And we must do so in a manner that meets all air pollution control regulations. This means burning foreign, low-sulfur oil in Edison generating plants.

Geothemial power. Solar power. Fuel cells. Fast breeder reactors. Nuclear fusion. Research is costly, but it will also help to reduce our reliance on foreign oil. Projects related to the environment are expensive, too, and in 1974 will account for about 20% of our capital expenditures.
