Dear Dr. Biro and Ms. Pescador,

I am writing to invite your consideration of the potential for a biogenic, agricultural strategy for climate change mitigation. Radiative forcing, using low-THC, industrial strains of Cannabis hemp, could produce a steady concentration of atmospheric "monoterpenes" while sequestering a ton of carbon per acre per growing season.

I would be interested to know your thoughts on this theory and invite the UN and Club of Madrid to initiate agricultural research projects to determine the radiative forcing, agricultural conversion potential, concurrent with determination of the organic protein and fuel production profile of Cannabis agriculture.
