John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net and efn-usa.org: One simple graph of carbon dioxide emissions versus poverty and prosperity would make most people understand the tremendous importance of fossil fuels. But extremists using the motto of save the world from catastrophic climate disruption demand that humanity abandon the most important thing for the modern world, namely plentiful, reliable, has many uses and by-products, fossil fuels. There is going to be a struggle to keep the modern world.

John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net and efn-usa.org: Individuals with science degrees (John Holdren, Tom Cochran, Michael Mann, Jim Hansen, etc.), organizations with science in their name (national academies of science), universities, organizations with misleading names (Natural Resources Defense Council), actors, main stream media, and politicians have been working since the 1970s to have the world stop using fossil fuels. This would set humanity back to lifestyles and life expectancies of the Middle Ages or at least back to the 1800s when there was much slavery and horse manure.

John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net and efn-usa.org: Many people say that we must get rid of meats, modern agriculture and fossil fuels because they produce "a pollutant," carbon dioxide. This idea is abhorrent to many. It will kill billions of people and stop modern civilization dead in its tracks. Carbon dioxide is non-toxic at any historic atmospheric level. It is an essential molecule of life. At allaboutenergy.net, we want to keep using fossil fuels, modern agriculture, etc. We want clean water, air and land. We want to preserve wilderness, wildlife habitat and biodiversity. We don’t need cities and farms everywhere, killing off most wildlife, having only mono-culture farms across the planet. We want nuclear energy as soon as possible for everyone qualified to use it.
