CEI mentor and friend Julian Simon called energy the “master resource” in his 1970 book Population Matters. He called it that because “energy enables us to convert one material into another.” Bizarrely, the current zeitgeist instead regards energy as some sort of cost or degradation of the earth. CEI has always stood steadfast against this insane view of energy.
Luckily, we have allies in the fight. Some of the nation’s best thinkers on energy issues have come together to create a blog entitled, fittingly, MasterResource. You may see a few of us even pop up there from time to time.
