Thus, the raw information that answers the first part of each question, such as air pollutant concentrations resulting from biofuel combustion, is judged to be significant if it approaches or exceeds conditions that have been considered unacceptable in other situations, such as national air quality standards. The justification for this approach is the simple observation that billions of dollars and thousands of careers have been devoted globally to the alleviation of air pollution problems in cities.

Such information is needed to protect the health of those who live in and near homes with wood stoves. S. homes will have such stoves, not counting those with traditional open fireplaces (USEPA, 1985b). If rational and effective control is to be achieved over this type of air pollution, much more information will be needed about those ill effects that can be expected at different levels of exposure. Indeed, the need for this information has been highlighted by a blue ribbon scientific com- Recognition of the Problem 21 mittee convened to examine the state of knowledge about health effects from air pollution (USNRC, 1985).

Post-biofuel transition in the Republic of Korea, 1965-1980. Oil-based fuels steadily replaced firewood as the principal energy source during this period of rapid economic growth and rural development. Based on data in E. H. Kim et al. (1983). biofuel will of necessity remain of major importance well into the next century for much of the world's population. In this case, therefore, the problems caused by this biomass usage cannot be expected to solve themselves but must be addressed directly (Smith, 1986b).
