Tomas Shearin(March,2012)
1.) Endocarp was preferable to crop-based biofuels as it had no value as a food item. "Its exploitation as energy source does not compete with food production,"said Tomas Shearin. 2.) ‘’Most coconut endocarp comes from South and South-East Asian countries, including Bangladesh, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam’’.This proves that endocarp can be found in our country. Eva Aguilar(2012)

3.) ‘’Climate change may lead to the collapse of coral reef ecosystems in the Pacific, of the kind last seen 4,000 years ago.’’ Researchers found that coral reefs along the Pacific coast of Panama stopped growing for 2,500 years, or 40 per cent of their history, during a period of time that coincides with an increase in the strength and frequency of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) — a fluctuation of the inter-tropical surface pressure patterns and circulation in the Indian and Pacific Ocean — some 4,000 years ago.This means that we need bioenergy use for electricity.This method can Give us renewable energy from plants and at the same time, lessens the fast growth global warming. Richard Aronson(2012)

4.) Richard Aronson,a biologist at Florida Institute of Technology,said that if we keep pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, we could be in for another long-term collapse of coral reefs, which would be very bad for the developing world, so we probably start using bioenergy so that we could lessen carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere. Tilman, David(2012)

5.) Biomass energy brings numerous environmental benefits—particularly reducing many kinds of air pollution and net carbon emissio
