Key Facts
More than 80% of the world’s energy and most industrial and consumer products are derived from hydrocarbons or fossil fuels—the most affordable, abundant, reliable energy source today.
Fossil fuels have helped raise life expectancy, increase our standard of living, revolutionize agricultural production, and make it possible for the earth to support billions of people.
Bans on the extraction of fossil fuels and the production of energy from them—through caps, mandates, international agreements, and investment restrictions—are immoral and harmful in a world where billions are still suffering from energy poverty.
