No son los Biocombustibles, Es el “Mercado” Alimentario.

China’s Meat Consumption Causing Global Grain Shortage, Study Finds

A change in Chinese meat consumption habits since 1995 is diverting eight billion bushels of grain per year to livestock feed and could empty global grain stocks by September 2010, according to a new study from Biofuels Digest.

The study, “Meat vs Fuel: Grain use in the U.S. and China, 1995-2008,” concluded that a complete shutdown of the U.S. ethanol industry would extend the deadline only until 2013.

“It’s not food, it’s not fuel, it’s China,” said Jim Lane, editor of Biofuels Digest and author of the report.

The study determined that China’s meat consumption since 1995 has increased by 112 percent to 53 kilograms per person per year.

“If the Chinese people had consumed the same amount of meat, per person, in 2007 as in 1995, there would have been enough grain left over to support 927 million people with food for an entire year,” said Lane.

ESTE CAMBIO EN LOS HABITOS ALIMENTICIOS DE CHINA ES UN FUERTE MOTIVO, PARA QUE LOS PRECIOS DE LOS ALIMENTOS SE ELEVEN EN TODO EL MUNDO. LA DIETA PASO A SER UN COSUMO MAS ELEVADO DE GRANOS Y POR LO TANTO LAS RESERVAS MUNDIALES DE GRANOS SE VENAFECTADAS. ESTE FENOMENO CONTRIBUYE EN EL COSUMO ALIMENTICIO DEL MAYOR PAIS DEL MUNDO, IMPACTA MUCHO MAS QUE LA GENERACION DE BIOCOMBUSTIBLES; EN LA ESTABILIDAD DE LOS PRECIOS DE ALIMENTOS.

LOS BIOCOMBUSTIBLES SOLO SERAN UN EXITO SI SIGUEN MODELOS DE SUSTENTABLES Y DE MERCADOS LOCALES. NO COPIAR EXPERIENCIAS ANTERIORES DONDE SE CENTRALIZABA EL NEGOCIO Y ESO DA LUGAR A LAS ESPECULACIONES DEL MERCADO; YA QUE ENTRAN EN JUEGA INTERMEDIARIOS, QUE ELEVAN EL COSTO DE VENTA FINAL.
