Bunning Bets on Coal-to-Liquids

U.S. Senator Jim Bunning said Kentucky’s coalfields could help curb the nation’s dependency on foreign oil.

Bunning believes the right incentives just need to be created.

The senator was the key speaker at an energy conference in Pike County, Ky., on June 18, 2007.
Bunning said the technology to convert coal to a liquid fuel source will drive production in Kentucky. He also said it would allow the U.S. to “capitalize on domestic resources that will fuel economic growth and provide energy security.”

Coal-to-liquids has been praised by lawmakers as a means to lessen U.S. dependence of foreign oil.
