Solving the energy crisis: You decide
As Americans grapple with record oil and gas prices, politicians facing angry voters have offered up a variety of solutions. Tell us what you think.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) -- President Bush says he's using his last six months in office to push new energy plans that include electricity from coal.
Reliable sources of electricity must be part of a strong economy, and "there is no more reliable source of electricity than coal," Bush said in a speech Thursday to the West Virginia Coal Association gathered at The Greenbrier Resort.
He said promoting a variety of energy sources will be part of the "sprint to the finish" he plans for his presidency.
Coal should be part of the solution to reduce dependence on foreign oil, he said, adding that the United States has 250 years of coal reserves that leave the country "in good shape."
After the speech, Bush went to Kennebunkport, Maine, for a long weekend with his family.
