On the Shale Oil and Gas Revolution
It is one of the greatest, most life-enhancing technological advances of the past hundred years. And, while, yes, it has probably contributed somewhat to the increases in CO2 (though I would argue that most of it is thermally induced and not from factories, SUVs, etc.) and temperature, the changes have been modest and the positives (the powering of our autos, reductions in the cost of electricity, improvements in the overall economy, etc.) have far, FAR, outweighed the negatives....Of course, if the greens want to start their own little society in which everything (including hospitals) is run by wind turbines, algae, and french fry grease, who am I to get in their way?
