VARNEY: "OK. Not 19 million. 2.7 million. But Steve, my question to you is, do you believe that there will be any new jobs created if we destroy fossil fuels and tax everybody very heavily?"
FORBES: "You answered the question by asking it, the answer is no. It is going to be a job destroyer. Destroying high-paying jobs in the natural gas and oil industries, which had been booming until recently, in terms of expansion, making us a global energy powerhouse around the world. And you're going to see it too on what they’re doing to the economy. These new regulations, higher taxes, those are huge government created headwinds.”
