Quite often we hear plaudits for ethanol. So here is an interactive page from Conde Nast Portfolio which gives a simple overview of the anti-ethanol side of the story. Swallow an enormous grain of salt, then check it out. To quote Futurama: interesting if true.
The site has some interesting features, notably a list of the major players in the ethanol game. However, it departs from any fundamental discussion of whether or not ethanol is sustainable or efficient to produce. Instead, it mostly focuses on the impacts of ethanol on the prices of other corn-based goods.
