Wilson of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to the United States Congress. The World Coal Study presents a strong case for coal -- a case agreed to by leaders from industry, research, and government in 16 major coal-using and coal-producing countries. It offers an option which is timely, economic, plentiful and environmentally acceptable. We need to know a lot more about coal -- about its real costs, its transportability, its availability, and the adequacy of the environmental controls on its use. We need to know of its possible role in settling a very unsettled international oil market. And we need to know where the bottlenecks are: What needs to be done, or undone, to build a sturdy and dependable coal bridge.
