eight percent of Kentucky ‘s electricity comes
from coal. and we hay e some of the cheapest
prices in the nation But there are 20 states
with lower energy bills because we are so
wasteful. " The big bill is coming." he said.
referring to the many other ill»effects of wast-
iitg energy. like black ltiiig. global warming.
poverty. etc. “How w ill we account for it
when It does?"

He went on to add that. w hile Kentucky
is in a veritable state of em ironiiieiital crisis.
we are in a position to make some fundamen-
tal and critical changes to otir system that
would allow for greater sustainability in the
future. He quoted the original definition of
“sustainability" as “meeting the needs of the
present to mold compromising ttiture genera-
tioiis‘ ability to meet their own needs."

One thing we have to do. he said. is look
at otir situation as honestly as we can. by dis-
pelling a couple of myths: first. that there are
limited opportun
