Steve Forbes on Energy & Oil
2000 Republican Primary Candidate for President
KEYES: Yes, I would. We’re going to have to try to take advantage of our energy reserves. We want to do it in a way that’s responsible-respecting ecological requirements and at the same time exploiting God’s precious resources for the good of our people. It’s also important because if we can reduce our dependence on foreign oil, it buys us time in order to make use of our ingenuity to develop alternative energy resources. So I would support that and I think that it’s a good way to go, provided we do it in a way that is responsible and that harnesses our scientific know-how to make sure we respect environmental requirements.
FORBES: The environmental technology is there to do the job right and you’re right, we should do it right now.
