No.  They are adding all the fuel usage and machinery to raise the crop as part of making ethanol. They seam to think that if ethanol went away all that fuel and machinery usage would go away to. The land would still be farmed maybe different crop but still farmed. If they include that then they should include the energy to make the pipe and drilling rigs, energy to drill for oil, ship usage to bring it to USA, along with rail and trucking to refinery and to the farm. I'm sure that is not included now.
