Coal must become the predominant energy source for this nation for the next 50- 100 years and petroleum must be conserved for petrochemicals. Coal gasification and liquefaction are wasteful processes that will lead tounnecessarily rapid depletion of coal reserves. Generation of electricity with coal is a more economical means of using coal for energy and this technology is already available. This paper discusses the advantages of a coal-electric energy economy and how such an economy.can be implemented.
