ffi:lkiftlburfl RiQiittf'MQjj, Jfolesburo, I1L j&towtev, May 26, 1973 'National,Energy Policy Is Needed to Prevent Crisis' 1 - By DfcAN C. MILLER NEW YORK (UPI) - Arthur J, &ntry, Jr., president and chief executive of Combustion Engineering, Inc., the big «|ffgy«i , elated company, says the energy crunch could hit by the mld-'70s unless the country addresses itself to the problem "today, not tomorrow." Business World The C-E boss is in a position t© make such an assessment Boilers designed by his company produce electricity in ; 73 countries on six continents, hearty per cent of the Free World's thermal electric power is involved. Combustion Engineering designs, manufactures and sells a broad array of energy equipment including fossil fueled and nuclear generating systems. The Stamford, Conn, company has 90 plants and offices in the United States and Canada and an equal number of overseas affiliates, subsidiaries and licensees which generated sales of $1.18 billion in 1972. It employs about 34,000 people and ranks in the top 120 of the U.S. industrial companies. In an interview at his Park Avenue office, Santry, 53, a husky, handsome man who speaks with a slight New England accent, ranged over Brennan Is On Way Out: Black Leader WASHINGTON (UPI) - A prominent black labor leader said Friday he believes President Nixon would like to oust Labor Secretary Peter J. Brennan because (he is no longer a "usable instrument" for the White House. William Lucy of the fledgling Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU) said Brennan, who led the construction unions in New York, has no credibility left with the labor movement. "I would like to see him replaced with someone who is either clearly White House and doesn't travel under the Cloak of labor, or someone who is labor and is prepared to represent the interests of workers," Lucy said. One of the indications that Nixon wants to get rid of Brendan, he said, is "the way they keep him out of sight right after he testifies (before Congress)." This, he said, shows "they are not satisfied with his performance." "He has no credibility left with the trade union movement," Lucy said. "Therefore he is not a useable instrument as far as the White House is concerned." Lucy cited Brennan's support of minimum wage and trade reform legislation opposed by organized labor and he called Brennan's history of "denying blacks and other minorities access" to construction jobs. Lucy, who made his remarks on the eve of the CBTU's second annual convention, is secretary - treasurer of the 550,000-tnember State, County and Municipal Employes Union, many areas of the energy crisis. Among other things, he said he thought half the U.S. energy in year 2,000 will be supplied by nuclear systems, more coal must be utilized if the U.S. is to get the power it needs, and he was disappointed with Presi dent Nixon's recent energy message. Q. In February, a New York newspaper asked editorially if there really was an energy crisis. That paper concluded there was no energy crisis. Do you believe that there really is one? A. Basically, we must all believe there is a shortage of fuel. We have all read about the cutback of gasoline supplies. This past winter certain utilities in the Midwest had to ration the supply of gas to industrial firms. We continue to see increased demand for energy output; electric energy demand alone is growing at a rate of better than 7 per cent a year. Electric energy is not the most efficient form of power and uses relatively greater amounts of fuel resources. Our problem is that there is a growing preference for electrical energy. In 1970, about 10 per cent of the work done in our nation came from electrical energy. By the year 2,000 that proportion is expected to grow to 25 per cent. Q. What can we do to solve this energy crisis? A. First, we must develop a definitive national energy poli cy. Look at the petroleum market. We know that we don't have sufficient domestic oil production or refining capacity. Refineries that should be starting up right now do not exist because the oil companies have not been able to get permits to build their plants. Not one new domestic refinery started up in 1972, the first year in history that this happened. Assuming we did suddenly have a great expansion in refinery construction, it would still take a few years to get such plants on line. Then, if you get past that point, we would still need to bring in large amounts of imported oil, because domestic production is insufficient to meet the growing demand. We don't have the facilities to bring the oil ashore—our ports are too small for the super-tankers. And we don't have sufficient storage capacity. This last point brings up a security problem. If we do not have sufficient oil storage capacity, our suppliers could choke off our incoming oil and wreck our domestic economy. we face a serious problem unless we stimulate a development of domestic resources— unless we encourage offshore drilling, establish economic incentives that result in an increase in coal production and build refining capacity. The crunch could hit in the mid and latter part of the 1970s if we do not begin providing answers to these problems right away. Q. Many feel nuclear power is the ultimate answer. How does it fit into the picture in terms of capacity now and in the future? What are the big obstacles to getting nuclear plants on-stream? A. Nuclear power plants seem to offer the best solution to the problem of providing adequate electric power. They are clean, technologically safe, and the economics over the long-term have made them very competitive for baseload generating capacity for electric utilities. By the end of 1972, domestic utilities had ordered some 163 nuclear plants, with a total capacity of just under 150,000 megawatts. But there are still obstacles—including, problems of plant siting, plant licensing and psychological concerns over the ultimate safety of atomic power. People do not want plants to be located in their areas. In thelast two or three years there has been confusion and added complexity in licensing procedures, partly caused fejf a shift in the role of the Atomic Energy Commission, and in part by environmentalist con cern. The way people opposed to atomic energy are able to intervene and protract the licensing procedures has led to Sharply increased costs, all eventually paid by the con sumer. Q. How safe is nuclear energy as a power source? A. As far as I am concerned, I'd be perfectly happy to live alongside a light water-cooled nuclear power plant. I think the nuclear plant is, and should be regarded as, a good neighbor. Q. One expert has stated that a little pollution must be accepted to get the power we need. Is this the case? A. So far as nuclear power is concerned, I think the primary problem is the warm water, a by-product of a nuclear plant. It is a fact that the steam cycle in a nuclear plant is less efficient than in a fossil facility, therefore more heat is dumped to the condenser and eventually back into, the body of water near which the plant is located We sometimes refer to this as thermal enrichment, because in some areas the warmer water is actually helpful to marine life. On Long Island the area around a nuclear plant located near Northport has very good fishing. FIRST CHURCH Of THE OPEN BIBLE 521 W. Losey St. TUES., MAY 2S — 9-?

Not Responsible For Accidents Q. Let's assume that the United States and the rest of the world eventually will go from conventional to nuclear power. When will this be possible? A. We expect that by the year 2000 fully half the energy in the United States will be generated by nuclear power plants. By 1980 about 130*140,000 megawatts or 21 per cent of total generating capacity should be provided by nuclear power with 65 per cent in fossil and the remaining 14 per cent from hydroelectric or other forms of generation. Q. What is the future for coal in the next few years? A. We feel the United States must find a way to use its coal resources. We know that at a minimum this nation has 300 years' supply of coal. We know we must find a form of "clean" coal, or a way to get gas from coal, sometime during the next few years. Our industry must find ways to meet the demand for power by using all of these fuels in a manner compatible with environmental concern. Q. Recently we've been aware of public opinion polls on jhe public's feelings about business, and they indicate a dramatic drop In public confi- F mce in business. Do you listen such polls? A. They're probably accurate In reflecting a trend. This {doesn't surprise me too much. It also doesn't surprise me that we have not done a good job in .telling ourselves. When a big l &mpany gets exposed doing things that none of us admires, it brushes off on all of us. If the majority of the people really thought business was generally unsavory, this would be very serious. But it doesn't appear to me that we are in this position yet. There are still enough companies and businessmen who are concerned about the nation and its people, and who are trying to improve the situation. Q. What did you think of FOR SALE 10,000 BTU Whirlpool Window AIR CONDITIONER UMd Vtry Llitto CALL 342-7455 President Nixon's finergy Mes< sage? A. The messaage was long in coming and more indefinite than we expected. One significant omission was the lack of major funding for research this nation needs to develop a greater self • sufficiency in domestic coal oil and gas production. We simply must do more research on coal gasification, coal liquefication; extraction of shale oil, and the breeder reactor.
