An AP investigation, shows that the ethanol era has proved damaging to the environment far more than the government has acknowledged.

The AP report says as farmers rushed to find new places to plant corn, they touched off a cascade of unintended consequences, including wiping out millions of acres of conservation land, polluting water and destroying habitat.

Kansas ranks ninth as the largest ethanol-producing state.
