U.S. Energy Secretary Says Coal Has a Bright Future
June 27, 2020 - The U.S. Secretary of Energy was in Pennsylvania Friday touring CONSOL Energy’s mining complex.
It’s the largest underground mine complex in North America.
Secretary Dan Brouillette said his goal is to promote energy policies that include fossil fuels, renewable energy and nuclear energy.
“What I’ve learned today and what I’ve seen here today is that we need to start thinking about coal in a different way. Coal has a bright future here in America,” he said.
Brouillette was in Ohio the day before with Vice President Mike Pence to see Lordstown Motors’ new all-electric pickup truck.
