President Bush's forthcoming national energy policy has former Secretary of Interior James Watt feeling warm and fuzzy.

In an interview with the Denver Post, the controversial Reagan appointee says the Bush administration is returning to policies he advocated in the early 1980s. Increase production! Increase drilling! More power plants!

Like a number of Reagan's environmental advisers, Watt left his position amid controversy.
