Introduction to the Problem 

The Philippines have a large amount of population so the demand for transportation uprises each year, to which it contributes to our greenhouse gases. Our planet is in danger because of the greenhouse gases that every country produces. The fuel for cars that is mostly used is gasoline. Gasoline is a toxic and highly flammable, and burning gasoline produces carbon dioxide.

Other countries such as the USA, Canada, and most European countries have already started acting towards this problem. By producing and creating a battery-powered vehicle.

A cheaper option for the country is to create and use eco-friendly gas which is cheaper.

Statistics

Statistics of the Consumption of Petroleum in the Philippines.

Consequences

The consequences if the petition is not pushed through it may:

  • The car combust carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide which may contribute to climate change.
  • Gasoline can contaminate the water and the soil, which can affect the health of people. It may even cause cancer, headaches, and asthma.

Philosophical view 

The social ecology is connected to the topic as people are interdependent to the environment. The human is using the environment to their advantage, which is the collection of environmental waste to create biofuel. The same goes for the environment, for the plants to grow it needs manpower to be able to fertilize it.

Merits

If this petition is then granted:

  • It is environmentally friendly. Traditional gases emit greenhouse gasses, polluting the environment and worsening the climate change problems. Biofuels produce fewer toxins and less carbon input.
  • It can be produced locally. Not a lot of countries have crude oil, and some even import their oil supply. Biofuels can be produced locally which can decrease the country's dependence on foreign sources.
  • Stimulate the local economy. Since biofuel can be locally produced, this fuel can open more biofuel manufacturing plants. It can also stimulate the agriculture industry.

Solutions

First, the government must agree to the petition and work with the owners of the gas station for it to be achieved.

As a citizen, you can help by using a battery-powered car. Or a cheaper you can help by converting your car to using biofuel rather than gasoline to lessen the greenhouse gasses.

Closing 

The use of biofuel will help in preserving and saving the earth, due to the reduction of greenhouse gases that are being produced daily. Using waste and residue as raw materials for biofuels an example to also answer another issue on a problem which is waste pollution.
