This article reports on the Advanced Energy Initiative launched by U.S. President George W. Bush. The plan will increase U.S. Department of Energy clean energy research by 22 percent to improve the performance of power plants and vehicles. Bush also set a national goal to replace 75 percent of the country's Middle Eastern oil imports by 2025. The Advanced Energy Initiative will invest more research and development into zero-emission coal-fired power plants, solar and wind power and nuclear energy. But environmental and conservation groups question whether Bush is just talking the talk and will fall short when it comes time to walk the walk.
