America is trying to move away from fossil fuels, but does renewable energy always mean it's good for the environment? When you look at corn ethanol, that might not be the case.
Corn ethanol is a renewable energy, but is it clean?
There is a big debate over corn ethanol. It is renewable, and makes America less dependent on foreign oil, but how does increasing corn production affect the environment? With a lot of carbon emissions in ethanol production and a lack of water in the High Plains region, corn ethanol might not be as environmentally as you might think. So, where does that leave us in the fight against fossil fuels?
