could pay your Taxes with it! Henry Ford wanted the same culture, everyone growing & selling to all industries, however big $ had other plans. Making "marijuana" illegal was a Corrupt Con, the Worst thing that could have happened to All Life on Earth.
      Right now, we rely mostly on leveling forests and taking things out from beneath the ground, using up Earths Precious Natural Resources while Polluting Air, Water & Ground instead of Utilizing Cannabis, that's what's destroying the Earth. Farmers are literally going to save the Earth, growing the raw resources that are required to manufacture what we need.

      The Earth will always survive, however, we as a species and just about every other species on the planet will not survive if we continue on the path that we are now on. And that's not my opinion, that's what the international panel of climate control has stated.

      Here's to the new age of Utilizing Cannabis, the most Productive plant that creates; super Strong, light Weight, Carbon Negative components & Materials made from Hemp. It's up to Farmers to save the world by Growing for the Utilization of Cannabis in 60k ways! Instead of Utilizing Cannabis for the last 100 yrs., we have been Using up precious natural resources while Polluting, destroying Earths environments, and now global warming is causing natural disasters.
     You may want to Google "Ford village industries", fascinating how he envisioned small farmers being the backbone of industry. His vision had Not come true, major munitions industries like DuPont had derailed it by encouraging men like Anslinger. If it Had Evolved, we would Be Living an opposite Culture and an entirely Different planet. Most everything would have been made from plants including our fuels. The climate crisis would Not be looming.

   Conversations with PotMan, his old high school Friend and Bruce M. Dietzen
Are there valid reasons why WE use petroleum based products over organic plant/hemp fuels? Read on & Uncover the Truth.

-- PotMan : Which is Better, Gas or Hemp bio Fuel?
-- PotMans old high school Friend: I think the big reason we went with oil, besides "availability", is that the Organic fuel products tend to be highly "corrosive" to metal and therefore damage engines faster.
-- PM : I respectfully disagree about both. Availability? Henry Ford had 25% of the S.West using his biofuels before Big$ retaliated. They lobbied (bribed) congress by making Alcohol more expensive than Gasoline and also our gov. poisoned 10k citizens to scare US away from Using it! The richest men in America were all in on it, Carnegie, DuPont, Mellon, etc. And  Todays technology easily solves the corrosive issues.
-- PM's old Friend: Yes, the oil barons exerted their considerable influence. I'm not saying I agree. I'm just saying why. At the time, it was believed that there was a never ending supply of petroleum. As I said, not very forward thinking, yes, technology has improved engine corrosion issues, but not solved them. I think engines using petroleum based products still outlast engines using organic fuels.
  - PM : I again disagree with you old friend. Ok, Let's go Ask my fb friend, Bruce, who Rebuilt Hemp Cars using Fords old technology. He also sold one of his hemp Cars to former Tonight Show Host, Comedian & Car Enthusiast Jay Leno.
-- Let's meet Bruce Michael Dietzen, a farmer/engineer, who re-created Fords hemp car and vision:
-- Bruce Michael Dietzen :
   I have viewed numerous articles and studies which claim that fermented fuels (alcohol) have far less pollutants and additional crud than petroleum gas. Hence they burn cleaner and leave less crap in the engine.
   I have run the Cannabis Car on 100% BioButanol and had no problems. The exhaust was clearly cleaner as well, just by putting a tissue over the tailpipe. The difference is huge.
   The Oil companies spread fake news about how biofuels are bad. It's all bullcrap. Any Car made in the last decade can run on 100% alcohol based fuel with Only a Minor Modification which heats the fuel before it entered the engine. It's actually better on the car and far superior with regards to carbon footprint.
   The very best fuel however with regards to footprint is green gasoline made by pyrolizing plant residues. The vapors generated via this process are converted to methanol and then to gasoline which is 100% identical with petroleum gasoline. The upside of this process is that 1/3 of the biomass used to make this fuel ends up as Biochar which is then tilled back into agricultural soils thereby sequestering a lot of carbon which was removed by photosynthesis.  If all of our gasoline were green gasoline, which is carbon negative, it would without a doubt be the best way to mitigate climate change by a huge margin.

     Bottom line, Petroleum Gasoline is Terrible for Engines and the Environment. Just about any bio based fuel is better for both. 

--  PM: 2018 - Today I spoke with a gentleman who said wanted to know, what is the hemp car "carbon base"? I told him that Fords car itself and buildings made with hemp and "hempcrete" are carbon neutral, but he was talking about the "Fuel", so can you please tell me about "carbon base fuel"?
-- Bruce M. Dietzen: Frank, Not sure what he meant by the phrase carbonbase. But what is important, is that making only 15% of everything mankind makes every year from crops like hemp, and processing these crops are not raw materials in manufacturing facilities run exclusively would avoid and sequester roughly 3 billion metric tonnes of CO2 every year making it the most effective means to mitigate climate crisis there is today.
    Now, back to Mr. Ford, his 1941 prototype was made from roughly 50% crop material, which if it had been processed in carbon neutral manufacturing facilities would have sequestered 1.65 lbs of CO2 for every lb. of crop material used to make his car. The other half of the material used was mostly steel which is carbon positive. One offset the other rendering the car nearly carbon neutral when it came out of the factory. Next component of the question is how it was fueled?
    Michael Wang of Argonne Labs did a study in 2007 and concluded that biofuels made from agricultural residue (scraps from the field) added 86% less CO2 into the atmosphere than gasoline. Wang may not have been aware of Ford's efforts because he thought that some amount of petroleum needed to be used in the process of refining and shipping this type of biofuel. Ford however, answered this by running his hemp residue ethanol in his Fordster tractors and never intend for "fuel" to be transported at all. In his utopian view, every family would have 5 acres of land where they would not only produce food, livestock, their own fuel AND.... HERES THE BIG PART, ARE YOU READY....MOST OF THE RAW MATERIALS CONSUMED BY INDUSTRY TO MAKE!  YES MOST EVERYTHING MANUFACTURED. 

     Fords car had a lifetime carbon footprint of about 3 metric tonnes vs 12 tonnes for the average EV today. And it's all because he insisted that everything possible be made from crops or crop residues.
    Advance that mindset to today. Right now, here in the USA it is possible to grow the 1 billion metric tonnes of hemp needed to make 15% of everything the world needs...all without effecting food supply. The US has 22% of the world's cultivated land. So theoretically, we could realize Fords vision of making most things from hemp. Not just 15% but more than 50%!

     I would appreciate your thoughts on the matter, especially if you are an expert in the climate sciences. If I have made some incorrect assumptions or calculations, please correct me.

     If you already make raw materials or finished products from plants please contact me. Let’s calculate together just how much CO2 your products could be drawing down. And if you are a manufacturer and are interested in making even a small percentage of your product from plant material I would like to help you succeed.

     Finally, if you are versed at writing proposed legislation let’s get together.  Both the Electric Vehicle and Solar Energy industries have prospered due to governmental support and consumer tax credits. I think it’s imperative that we start working with our law makers to provide similar incentives to both consumers and manufacturers who want to help save the planet.

      PotMan: Earths Ecosystems are quit Fragile. The average person has no idea we are destroying Everything instead of using hemp for Nearly All Carbon Negative Products and in 60k More Susatinable, better ways!  


Ford strongly felt that there were many positive aspects to rural life.[1] At the same time, he recognized that the promise of high wages was encouraging young people to discard the agrarian life of their parents and move to the cities. The spreading of industrialization (due in part, Ford knew, to his very own factory system) was making farming less attractive and giving farmers less to do in the winter.[2] Ford developed the village industries program as a way to bring manufacturing jobs to the countryside, allowing residents to reap the economic advantages without giving up their agricultural heritage.[1] His village industries were intended to strengthen rural communities by providing jobs to unemployed and under-employed local residents,[3] allowing farmers to work in the winter and return to farming in the summer.[2] It was also, in a very real sense, intended to maintain the bucolic settings and lifestyles that Ford remembered from his boyhood and idealized to some extent.[2]

Ford wanted to create places where Technology, Manufacturing, and Agriculture could "Co-Exist". He established his village industries in rural areas where farmland was easily available.[3] However, Ford intended the village industries to be an integral part of his manufacturing system, providing cost-effective and reliable parts. To minimize the increased costs of transportation incurred by these decentralized manufacturing plants, Ford chose sites that were primarily near larger existing Ford plants (the Ford River Rouge Complex and the Highland Park Ford Plant). The products the village industries made were all small and light, able to be efficiently shipped.[3]

Ford also believed in using clean and readily-available sources of power.[1] Water power, he thought, was nearly inexhaustible and easy to come by in Michigan.[2] He had in fact begun experimenting with water power when building his house at Fair Lane.[4] Thus, the village industry plants all made use of hydroelectric power; indeed, many were located at the site of old mills.[3] Some of the village industry plants actually utilize refurbished grist mill buildings, others merely used the site, with Ford erecting new industrial buildings to house the plant.   However, the village industry program did not live much longer than Henry Ford himself. The small manufacturing plants were not a financial success,[10] and the stricter accountability procedures implemented after Henry Ford relinquished the presidency in 1945 found that they did not return optimal cost/benefit ratios.[3] Ford Motor Company soon began closing the Village Industries; most of the plants were closed in the 1940s.[11] Only five were still operating in the mid-1950s, three in the mid-1960s, and only a single one, the Ford Valve Plant in Northville, in the mid-1970s.[10] The Northville plant, ironically both the first and last of Ford's village industries, continued in operation until 1981.[9] The birth of PotMan.
