Sen. Graham promotes nuclear power, 'clean coal' in draft renewables bill
A key Senate Republican is floating legislation that would give a big boost to nuclear power and coal as part of a nationwide standard for renewable energy, according to a draft bill obtained by E&E. South Carolina's Lindsey Graham wrote the measure requiring the country to generate a certain percentage of "clean energy" over the next 15 years: 13 percent by 2012, 20 percent by 2020, and 25 percent by 2025.
