Radical environmentalists have convinced the global elite the greatest threat to mankind is the changing climate produced by the burning of fossil fuels. It has become the dogma of much of the nation’s establishment, even though replacing fossil fuel with medieval technologies of wind, solar, and biomass is not feasible now and won’t be in the foreseeable future.

No one has told the true story of the world’s, and particularly the United States’, vast, inexpensive nonpolluting fossil fuels as Stephen Moore and Kathleen Hartnett White have in their new book, Fueling Freedom: Exposing the Mad War on Energy. Every high school student currently being bombarded by green lies should read this book. The authors’ lucid, precise, comprehensive, yet simple writing style can help set the world back on a course toward energy sanity.

The authors tell the story of the Industrial Revolution, showing how it was driven by energy development. For the first time in history, they note, all the people, and not just the privileged, reaped the benefits. Before doing so, they describe the travails of life for centuries without efficient and abundant energy, which provides a succinct description of the problems being foisted upon us today. “Most green energy policies undermine human progress,” they write. “They are regressive, disproportionately hurting low and middle income families by driving energy prices higher, thus eroding their standard of living.”
