    CFACT senior policy analyst Paul Driessen questions the morality of greens who strongly condemn fossil fuels but wholly ignore the massive pollution and working conditions endured by those who mine the cobalt, rare-earths, and other metals that are necessary components of cell phones, computers, solar panels, wind turbines, and other so-called “renewable” resources. Driessen further touches on the hypocrisy of those who support only minimal economic development in Third World countries, and only what can be supported by wind and solar power — while they ensure unsustainable, unconscionable poverty, disease, and death in poor nations.
