Gqlesburg Register-Mail, Golesburg, HI. Thursday, Moy 3, 1973 17 Producers' Prexy: Coal, With 'Sprucing Up,' Could Help Energy Crisis CARBONDALE, 111. (UPI) The one-time solid citizen of the fossilized fuel world was pictured Wednesday as a neglected stepchild that with some sprucing up and new respect would solve the energy problems of the United States and the world. "Today the coal industries of the world must re -establish their natural preeminence in energy supply against both the forces of external competition and internal neglect," said Carl E. Bagge, president of the National Coal Association. Appearing at a School of Economics lecture at Southern Illinois University, Bagge warned that a multination scramble for declining oil sup­ plies represented a real threat to world peace. He Mid a recent United Nations study of global energy resources showed that coal represents 93 per cent of the total fossil fuel reserves, leaving only 4 per cent for oil and 3 per cent for natural gas. "It is an aberration of history that the very fuel which gave birth to the industrial revolution and almost single-handedly supported two centuries of world' wide mechanical and economic progress has been allowed to' fall into disfavor only because It has been denied an appropriate place In that progress, 0 Bagge said. During an afternoon news conference, Bagge said Illinois "la the logical battleground for resolution of the energy-environment dilemma" in th United States because it has the largest coal reserves of any of the adjacent 46 states. Under present standards, Bagge warned, coal mining in Illinois "faces a doomsday." The NCA is "watching very closely" the progress of legis­ lation in Springfield which would relax restrictions on the sulfur content of coal used in Illinois, he said. In seeking answers to pollution problems "what the coal industry needs is the gift of time," Bagge said. He said more money was needed for coal to oil and coal to gas research in the nation. He said Illinois had cut coal research funds while increasing pollution policing funds. He said the federal government should apply the same crash program technique to the coal problems as it did to developing a synthetic rubber during World War II. 420 E.
