Seems There’s No Stopping Fossil Fuels

U.S. oil production is running at 12.2 million barrels of oil a day this year, up from 11 million a day last year. American shale now accounts for roughly 10% of the world's oil supply, reckons The Wall Street Journal.

Oil, natural gas, and coal account for 81% of the world's energy consumption, reports Axios.com, a figure that hasn't changed in 30 years despite the rapid growth of renewables such as wind and solar. Fossil fuel consumption has grown along with them.

  1. Fossil fuels allowed humans to become civilized and develop modern civilization
    Despite the hype fossil fuels will be an important component of energy production
    for the foreseeable future. It is also instructive that many if not most of the vocal opponents of fossil fuels do not live as if climate change is an existential threat to
    human existence.
