June was an extraordinary month from the legislative perspective: Both the House and Senate Appropriations committees acted with unexpected alacrity and completed their work on DOE’s oil and natural gas budget activities. While both houses of Congress restored funding to the program in several areas, very little of the funding is targeted for the historical oil and natural gas programs.

“Clean coal” is rapidly becoming more important as energy demands continue to rise. Clean coal is coal that has been stripped of minerals and other impurities. It is then gasified and burned, and resulting flue gases can be treated with steam and re-burned to make CO2 in the flue gas economically recoverable.

While few of us, as taxpayers, believe that growing the deficit is good for tomorrow’s taxpayers, the climate in which the House actions has proceeded reflects both the unpopularity of the oil and gas industry in Washington and the tendency of elected officials to play to popular themes in the eyes of their constituents.
