Good green (in theory)

Ethanol is looking like one of those green initiatives to get us off fossil fuels that looks good in theory, but not really that good in practice.

Thing is, it apparently it's having OPPOSITE effect. Currently, it actually takes more energy to make than it creates -- takes more gas to make a gallon of ethanol than if we weren't. This may not always be the case as technologies improve, however.

Another one of life's little ironies...
