Ethanol from coal?

Carbon cloud over a green fuel:

Late last year in Goldfield, Iowa, a refinery began pumping out a stream of ethanol, which supporters call the clean, renewable fuel of the future.

There's just one twist: The plant is burning 300 tons of coal a day to turn corn into ethanol...

Renewable blah blah blah energy independence blah blah blah, but it's all just a ploy to subsidize Archer Daniels Midland.
