Democratic governor Brian Schweitzer of Montana told the Washington press corp that the states are taking the lead in finding solutions to global warming and the nation's energy problems. Backing up his statement is a $1.3 billion coal-to-liquid-fuel facility that will be built in central Montana. He sees the plant as a source of new jobs and reducing dependence on foreign oil. He promised that CO2 emitted by the process will be trapped and pumped back into the earth. While noting he had to phone the mother of soldier killed in the Middle East, Schweitzer said solutions to the nation's energy problems could mean that future generations will work in the energy industry, "not wearing helmets and combat boots."
