Do fossil fuels like coal and oil harm your health? Well many environmentalists would have you believe so, but Marlo Lewis, Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, offers a different perspective. Comments Lewis: “Since the Industrial Revolution, life expectancy has more than doubled to 69 years. Fossil fuels are the chief energy source that made the Industrial Revolution and modern civilization possible. Today’s high yield agriculture, which feed billions, would also be impossible without fossil fuels. Without fossil fuels, most of today’s environmental activists would be poorer and sicker or would not even exist.”
