But fossil fuels = wealth = health, while climate alarmism = disaster.
From a Salon interview with philosophy major Hayes:
Salon: What’s the biggest thing that’s currently going unacknowledged when it comes to climate policy?
Hayes:” The big elephant in the room is that we are going to have to leave about four-fifths of the world’s proven fossil fuel reserves in the ground. The value of that is estimated to be as high as $20 trillion, and it’s hard to come up for a precedent of successful political movements that have managed to, essentially, make national corporations and nations walk away from $20 trillion. That is the big unanswered question: Can we do that?
So far with fossil fuels, we have developed a $65 trillion global economy. Such wealth has provided more people a higher standard of living than imaginable in the pre-fossil fuel era. Leaving wealth in the ground based on junk science-fueled alarmism would be devastating to our standard of living.
