Some billionaire limousine liberals are funding a divestment campaign to have people “break up with fossil fuels” this Valentine’s day.
But do they have any idea that means they can’t run their computers, charge their phones, or–yikes–watch documentaries about global warming?
Per the website Big Green Radicals:
This week, radical activists such as Bill McKibben, who runs 350.org, are asking Americans to “break up” with fossil fuels by divesting from fossil fuel investments. Folks like McKibben want to ban the use of plentiful fossil fuels, such as natural gas, to provide affordable energy for the world. With fossil fuels providing about 80% of our energy, McKibben’s proscription for the U.S. would be an economic and social disaster. Fossil fuels provide about 80% of our nation’s energy. Without fossil fuels—and fossil fuel byproducts like plastics—we wouldn’t have a whole host of consumer products such as cell phones and computers—or the energy to power them.
Share if you think this ‘divestment campaign’ is a disastrous idea.
