Environmentalists often paint a picture of the Earth is crumbling as a result of mankind’s use of natural resources—particularly through fracking, oil exploration, and the use of fossil fuels like coal. They warn that we are using up resources too quickly and causing pollution that will scorch the planet and ruin our water supply. Yet the good news is that our environment has been steadily improving and that better, more environmentally friendly ways to access the energy we need. Of course, we all want to protect our environment, but we shouldn’t let environmentalists scare us into embracing a radical anti-energy, anti-development agenda.
