In our story, “Putting Wood in Your Gas Tank,” in the Spring 2006 issue, it was stated that the part of the corn plant that was being made into ethanol is the stover – the stalks and husks not used for food. Many hope that in the future stover will be used, but at the moment, it is the corn kernels that are being processed into ethanol.

And we also said that “ethanol is essentially alcohol.” There’s no essentially about it: ethanol is alcohol.
