even aside from the marginal benefits to intermittent renewables, methane flaring, etc, the truly remarkable thing is that so many allegedly serious people have been conditioned to think that energy consumption is bad.

energy consumption is synonymous with human flourishing.
i.e. not "GDP Growth" or other meaningless number-go-up, "let's measure the flow rather than the flow-over-the-stock because we don't know what a return is or how capital works" metrics ...

... that is, every conceivable non-economic measure of the avoidance of human suffering.
if you are against energy consumption, you either haven't ever really thought about it because it's what the cool kids say and you want the cool kids to like you, or you hate humanity.

there is no other option, I'm afraid.
