In the Fox debate, Chris Wallace asked Dr. Ben Carson about the Renewable Fuel Standard. Dr. Carson said it would be unfair to break promises the government has made and then said this: “We are blessed with tremendous energy in this nation and we need to be talking about new sources of energy. 70% of our population lives bicoastally; what about hydroelectric power? We can develop that. We have so much natural gas now. And we can liquefy it and transfer it across the seas so Europe can depend on us instead of Putin — put him in the box where he belongs.”
