Radiation And It’s Effects on Plants: Magnetic Reversals – Grand Solar Minimums – Cosmic Rays

Before I explain how radiation can affect plant-life, I must first explain what exactly radiation is, and how it is able to affect matter. Radiation comes from many places, from the Sun, to things man makes like cell phones and TV’s. Radiation is not always dangerous. Radiation can become very dangerous depending on what kind of radiation it is, and how long something is exposed to it. Radiation has two types, non-ionizing, which is mostly harmless, and ionizing. This high-energy, ionizing radiation can lead to serious problems within an organism. Radiation energy is transferred by particles or waves . While non-ionizing radiation is relatively low-energy, ionizing radiation is so high in energy it can break chemical bonds. This means it can change the charge of an atom that interacts with it. At high levels, this can even damage and destroy the nucleus of an atom, directly affecting an organism’s DNA. Once DNA is tampered with, an organism can develop dangerous mutations. http://large.stanford.edu/courses/201… Tomatoes And Gamma Rays https://images.fineartamerica.com/ima… Peas Exposed To WiFi https://www.magdahavas.com/wp-content… Could Astronaut Crops Survive Space Radiation? https://www.space.com/11142-chernobyl… Effects of sparsely and densely ionizing radiation on plants https://www.researchgate.net/publicat… Cosmic ionizing radiation effects in plant seeds after short and long duration exposure flights https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1… The Good Stuff Is Below!

Supplementing CO2 for Plant Growth

Supplementing CO2 is important for indoor growers. CO2 can be the most limiting factor when it comes to plant growth. It is good to know how to measure and understand if you have a CO2 problem. It is also an inexpensive method of increasing your crop production.

This video debunks the myth of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) of bring a pollutant. Reason why Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant and it is a gas of life for plants. As the video say at from 1:30 to 2:07; If Carbon Dioxide (CO2) levels is below like 250 parts per million the plant stopped growing or grow at a very slow rate. If Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations fall below at 150 ppm or below the threshold; plants die off. The lowest level ever for Earth Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations was 180 ppm which is 30 ppm above the plants die off level (150 ppm) and plants will be working so hard to survive and Stoma on the plant on the plant leaf will be open so wide and big it can get. But when Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations is high to plant’s Stoma shrink because the plants is getting plenty of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) which makes plant growth more efficiently and don’t lose as much water uptake nutrients more efficiently also more tolerant to heat and drought. So we should be praising about Earth Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations surpassing the 400 parts per million threshold. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution the Earth Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Concentrations have increase from 280 ppm to 400 ppm and the plant will be loving the extra amount of Carbon Dioxide today.
If you planing to raise plants indoor and want to know how to build a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) generator. For me I haven’t built one yet and you plans and designs how to build one. Let me know in the comments below.

Cannabis-Based Batteries Could Change the Way We Store Energy Forever

Earth We Are One
September 1, 2014

As hemp makes a comeback in the U.S. after a decades-long ban on its cultivation, scientists are reporting that fibers from the plant can pack as much energy and power as graphene, long-touted as the model material for supercapacitors. They’re presenting their research, which a Canadian start-up company is working on scaling up, at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society.

Vertical Farms Sprouting Up All Over The World Could Bring Food Local

Collective Evolution

by Joe Martino

Imagine walking into a high rise building only to find out it was actually a vertical farm. As odd as this sounds, this type of building is popping up in different areas of the world as the idea promises new, environmentally friendly and rapid ways to feed growing populations.

The first commercial vertical farm was built in Singapore by Jack Ng who is an entrepreneur looking to supply food to Singapore’s densely populated city without having to buy a lot of highly priced land around the city. His vertical farm method is energy efficient, simple and mixes some ancient practices with new ones. The tower is modern and clear, so it looks great and allows sunlight into the the building for the plants. The produce grown in the building is sold under the name SkyGreens. You can find out more about how this vertical farm works in the video below.

Is Cannabigerol (CBG) The Ultimate Cannabinoid?

Truth on Pot

TruthOnPot.com – Cannabigerol happens to be responsible for most of marijuana’s medical effects, but many aren’t aware that this chemical even exists. That’s because CBG works behind the scenes, which scientists have only recently started to investigate.

cbg-ultimate-cannabinoid-2-08-10As it turns out, THC and CBD – the two most common chemicals in marijuana – and other minor cannabinoids all begin as CBG. CBG is non-psychoactive and can be thought of as the “stem cell” of these chemicals. CBG is quickly converted to other cannabinoids by enzymes in the cannabis plant, which explains the low concentration of CBG in most strains.
