Think about it, the difference in our life style and that of underdeveloped countries is our access to abundant, inexpensive energy.
Energy provided by fossil fuels.
Fossil fuels affect every aspect of our lives. They are source to heat or air condition our homes. They provide light in the darkness. They provide us transportation.
Most of our medicines have fossil fuel components.
We could not eat without fossil fuels. The fertilizers used in agriculture are based on fossil fuels. The farm equipment we depend on is fueled by fossil fuels. the trucks that bring our food to the stores are fueled by fossil fuels.
The materials to build homes, the material to build roads and on and on come from fossil fuels.
The list of uses for fossil fuels that make our lives better is almost endless.
Yet, as we have seen on this site, people rant and rave against fossil fuel development and production . All the while taking advantage of the benefits of fossil fuels such as the tires on bikes or the construction of bike trails.
That my friends is a mental disorder.
These people would undermine the very basics of our life in this country, while taking advantage of that lifestyle.
Yes, a mental disorder indeed.
