Sure electrification makes a lot of sense considering the fact that the majority of our possessions in 2022 feature some sort of battery and it seems more and more devices are starting to feature renewable energy sources. Whether that’s through solar power collection, movement collection or even using radio frequencies to create a charge. There is a lot of cool stuff going on in the world of green technology, and that goes for sustainable fuels as well. So let me make an unscientific argument as to why we clearly need to look towards biofuels as a piece of the climate change puzzle!

Energy Sovereignty

Looking at the world right now, it’s clear that the world is overly reliant on crude oil. If each country was actually intelligent they would certainly shift a major part of their technological focus towards creating energy independence. Instead as it stands now, we just buy oil from our neighbors and instead hope that that supply chain never gets interrupted. Either by war or global pandemics.
