Those are some pretty high-falutin schools saying ethanol is not an adequate replacement for oil because of the amount of oil needed to produce ethanol. The article doesn't say whether the study takes into account ethanol run trucks and tractors to transport and cultivate the ethanol, or sticks with gasoline powered trucks and tractors. If the study relies on the latter, then it comes as no surprise that they reached this result. Regardless, it adds more "fuel" to the fire, if I may use more tired cliches.
