Publisher's Summary

Fossil fuel energy is the lifeblood of the modern world. Before the Industrial Revolution, humanity depended on burning wood and candle wax. But with the ability to harness the energy in oil and other fossil fuels, quality of life and capacity for progress increased exponentially. Thanks to incredible innovations in the energy industry, fossil fuels are as promising, safe, and clean an energy resource as has ever existed in history. Yet, highly politicized climate policies are pushing a grand-scale shift to unreliable, impractical, incredibly expensive, and far less efficient energy sources. Today, "fossil fuel" has become such a dirty word that even fossil fuel companies feel compelled to apologize for their products.

In Fueling Freedom, energy experts Stephen Moore and Kathleen Hartnett White make an unapologetic case for fossil fuels, turning around progressives' protestations to prove that if fossil fuel energy is supplanted by "green" alternatives for political reasons, humanity will take a giant step backwards and the planet will be less safe, less clean, and less free.

    Story
    "Troublingly scathing of the green energy development industry"

    Whilst the historical importance of fossil fuels is clear and well documented here, the repetitive and damning rhetoric which claims the green movement a waste of time and money flies in the face of the overwhelming environmental science consensus.
    What it does say quite clearly is America has more fossil fuel to hand and therefore to sell than any other country and so we should just keep using fossil fuels ...
    read/listen for an interesting appraisal of humanities rise thanks to fossil energy, but not if you're looking for a balanced view of where it stands in partnership with future renewables - this is a clear 'one or the other' story.
