It is concluded that the administration's goal of doubling coal production to 1.2 billions by 1985 is unlikely to be achieved; that annual production of 1.0 billion tons will be difficult to achieve. The chapters summarize available knowledge on U.S. coal development as follows: How much do we need? How much do we have? How do we get it? How can we get it to where we need it? How can we make it usable? How can we solve the social problems? What is the U.S. position in the world coal markets? Where do we go from here?
