Primary ingredients for corn is diesel and petroleum based fertilizer. Ethanol is not renewable energy unless it is produced without natural gas, diesel, or fertilizer.

And b) David, you are just playing the part of a troll. **Luckily**, Tim Pawlenty (R) is no longer governor, so things are looking up in terms of backing away from dubious ethanol (I'm not a fan of ethanol).
"Minnesota has mandated a 10% mixture of gasoline and ethanol (gasohol) since 1997. Pawlenty signed into law in May 2005 a bill that will raise the minimum mandated mixture to 20% in 2013. Pawlenty has also lobbied the Governors' Ethanol Coalition to mandate higher ethanol use nationwide."
"As of January 2008, three states Missouri, Minnesota, and Hawaii required ethanol to be blended with gasoline in motor fuels."
