Bush’s assertion that coal is America’s “economic destiny.” Despite a devastating, century-long legacy that has claimed millions of lives and ravaged the environ., coal has become hot again.

He illuminates the stark econ. imperatives America faces and the collusion of bus. and politics -- “big coal” -- that have set us on the dangerous course toward reliance on this energy source. Because we have failed to develop alternative energy sources, coal has effectively become the default fuel for the 21st century.
