Wisconsin Could Lead The Economy Away From Expensive Corn Ethanol

Interesting story in the Sunday Journal Sentinel about Wisconsin's possible role in advancing the use of so-called cellulosic ethanol - - derived from wood chips or grasses instead of corn.

Ethanol produced from corn requires too much water, petroleum and energy to generate much real savings.

This blog has posted a number of commentaries on this issue, going back to March.

And Denny Caneff, executive director of the River Alliance of Wisconsin, has been hammering home this point since January.
