I won't be watching this, but they can be refined to various degrees… I hope he talks about bunker fuel. I'm not eco-nazi. I'm a realist about the balance we need to strike between nature and necessity. BUT, BUNKER FUEL IS DEADLY for people and nature and at least shipping vessels are beginning to move away to electric.

If we want energy independence preventing us from having more trips out to the middle east for 'nation building' then renewable energy is the way to go

This isn't about fossil fuels, it's about crippling the West. They gaslight us into actually believing that the UK and Australia will make any difference to climate change while China, India and Brazil are allowed to carry on growing and polluting. If small countries like the UK use the equivalent of 2 Earths of resources, just how much do you think China and India will use?

Alex is right on. Environmentalists and those who support climate change hate humanity. It's a death wish we should not support.

I don't subscribe to the mindless CO2 panic but do feel we should be making less pollution. If coal can be cleaned up it should be looked at but would rather we invest in nuclear technology as in the Rolls Royce SMR (Small Modular Reactor). I do believe if we go down this crazy zero CO2 path, our country and most other western countries who follow us will be decimated and the massive polluting countries like China will rule the world in more ways than one.

Nothing on the planet lives in or on fossil fuels, therefore using them cleans the environment. Like Alex says, to the betterment of humans which inevitably results in an attitude of care for the environment.

Main valid point is we need to re consider non uranium centralised nuclear fossil fuels, carbon fuels isn’t sustainable regardless of the eco argument.

Four reasons people deny climate change. 1. They are religious nutcases. 2. They have a political philosophy of individualism (aka selfishness) 3. They are conspiracy minded simpletons. 4. They have a financial incentive to promote pollution. This guy will be at least one of those I guarantee it. Climate change is very easy. CO2 traps heat. We dig up billions of tons of the stuff every year and release it into the atmosphere. Put 2 and 2 together, its not hard.

The world runs on energy, doesn't matter where that energy comes from so long as there is enough of it and it's continually being produced, therefore the argument we should stick to fossil fuels is just not a valid one considering the negative environmental impact. We need to focus on developing fusion reactors and where possible utilising geothermal power.

Lower emissions in Europe and US, raise them in China 🥴. Too many people on here unwilling to listen to another point of view
