Luis Seguessa, the President of Fundacion Códigos and an expert on climate change,warned that the next United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development Río+20 reiterates the error of not discussing the main cause of climate change: “the excessive consumption of oxygen from vehicles ”.

"It is urgent that this must be taken into account and that it be effectively stopped before it is too late and that the legislators of the world put aside interests and understand what the main cause of the problem is in order tocreate an international treaty with a favorable outcome for all living beings and humanity ", alarms the Uruguayan researcher.

Rio + 20 is just another world symposium to strengthen the idea that the problem is in gas emissions, but the solution is not there", Seguessa indicates while explaining that “a vehicle consumes an average between 50 and 100 liters of air per second".

 In regard, he points out that "the current automotive population is more than 850 million units, so there are more than 20 billion liters of air consumed per second on the planet and returned to the atmosphere at medium heat and explosively."

La Fundación Códigos Codigos has always highlighted the importance of automotive companies replacing current internal combustion engines with electric motors or other environmentally friendly technology that does not consume oxygen.

Likewise, he adds: «the solution does not go through a fuel change, even if hydrogen is the solution. Even though it is easily manufactured with water and in an electrolysis process, and although it is true that only water vapor comes out of the exhaust, this is not the right way, but a halfway, because the old technology of propulsion of the MCI or Internal Combustion Engine, and in this way we would continue to consume oxygen on a large scale and thus weaken the ozone layer. The solution is in a change of technology, and not in a change of fuel”.
