We have a responsibility to provide for at least 7 generations ahead. Phytoremediation is a tool we can use to achieve that goal.

Plants can act as hydraulic pumps when their roots reach down toward the water table and establish a dense root mass that takes up large quantities of water. Poplar trees, for example, can transpire between 50 and 300 gallons of water per day out of the ground. The water consumption by the plants decreases the tendency of surface contaminants to move towards groundwater and into drinking water. The use of plants to rapidly uptake large volumes of water to contain or control the migration of subsurface water is known as hydraulic control. There are several applications that use plants for this purpose, such as riparian corridors/buffer strips and vegetative caps."
Specifically the surface of the existing soil to a depth of 8 feet. This is also the area and depth of the soil contaminates that are causing all the health issues associated with nuclear waste that are plaguing the residents of the Bridgeton and Cold Water Creek region."

This information is only a selection of the material that needs to be studied of the many ways hemp can help us reverse pollution and it's effect of climate change and other environmental impacts.
Check out this blog for more information on how and why we must implement the hemp solution. Thank you for reading and sharing this material.
