John Kasich on Energy

Kasich is skeptical of “clean energy” sources, arguing that they are too expensive and would retard job growth.

JOHN KASICH: “You want to bring more jobs back to the Mahoney valley in things like manufacturing? You better have the cheapest energy you can have in the world. Do you know how much these alternative energies cost? A lot more than our traditional energy sources.”

However, Kasich believes in developing various methods of energy generation, including renewables, and says that advances in battery technology could make sources like wind and solar more economical.

JOHN KASICH: “But let me tell you also what we're trying to do: We want all the sources of energy. We want to dig coal, but we want to clean it when we burn it. We believe in natural gas, we believe in nuclear power, and you know what else I believe in? I happen to believe in solar energy, wind energy, efficiency - renewables matter. Now, it doesn't mean because you pursue a policy of being sensitive to the environment – cause we don't know how much humans actually contribute – but it is important we develop renewables. Battery technology can unleash an entirely different world. So the fact is that you can have a strong environmental policy at the same time that you have strong economic growth. They are not inconsistent with one another.”

10 March, 2016: Kasich speaks at the twelfth Republican debate (0:23 – 1:40)
