Resumen

YOUNG, Carlos Eduardo  F  y  STEFFEN, Priscila G. Biocombustibles as strategy of development: A course towards sustainability or to a new periphery?. Polis [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.21, pp.167-177. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682008000200009.

The authors investígate the real contribution of biocombustibles to the solution of the environmental problems. After analyzing the current forms of production in Brazil, they maintain that the expansión of these will pressure indirectly towards deforestation, contributing thus still more to global warming-up. They indícate how deceptive is the speech that justifies the expansión of biocombustibles because of its contribution to the generation of employment. They maintain that it is fundamental to incorpórate the requirements of sustainability in the production line in order to guarantee competitiveness for the potentially exporting countries, but that even then, that solution has a limit since all the alternative and renewable energies together would not supply the projected pattern of world consumption.

Palabras clave : Biocombustibles; export of commodities; deforestation.
