In the long term, coal is probably not a big part of the answer to America's energy challenge. But in the short term, we simply can't overlook that today around 50% of America's electricity comes from coal. A clean, quiet Electric Car is an impressive inventionÂ…but for now, we must face the fact that much of the electricity to run that car comes from coal.
We should commit to developing our natural resources like coal in an environmentally sound manner, and focus on increasing research, development, and demonstration of clean coal and possible carbon capture and sequestration technologies.
