Candidates Outline Environmental Policy Plans

Governor Ernie Fletcher and his Democratic challenger Steve Beshear outline their plans for environmental policy.

The pair sparred during a midday forum in Louisville.

Beshear says that global warming is a reality and promises to push for more coal production, along with new technology to burn coal more cleanly.

Fletcher also echoed clean-coal technology.

He cited the energy bill that passed during a special legislative session.

The bill allows the state to provide hundreds of millions of dollars in financial incentives to companies that build plants to convert coal to cleaner-burning alternative fuels.
