Usage of biofuel as alternate energy addressed to lessen usage of fossil fuel. But the general side effects which most hard is the lessen of potency produce of food material and the increasing of global warming progress. The formula of profit or loss for biofuel can be like this:
Biofuel = Energy + Global warming – Fossil fuel – food material.
Biofuel of course more ” promises” to lessen dependency at fossil fuel, even before all has been announced by United Nation that besides as an alternative energy, biofuel also friendlier for environment. Then why in its development biofuel is assessed negativity by many sides? This thing is no other because to produce feedstock biofuel is required a lot of land and even not rarely openings of land is done by doing forest baking. On the other hand, Indonesia plans will build 142 Biofuel Industries in the year 2009. This thing it is of course would increasingly strengthens Brazil and Indonesia as world biofuel producer. If the tropical forest is world lung, then will be like if Brazil and Indonesia as owner of the biggest tropical forest in world do not make control to land opening? World will coughs..
Besides “breath” problem, biofuel also delivers “stomach” problem. Opening of land and produce of more feedstock for biofuel which more economic valuable so that to produce food would “a few” pursued. On the other side, number of earthlings increasingly so that will emerge lameness between resident amounts with the food, which in the end will cause appearance many hungers is various by world cleavage.
So how optimal this biofuel for world? It is simple. Which important is energy, “eats” or “breath”?
