Energy Leaders Gather in Houston; Call for Balanced, Careful Approach to Energy Policy

Houston Mayor Bill White, speaking to a group of executives who represent an array of energies ranging from solar and wind to nuclear, coal and traditional oil and gas, cautioned Washington to tread carefully when putting together U.S. energy policy.

White, as keynote speaker, joined nearly 25 thought leaders and captains of industry who presented their views at the event, "America's Energy Future: Assessing Our Paths to Energy Security." The forum was hosted and organized by the Greater Houston Partnership.

White said the nation should not abandon one form of energy or energy policy for the sake of another. He said that if, for example, a quota was placed on U.S. imports, prices would surge out of control. Or, if environmental standards were lifted on drilling, resources would be quickly depleted, and the country would be in worse shape than before.

"There has been no time when this nation has had more serious choices to make on energy policy," White said.
