Vice-President Cheney Talks About the Future, Part 3
WASHINGTON D.C. — 3. The good news is that energy policy occupied a prominent place in the Vice-President’s remarks. The bad news is that the supposition from earlier in the week seemed to be borne out; solar and wind were not presented as significant alternatives.
The components of energy policy mentioned by Vice-President Cheney were expanding refining capacity, increasing production from domestic oil sources (including ANWR) and certain alternative forms of energy — hydrogen fuel cells, clean coal and — brace yourself, Bountyhunter, and take heart, John_b — ethanol.
