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: Wind turbines are destroying land- and sea-scapes in the UK and Germany. They are killing seabirds, birds of prey and bats, Citizens are up in arms about loss of wildlife, disturbance of the landscape and higher energy costs. Promises of closing coal and nuclear power plants by fast approaching dates are in sharp contrast with slow addition of wind and solar power to replace them.

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.
