|We have seen a flurry of activity following the failed attempt by BP to stem the spillage of oil from the Deepwater Horizon well in the Gulf of Mexico.|
When President Obama announced a departure from cozy relationships with the oil industry, a reshuffling of the Mineral Management Service and a freeze on offshore oil drilling, oil companies around the world were quick to seize new opportunities.
They joined the fray and are now moving into biofuels and bringing with them the immoral staggering amounts of profits made from petroleum to snap up fledgling biofuel companies left and right.
Valero Energy of San Antonio, Texas, PetroChina (making bioethanol from sweet sorghum, a staple food item in developing countries) and Surinaamse Staatsolie (state owned national petroleum company of Suriname in South America) are just three fairly recent entries in the playing field which promises to become soon the exclusive play ground of very cash laden oil and gas companies.
The case of Staatsolie in Surinam is just another example of how the principal agricultural export product rice of said country will be replaced by sugarcane which will be grown instead to be used for the production of bio-ethanol which is a more profitable venture.
So after destroying productive marine resources the move is now to destroy the arable land resources as well, endangering the very biodiversity of planet earth as the competition for biomass for becomes a heated battle between biofuel companies and the 1.4 billion people on the brink of starvation according to a recent study by the FAO worldwide.
The biofuels industry, the heir apparent of the oil and gas industry stands to become the next industry to rule the world unless the push to renewable energy technologies not based on biomass, fuels and biochar is funded and promoted by the US and European Union.
