The reading passage discusses an interesting topic about the use of ethanol made from plants as a worse alternative of fuel than the gasoline, and provides three reasons for support. However, the lecturer casts doubts on the claim made by the article and opposes to each of the reasons of the reading passage.
First, the reading passage establishes that ethanol produced from corn or sugar cane is as worse as gasoline to the global warming. The lecturer rebuttes this argument by explaining that the carbon dioxide eliminated by the ethanol combustion would be absorbed by the plants that produce it. Therefore, it would be a compensation with no extra carbon dioxide realised to atmosphere.
Second, the lecturer suggests that the corn necessary to produce enough fuel should not compromise the use of corn for food. Moreover, the ethanol is created from the cellulose of the plant. Thus, any plant other than corn can be material good enough for the production of ethanol and the food provision would not be compromised.
Finally, the reading passage points out that the production of ethanol has similar price as gasoline thanks to a government subsidy. In other words, without the subsidy the ethanol would be very expensive. Challenging this point, the lecturer argues that in the future the price of ethanol should be competitive if its demand increase. In consequence, the production of the fuel would increase as well and the price would be reduced.
