Why is ethanol better than gasoline?

    When the production of ethanol is done correctly with the right crops and biomass, it can often times produce a lot less green house gases.  Not only do certain types of biomass help retain carbon in the soil, but others can create fuel from simple waste products such as sawdust, wood chips, and parts of corn stalks that are not used.  It also lowers many of the fluctuations associated with oil pricing.  Another benefit is that certain biomass can be grown on lands that are not suitable for food crops.  Ethanol also has reductions in many other types of emissions such as carbon monoxide and volatile organic carbons.  There are still some drawbacks of ethanol such as poor fuel effeciency and increased production of ozone.
