The past two centuries witnessed the most astonishing leap in human welfare in history. But now the leaders of the world’s most prosperous and advanced nations are determined to undo it.
The ability to harness the enormous energy packed into fossil fuels—coal, oil, and natural gas—meant that for the first time, most human beings could enjoy a life that was not “poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” Virtually all the necessities of life—food, heat, clothing, shelter—depend on the conversion of energy. It was the transition from muscle, wind, and wood to fossil fuels as the chief source of that energy that gave us modern life.
Incredibly enough, throwing that all away is now considered a serious national policy.
Radical environmentalists have convinced many of the global elite that the greatest threat to mankind is climate change produced by the burning of fossil fuels—a view that has hardened into a ferociously enforced dogma. The Paris Agreement of 2015 embodies their goal of an unprecedented regression to the limited horizons of preindustrial societies.
Economic and energy experts Stephen Moore and Kathleen Hartnett White expose the madness of the green war on abundant energy in their new book, Fueling Freedom.
“With irrefutable facts, Fueling Freedom dazzlingly demonstrates the fantastic future that awaits America and the world if we pursue the unbelievable promise of the production revolution in natural gas and oil. Ever cheaper and more abundant energy will mean a richer and better life for all of us—if we let this revolution unfold. Steve Moore and Kathleen Hartnett White also forcefully expose the fossilized thinking of opponents of fossil fuels. This readable and persuasive book performs a crucial—and timely—public service.”
