Would A World Without Oil And Gas Be Better For Your Health And Budget?


Jack Kerfoot, a scientist, energy expert and author of FUELING AMERICA: An Insider's Journey, discusses why climate change is a real danger and why he thinks renewable energy is a safer bet for the planet and your pocketbook than fossil fuels.


"The media's message tends to be polarizing, placing people into the camp of climate change skeptics or advocates," Kerfoot says. "The overwhelming majority of the scientific community believe that greenhouse gases from fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) are causing global warming and climate change. As the global temperature rises, the risk of catastrophic changes to our climate increase over time. Although climate skeptics are willing to take this risk, there are compelling economic and air quality reasons to move from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Climate skeptics and advocates can find common ground to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."


Discussion Questions

1. Do you think the world's consumption of fossil fuels will change dramatically in the next 20 or 30 years?

2. With 23 percent of the electricity generated in the United States coming from renewable energy, what do you think that number will be in five, 10 and 30 years?

3. How would consumers benefit from a change to renewable forms of energy?

4. What would you tell people who think it's impractical to switch from oil and gas to wind and solar power?

5. What has to happen in government and corporations to make renewable energy usage across society more prevalent?

6. Will electric vehicles ever replace internal combustion engine vehicles? Will the oil companies allow this to happen?

7. How do you respond to climate change skeptics who say that government-mandated policies designed to reduce greenhouse gas will cost trillions of dollars a year and bankrupt global economics?


Kerfoot points to evidence showing that along with bringing environmental benefits, renewable energy sources - wind, solar, hydroelectric, biomass, and geothermal - are cheaper forms of electrical power than fossil fuels. He expects the prices of fossil fuels to increase substantially in the near future as demand outpaces supply.


"Technology is continuing to drive down the cost of power from renewable energy, and the future cost for fossil fuels will only increase," Kerfoot says. "The world is facing an energy conundrum, and logic would dictate that world leaders would aggressively push to reduce the use of fossil fuels and increase the use of sustainable, cost-effective renewable energy."
