Flash video meets memories of filmstrips in a new animated "movie" over at the Driving Ethanol website called "How Ethanol Is Made." It's pretty easy to understand, and is - as expected - entirely pro-ethanol. No critical assessment of water tables or questionable energy gains here.

What we do get is the story of how ethanol can be made from corn, but also "most sugar-containing plant materials, such as sorghum, wheat, barley and potatoes!" The animation shows us the multi-step process that corn goes through on its way to become ethanol.

All I can think of is that when I grow up, I'm going to Bovine University! Call this my way of "going yellow."
