The reading and the lecture are both about ethanol. Whereas the author of the reading states that ethanol is not the alternative to gasoline. The lecturer casts doubt on the main points made in the reading by providing three reasons. First of all, the author believes that ethanol does not help to mitigate pollution in e nvironment. Additionally, he suggests that ethanol also produces carbon dioxide during the burning, and it increases greenhouse gases. However, the lecturer disputes this point. he mentions that ethanol is a good option for gasoline. Furthermore, he points out that ethanol is made from plants and it abosorbs lots of carbon dioxide during photosynthesis. Secondly. the author claims that the number of plants rapidly decreased from which ethanol made. Also, he presents the idea that it needs lots of plants to manufacture ethanol due to which the food of animals might be scarce. Nevertheless, the lecturer refutes this argument. he argues that actually ethanol is made from inedible parts of plants. in addition, he brings the point due to that animal food does not be jeopardized. Finally, the writer in the reading feels that price of the ethanol could not make competitive with gasoline because the price of it and gasoline are same even if the government supports ethanol production. Moreover, he posits that If the government of the SA does not fund the ethanol at that time the price of it might be skyrocketing. On the other hand, the speaker believes that ethanol can make competition in terms of price with gasoline. when the product of the ethanol increased at that time the supply of it increase and price will drop, and he asserts that one of the scholar's research estimated that when the amlount of ethanol increased threefold then price would be decreased by two-third third. In conclusion, both the writer and the speaker hold conflicting views about fuel ethanol. It's crystal clear that they will have trouble finding common ground on this issue.
