If you are an ethanol fan, you should be having high hopes for Algae-derived bio-fuels. Those look much more promising and thrive off of CO2 that a lot of power plants need to desperately mitegate.
Best point in this thread. There is def a distincion between corn-based ethanol and its overall impact versus the algae-derrived kind.

Not sure since this is a vague article, but it looks like the study compares your regular E85-burning Impala or whatever to an electric car powered by your outlet (ultimately powered by waves or wind or whatnot). I don't think that it proves much beyond the blatantly obvious.
