The Ethanol Effect is the newest hour-long special from the team behind Detroit Public Television’s Alfred I. DuPont/Columbia University Award-winning series Beyond the Light Switch.
From Iowa’s farm fields to Washington’s corridors of power, and from the algae-choked surface of the Great Lakes to the poisoned depths of the Gulf of Mexico, The Ethanol Effect investigates the human, environmental and political costs of growing and refining corn for ethanol in America.
Our guide through the tangled web of ethanol’s influence is David Biello. Follow Biello as he untangles the web of ethanol’s unexpected influence on our daily in The Ethanol Effect.
