Scoring & Annotations

Its been said that using a sunflower would be a smart new biofuel. I agree not personally of course but for this paper i have too. So we have apperently started planting a bunch of sunflower seeds and volunteers tend to them when they can. This is just one step in making biofuel out of sunflowers and saving the planet!

Ill begin now by saying how it would be pretty cool if this could happen. Farmers around the midwest would kill for a renewable fuel source to save some green and make a bigger check at the end of harvest season. but at the same time doing this would effect the job market. See this what i don’t understand we have all these people working to fix a problem but what happens when they fix it and the people that worked on that problem lose there jobs? If we created a biofuel to power diesel tractors farmers would most likely teach themselves to fix the machines.

Apperently they’d make diesel techs become biotechs. I guess the jobs lost from destroying one job would be fix by the amount of people it would take to keep the bio fuel world turning
