These include banning cars that actually work and reducing CO2 emissions to zero. All no doubt giving ministers a […]

    • H. Sterling Burnett, American Thinker

    A world without fossil fuels would be a much more brutal place. Until Pope Francis understands the vital role fossil fuels have and should continue to play around the world, he should stick to saving souls rather than pontificating over peoples’ energy choices.
