Clive Aslet concludes an interesting article in the Sunday Times Magazine with the words, ' Someone who can devise a crop yielding not only protein (to eat) but ethanol ( to drive the car) and fibre (to make your clothes) while requiring less nitrogen, phosphate and water to grow, will make a fortune. Oh, and save the world too' (Aslet, 2008)
What Aslet failed to consider is that such a crop already exists; Hemp!!
Stupid me!! I'm now realising Aslet was finishing the article with a rhetorical question!
