Biofuels are bad for the environment is not worse than petrol and dieselA group of scientists from Stanford University, USA, conducted a study of the impact of biofuels on the environment. The results of the study conclusively prove that the application instead of the traditional automotive alternative fuel types is likely to have a detrimental impact on the ecological environment and human health.In the study, researchers designed two three-dimensional computer model of the atmosphere of Los Angeles in the year 2020. One of them illustrated the state of the environment, provided that cars continue to drive gas, the second - predpolagaet that cars passed into a mixture of E85, which contains 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. The model took into account many factors affecting the concentration, distribution and movement of exhaust gases, such as temperature, cloudiness, wind, precipitation, the content of other impurities in the atmosphere.In the computer model using E85 predicts increased mortality at 200 deaths per year. Now according to experts, the exhaust gases in Los Angeles lead to 10 thousands of premature deaths per year.The authors as an alternative to petrol fuel use transport based on solar or wind energy.autonet.ru23.04.2007. .
