On the Assertion that Fossil Fuels are Bad
It makes me sick in that if it wasn't for cheap and abundant fossil fuels we'd still all be living in squalor and dying off before the age of 40. The fact of the matter here is that electricity = modernity = prosperity and the sight of all of these radical environmentalists who are literally against anything that works (fossil fuels, nuclear, and hydro) but who themselves have benefited handsomely not simply from fossil fuels (preaching from the confines of their air-conditioned offices) but from minerals (they apparently think that all of these cell-phones and computers simply drop out of the sky) taken from the very mines that they're also against makes it even more nauseating. I mean, talk about a virulent, spoiled bunch of lunatics.
