We don’t pick favorites in the presidential race — or any election — but it’s worth watching Vivek Ramaswamy’s masterful takedown of MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on the issue of fossil fuels and climate change. Vivek was factually correct on these three critical points:
- Weather-related deaths — per capita — are down by more than 90% over the last century. And he is also right that access to cheap and abundant fossil fuels saves millions more lives – than they cost.
- Far more people die from cold temperatures than warmer temperatures
- Access to cheap and abundant fossil fuels for energy saves millions more lives than it costs.
It’s fairly clear that neither Andrea nor nearly anyone else in the media knows these fundamental facts. Or they choose to ignore them.
