PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Western governors promoted their region as a source of traditional and renewable energy during a weekend conference in Park City. Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead says he sees no contradiction between developing energy sources and keeping the environment clean.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert says nuclear power has to be part of the mix of sustainable energy. Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter says wildfires in his state are releasing more carbon pollution into the air than all of Idaho’s coal-fired power plants. Otter says federal agencies need to work together better to lessen fire hazards across the West.

The Western governors issued a “10-Year Energy Vision” that seemed written for universal agreement. It calls for developing reliable and clean energy from a variety of sources, while protecting the environment. The conference wrapped up Sunday at a resort hotel in Park City.
