Bio-fuels

In a bid to curb the reliance and use of the dwindling fossil fuels, more and more countries are exploring the use of alternative fuels like bio-fuels.

Bio-fuels such as corns are increasingly being harnessed for fuels. Such alternative use of food like corns are welcome measures in this world where we witness the dwindling natural resources amidst the mounting environmental degradation issues that homo-sapien has inevitably created as a result of modernization. However the use of food like corn as fuels has brought a host of problems of a different dimension.

With more food like corn being harvested for fuels, a smaller proportion of this food is cultivated as food for man and this set the march of the prices of this food north. Alongside with the price hike is the corresponding shortage of these food items for man.
