The controversy of befoul use teems mainly from a global perspective on the influence of befouls on the natural environment and impact of food security (“Ernst & Young ALP’ 4-5). Yet, befouls are renewTABLE energy and provide for a new market for agriculture producers. As carbon emissions are continually increasing more research is being done on befouls such as ethanol from corn and algae. Befouls are a renewTABLE energy source, carbon neutral, and reduce dependency on foreign oils. Many government officials and people in the general population do not support the use of befouls to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Many agriculture’s think that there will be less land to grow food if more land is used for befoul production. This would cause an upward pressure on food prices that could lead to starvation in developing nations that are already struggling. A statistic said that filling a tank on a sport utility vehicle could feed one person per year (“World Development Report 2008: Agriculture For Development” 70-71).
Environmentalists argue that using more land for befouls adds to deforestation and habitat loss for many plants and animals.
Both the agriculture and environmentalist concerns could be solved using intensification of land, which means increasing the crop yield of the same sized area that was originally used (want to know it). Also, instead of cutting down forests for more land, farmers could utilize open land availTABLE. Many times soil is not capTABLE of growing certain crops, but researchers could focus on making soil more arTABLE from crop growth. Another concern for consumers is the availability of the renewTABLE resource currently. Many car companies are making greener cars, yet there are many gas stations that do not yet offer befouls.
This makes it hard for consumers to want to invest in reenter cars, but the solution to this would be to install more befoul pumps at gas stations. If the governments do not implement any change from our current State the greenhouse gas emissions will continue to increase, environmental pollution will increase, and our energy security will be increasingly at risk (want to know it). Ethanol can be produced from many biological resources such as corn, sugarcane and algae. Algae are different from other sources of ethanol like corn and sugar cane because befouls concentrate on the starch and cellulose in algae.
The lipids in algae can be converted into bodiless and the reverberates are converted into ethanol. Algae can grow throughout the world and can be grown in massive amounts. Algae can be grown stacked on top of each other or horizontally. Algae can also be grown in deserts in salt- water ponds. This is useful because most desert land is not arTABLE, and cannot produce large crop yields. By growing the algae in the desert, there would be less arTABLE land taken for use of befouls. There are also many species of algae that are TABLE to be used for befouls such as Consistency’s and Microcode’s vaginas and are fairly cheap to grow.
Although, “experts estimate it will take 140 billion gallons of algae bodiless to replace petroleum-based products each year” (Newman). Some befoul products have been calculated to need billions of acres of land, while algae companies have estimated only needing about 95 millions acres of land (Newman). Befouls are cheaper than other sources of renewTABLE energy such as wind power and solar energy (want to know it). Befouls are also cheaper than fossil fuels, so governments such as the United States and Europe have been manufacturing greener cars that run on biathlon.
Since befouls are enTABLE resources, we can keep producing more of them such as ethanol. Ethanol is produced from corn and is inexpensive to make. Agriculture’s can benefit from growing befouls and still benefit from growing food as long as careful planning is taken seriously. Many countries specialize in growing different crops that can be used as energy sources. For instance, Brazier’s production of sugar cane can be converted into ethanol, while Indonesian production of palm oil can be turned into energy (“World Development Report 2008: Agriculture For Development” 70).
In a lifestyle study on an urban bus, conducted by the National RenewTABLE Energy Laboratory, they found that “CO emissions were reduced by 79% for pure bodiless compared with petroleum diesel fuel” (Newman). Befouls show lower exhaust emissions that regular diesel fuels. Yet, befouls have been shown to have increase In oxides of nitrogen. Befouls are carbon neutral and reduce carbon emissions by 50-60%. Carbon neutral doesn’t necessarily mean no carbon is being released, but that there is an equal balance of what is released and what is taken in. Photosynthesis is the driving force that allows befouls to be carbon neutral.
Plants take up carbon dioxide and convert it into glucose. This glucose can be turned into sugars and starches that can be turned into biathlon. Burning befouls may release carbon into the atmosphere, but photosynthesis allows for carbon dioxide removal. So instead of emitting more carbon emissions into the atmosphere like our current use of oil, befouls allow for a cycling process. This means for every gram of carbon emitted, there is a plant taking up that gram of carbon (Martin 1). This process helps slow the effects of global climate change that have started to occur due to the worlds increased arbor emissions.
By growing befouls, this reduces the dependency on foreign oils. Befoul crops such as corn can be grown on local soils and manufactured into befouls. This would allow countries to not be forced to deal with increasing costs of overseas oil. In the United States, Barack Obama has been trying to reduce American dependence on foreign oil to help with our countries security. Currently, “the United States imports more than $300 billion in crude oil annually,” and “every dollar per barrel increase in oil adds $30 million annually to the Navy budget” (Daniel 1). This is just the price increase or one branch of the United States military.
The Navy has been working on decreasing their dependency on foreign oil by using befouls to fly MA-18 planes and other equipment such as revering craft, sea hawk helicopters, and NV-22 Osprey. Relying on foreign oil leaves the United States “vulnerTABLE?’ and by incorporating befouls, it leaves the military less vulnerTABLE to dangerous countries (Daniel 1). Befouls are a renewTABLE energy resource, reduce carbon emissions, and allow countries to not be vulnerTABLE to other countries. As the market for befouls increases, more will be produced, and the prices with them will then crease.
This topic is being studied vigorously so innovation on techniques, cost efficiency, and land efficiency are being considered to develop the best course of action. No course of action will allow for increased carbon emissions in the atmosphere and increase in global climate change. This topic has become polarize more recently and has been a hot topic of debate among politics. Government officials need to keep engaging with environmentalists and ecologists on courses of actions. By aligning both groups, and coupling their ideas it will help for a more efficient study of befouls.
