One problem, corn is grown using petroleum products. Another, you would need to cover an area the size of South Africa in corn fields to produce enough ethanol to power all of todays cars, and siince the economy doubles every 20 years, we would need 2x as much by the time we got it all going.

We can't use electric, I'd like to see you make an electric jet. The only feasable solution is fusion, but the technology is incredibly expensive. If we had spent all the "War On Terror" money on research for fusion, we'd already be running off of that. The power plants could power the cities etc during the day, and at night they could get hydrogen out of water, because electrolosys requires more energy than you get out of it, we need the infinite energy of fusion. But instead, we're driving ourselves into a massive worldwide crisis.
