Marian Tupy, Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute and co-author of the new book, Superabundance: The Story of Population Growth, Innovation, and Human Flourishing on an Infinitely Bountiful Planet, explains that, despite the World Economic Forum’s agenda of depopulation, the world actually faces an “underpopulation” problem. Environmentalists are pushing regulations to hike the prices of oil & gas up, claiming that their quantities are scarce. In reality, we have more than enough at our fingertips. The left is unwilling to acknowledge that there are tradeoffs between environmental policies and human well-being. The people who are the greatest emitters of CO2 aren’t bound by the same regulations that aim to cut down on CO2 emissions. CO2 regulations have no beneficial impacts. CO2 is crucial to plant growth; it isn’t a pollutant. The world is warming, but not at a catastrophic rate. Shifting to nuclear energy would be optimal in the distant future. For now, we should rely on fossil fuels, rather than trying to ban them. Listen to the full interview in the first hour.
