New Hemp Cities(c) Update Spring 2018

Let's solve the world's housing problem for both those without homes and those who need housing upgrades quickly, affordably and constructed to meet end users lifestyle needs. 

How? Consider these questions concerning the solution New Hemp Cities offers our housing crisis.

1.  In this age of climate change, does building off the grid environmentally sound structures that are waterproofradiation reducing using NASA space travel research, in house vertical farming, self assembling and dome shaped buildings to reduce wind damage make sense?

2. Does using the 3d printing art and science called contour crafting that can build a 2,000 sq. ft. structure in less than 24 hours at 60% below traditional construction costs or 3d printing self assembling buildings make sense?

3. Given the environmental, economic and nuclear situations we are dealing with, does New Hemp Cities brand of environmentally conscious new housing plus retrofitting existing structures make sense?

New Hemp Cities is a brand in development and a proposed series of locations in high altitude areas on aquifers. It is the result of a dream to 3d print environmentally conscious buildings to enhance and save lives. They are being designed to help us survive global warming, climate change, wind storms, flooding and elevated radiation levels, like the result of dumping 300-400 tons of highly radioactive water into the ocean daily from Fukushima plus other nuclear plants and waste. 

The ocean levels are rising and we will be moving large populations inland from coastal cities like New York and Los Angeles. To understand just one of the sources, start by watching ice melt in a microwave. It's the ice above the water level that will be the source of the rising ocean. 

In the face of radical climate change, it makes sense to strengthen our structures and build stronger buildings in the future.

What is meant by environmentally conscious is that we factor in surviving climate change and natural disasters into our designs, like what would happen if there was a heat or radiation wave where all the ice melted as discussed above. 

These structures are being developed so that they are fire retardant with the use of hempcrete, waterproof as a result of strong hemp plastic, radiation shielded based on NASA's magnetic shielding for space travel, rounded to make them windproof, dome shaped to make them earthquake resistant, completely off the grid where possible (i.e. water source) and self assembling.

New Age Printing

The art and science of technology is growing so fast that by the time 3d printing takes hold (produces in height, width and depth), 4d printing (self assembling) and 5d printing (base that item is printed on moves, making stronger items) are already here. Rather than get caught up on the style, my focus is new age printing which even covers the jump to laser printing. I write the phrase 3d printing as a shorthand for all the great advances here now and ahead.

3d printing works like a traditional computer and printer. Rather than print in two dimensions height and width, it prints in three adding depth. 

In building construction (contour crafting) the printers, suspended from gantries, take instructions and do what they are told, i.e. put concrete here, plastic there, repeat laying concrete until it reaches 12' ceilings, etc. So we can use 3d printing's contour crafting technique can build a 2,000 foot structure in less than 24 hours off of a computer file.



3d printing roads

So, since we can 3d print a house, in whatever configuration we want, of course using Google Earth and other programs/apps combined with 3d printing, we can 3d print additional layers of roads either above, below or next to existing highways to relieve traffic by at least 50% of current flow. It could be set with a fast lane for folks going around downtown and standard roads for locally exiting traffic. There is plenty of room to trail blaze using a multi-story highway system. Because the field of 3d printing our infrastructure is so new common sense counts. We can answer the question based on how inexpensive 3d printing roads can be when done on a large scale, 'What good is having a car that can do 200 MPH when there are no roads that one can drive on that fast?" Possibly folks will pay a toll to drive on the 200 MPH road.

Vertical Farming

An ancillary market is vertical farming which is a great use for existing buildings plus 3d printed ones as well as a way to supply the additional food and raw resource materials necessary for rapid growth. Plenty of jobs and more folks willing to work on indoor computerized farming than out in the fields...better quality food too.

Since the 1980's I've taught that computers and other technology are keys out of the biblical Babylon. We can speak the same language, no longer confounded, build ideas from a larger pool of thought. They are tools to help us save ourselves. Let's use them wisely.

Here's a link to the big New Hemp Cities report that is currently being transformed from an assemblage of 680 pages of research to an accurate business plan. A blog post from 2016 both explains the project is posted here.

Hemp Backpacks, Fabrics, Shoes, Hats & Wallets from Nepal

GREAT FASHION FIND! The work of these hemp artist from Nepal is almost ready to sell on line, so I'm giving you a heads up while the video is still in rough cut format. If as you "hemp yourself" by shifting over to a natural, hemp based wardrobe, lifestyle, these unique accessories will lift the fashion part of your soul.

I am J. Nayer Hardin, 
the founder of and a conductor on the Computer Underground Railroad. My mission since 1984 is to use computers and other technology to help people be free. I am encouraging and helping organize on line this crew so they can sell their work on ine. We're working through issues with PayPal on setting up the account which has restrictions on it in Nepal and other places. I can't believe that some people are still being discriminated in the field of on line banking & shopping. The digital divide is still miles wide. 

It was divine intervention that I was introduced to this group of artists. While working on the
2016 Kyoto Hemp Forum and last year's on line Hemp Environmental Forum, I met a dedicated man in the field of hemp textiles, Mohan Singh Singh through Facebook working groups. Mohan works with members of his village to make hemp textile accessories, backpacks, fabrics, hats, shoes and wallets. As an old school fashion diva from the last century, I immediately fell in love. The items are beautiful, high quality and unique. To support building a bridge, contact the craftspeople now. 

Below are picture samples of the hemp backpacks hand made demonstrated in the YouTube Video at the top of this post. Hemp is one of the longest and strongest fibers in nature, biblical in reference (linen) as a friend to humanity. These strong backpack hemp accessories keep you ready to go on a moment's notice with what you need for your next journey.

Hemp Environmental Forum - On Line - Working Draft

Working Draft Of
An International On-Line Forum

What: Hemp Environmental Forum is calling together an international gathering of hemp / cannabis activists, business people, visionaries, consumers, and students to help ring in a healthier and more prosperous 2018.

When: Starting at midnight GMT December 27-30, 2017 with the possibility of continuing the conversation through the 2018 forum in Quebec.

Where: On line, both live and recorded presentations with text room for conversations on platforms including Facebook LIVE with subsequent broadcasts on Twitter, Youtube and Google. Other media that can participate in the event are welcome to carry the broadcast.

Why: To use the energy of an international hemp / cannabis community to implement the hemp solution to modern problems. Climate change, pollution, world hunger, environmentally induced sickness, homelessness, lack… so many crisis situations we are dealing with. By simply implementing the hemp solution by ending the drug war and empowering hemp / cannabis ventures, we can take a step back from the politically stupid policies we follow daily.

How: Present information and opportunities for discussion and implementing positively dynamic action plans. The general structure over the 4 days is a day each on these topics:

Farming, Medical, Environment and Economy

Event Structure: Each day is divided into six 4-hour sections. Each topic driven session is broken into approximately 3-4 sub-topics.  Overviews and a 1- hour summary, conclusion at the end of the day plus segments which do not have to be limited to structure as some may run under and others over time. 

Live Programming hours will feature educational information plus material on the movers and shakers in the respective areas with hero breaks at :15 :35 and :55, five minutes each break time.  It would be easier on workers bodies and souls if sponsorships could be found.

Library will have as many free .pdfs and videos plus cannabis / hemp books for sale.

A production of the Hemp Environmental Forum

Comments or questions please contact us through our Facebook page, the foundation of the presentation platform. This is only a draft for sharing ideas and adding videos, personalities and inspiration.

Hemp is a powerful, fast growing plant that has tens of thousands of applications, and that number does not factor in 3D printing.  With a growing span of 90-120 days, we can begin the process to Phytoremediate Earth.

Large scale hemp / cannabis farming offers opportunities to end world hunger, homelessness. When the problem is not enough food, the solution is to grow more food. Hemp foods solve that problem. When the problem is homelessness, the solution is to grow more raw resource material to make homes out of. Solving our agricultural problems using basic science can co-create abundant, healthy harvests. It is important to support hemp /cannabis farming.

“Hemp improves the physical condition of the soil, and when retted on the same ground where it grows, it returns most of the fertilizing elements” Hemp, Lifeline To The Future by Chris Conrad pg. 167 

Hemp breathes in the excess global warming CO2 gas from the air as it grows” said Richard M. Davis, USA Hemp Museum

Focusing on agriculture is the best way to begin the process of using hemp to help us deal with climate change. As we rebuild our agricultural structure from the foundation, roots up we must scientifically factor in farming basics. Water, soil condition, seeds, temperatures and lights.

Since hemp can grow in any agronomic farming system and requires no toxic chemicals to grow it is what Willie Nelson calls “A Peaceful Solution”.

Please post your thoughts, videos and photos in the comments sections. As we build and implement the Action Plan for implementing the hemp solution and other smart actions, we're sharing ideas. Thanks.
