The author comments on the problem of overpopulation in line with the issue of using biomass for transportation fuel. The author argues that higher living standards, better quality of life and sustainable development can only come from limiting population growth. The author believes that countries with high population density such as India cannot possibly produce enough biomass for both food and fuel. The author claims that a solution could be the use of electric cars powered by electricity from sources that do not emit carbon dioxide.

    Road transport carbon dioxide emissions were analyzed, by focusing on a panel of 14 European countries for the time span 1995-2007. We deal with the existence of contemporaneous correlation by using the Panel Corrected Standard Errors estimator. We extend the empirical literature by controlling...

    The production of organic matter and calcium carbonate by a dense population of the brittle star Acrocnida brachiata (Echinodermata) was calculated using demographic structure, population density, and relations between the size (disk diameter) and the ash-free dry weight (AFDW) or the calcimass....

    Approximately 8% of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions are estimated to come from land-use change, but this estimate excludes fluxes of terrestrial carbon to aquatic ecosystems from human disturbance. Carbon fluxes from land to rivers have probably increased by 0.1 to 0.2 petagrams of carbon...
