The World is Getting Better Thanks to Fossil Fuels! (Guest: Merril Matthews)

January 9, 2020

In terms of human well-being and prosperity, and environmental quality, the world is getting better and better, despite what climate alarmist are indoctrinating kids to believe.

Human caused climate change is not ending the world, indeed human health, quality of life, and environmental quality has improved dramatically in just the past 10 years, thanks in large part to development and innovation driven by  the use of fossil fuels. Schools and the media are lying to kids when they say the humans and capitalism are destroying the earth. By almost any measure, the world is improving, with rates of poverty, hunger, infant mortality declining dramatically, and life spans, crop yield, forest regrowth, health all growing dramatically, all led by market innovations driven by the increased use of fossil fuels.
