27 arguments for the Peas on Earth concept

PeasOnEarth is the idea of extracting green manure, ethanol, fiber and protein from legumes. It may have many positive effects. Without exaggerating, it can actually help to save the world. Your everyday choices are important!

GREEN MANURE

1) First, the farmer grows peas for natural organic green manure. The species is an annual plant that bind nitrogen from the air in their root systems, and when the root system is broken down, the next crop, raise industry.

2) The farmer saves money by avoiding buying expensive chemical fertilizers, and need not pay the fuel to spread it, either.

3) It takes minerals, electricity and plastics for the manufacture and packaging of chemical fertilizers, and oil to carry it. Artan do the work on site with free solar energy.

4) Organic green manure reduces the eutrophication of streams, lakes and oceans, because the nitrogen in roots Artan not leach out of the rain that makes art manure. Industry in the soil and absorbed by the farm’s crops next year, rather than cause problems for algae blooms in the sea 100 mil away.

AUTOMOTIVE

5) pulses, sugar and starch processing at the home of the peasant in a mobile factory for automotive fuel, namely ethanol can be blended into E85 or used as is (E100). The ethanol can sell the farmer and get income from, or to use yourself in order to reduce the cost of fuel.

6) If the farmer sells the ethanol to avoid motorists in the neighborhood to buy fossil fuel shipped over half the globe. Shorter transport is good because it reduces the waste of resources. Much of the oil that is used to carry oil and extracting gasoline or diesel is of course “wasted”.

7) Fewer oil shipments to the oceans is good for wildlife. Today will be birds, mammals and fish contaminated with large ships drives their tanks at sea, or worse, is due and placing all the oil in the water.

8) Locally produced ethanol can also be cheaper to buy for the motorist than gasoline is. It is partly due to imports, hazardous fuels are taxed higher than locally produced, organic fuels.

9) When the pea is growing it absorb carbon dioxide from the air. This means that carbon emissions from cars that run on ethanol is part of the natural cycle. Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air is our chance to straighten up the environment and the entire planet’s ecosystem.

10) The demand for locally produced ethanol can increase the value of rural properties. Today, sold a house in the countryside for less money than it costs to build. While sold houses in the towns of sums that people with normal incomes can only dream about. Higher valued properties will make it worthwhile to maintain the houses, and then, and dares people to live. The development today is similar to “last remaining seated with Black Pete”. Allowed the houses due to its uneconomical to repair them, so moving even the last farmer to town and takes an office job that gives advice to buy a town hall. The city is dependent on the country for food security – but if nobody can afford to live in the country, who will produce the food?

11) Sweden do not have to import so much oil. It improves the trade balance and thus its economy.

12) If Sweden reduces its dependence on oil, so also reduces the country’s vulnerability to international conflicts. Those who were in the 1940s and 1970s known as rationing, the impact on a society.

13) Local fuel supply reduces bloody conflicts. Saddam invaded Kuwait in order to get over their oil wells. Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, water and biofuels have access to all nations.

FIBERS
14) The pea fiber pellets that can be fired and provides heat and electricity with the farmer. It reduces the need for environmentally hazardous coal-fired and nuclear power.15) Alternatively, the fibers may be used for fabric, paper, rope, or in food production. Did you know that the nice blouse viscose fabric is made of wood fibers? Really nice paper can be made of rags, that is, second-hand cloth. Viscose fibers, or cellulose-xantogenat that the real name, also used in sausage casings. There will ärtfibrer mixed in the bread to make bread is healthier. Sales of ärtfibrer can provide income to the farmer.

16) Fibers can provide materials to local industry. It provides jobs and income for rural residents.
PROTEIN
17) Even ärtproteinet extracted in the mobile factory with the farmer. Ärtproteinet is readily soluble and, therefore, good food for all animals that have only one stomach, but a little too fast food for the cows have four stomachs. The protein may reduce the farm’s feed costs, or provide income when sold.
18) Ärtprotein consists of many different amino acids. For humans, it is important to get in the full protein, ie protein contains 8-10 essential amino acids that the body needs but does not itself produce. Ärtprotein is full of protein. In concentrated form, it is almost pure sugar and fat. Therefore ärtprotein popular as slimming products, food supplements for muscle builders and to help the sick to heal quickly and recover. It is also used as additives in meat products as sausages, burgers and liver paste. Some people, however, is allergic to ärtprotein. Ärtprotein can solve some of felnäringsproblemen in the world.

19) Local ennobling of protein can provide jobs in the district.

20) Environmentalists like pea-protein. Under normal circumstances it takes considerably less fresh water and other resources to produce one kilograms ärtprotein than a kilo of meat protein. Beef cattle in economies emit lots of methane gas is 20-25 times more aggressive greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.

21) Vegetarian food is cheaper for consumers. The only exception is when aid to agriculture, transport and market business cycles distorts competition.

22) As of this writing (February 2008) Europe’s farmers slaughtering their pigs because the market’s unilateral demand for wheat, driven up prices so that farmers can not afford to give the animals food. Meat surplus resulting mean that farmers do not even get paid for their costs and therefore in danger of going bankrupt. When the meat is over the hill, there are fewer farmers and pigs and meat shortages then occur, which means that the pork becomes expensive for consumers again. The alternativmat would be good for the hungry pig who can not get wheat.

23) Vegetarians, animal rights activists and health advisers like peaprotein. If Westerners ate less meat and more vegetarian proteins, many welfare diseases disappear, and the incentives of painful animal husbandry practices and long-slaughter transport reduce ..

24) The proteins used in Sweden today for vegetarians and for the production of animal protein will almost unamended from Brazil as soybean meal. Whether it’s milk, eggs or meat. Soybean production alone accounts for 12% of the greenhouse effect through the burn-beating in the Amazon.

And there’s more

25) By substituting soy protein with locally grown peas and beans also replaced 65% of the need of chemical fertilizer through the peas ability to fixate nitrogen. The structural improvement of the soil is called forefruit value and gives a increased yield of up to 15% on the next crop.

26) By the methods of cultivation Ecoetanol has developed also binds large quantities of carbon to the soil thereby reducing the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Every kilometer run on pea-etanol as peas on earth concept binds 800 grams of carbon dioxide.

27) Income from the production ports of many people especially in rural areas, creating better living conditions over there, and less exodus needs.
