(CNSNews.com) – We have a “moral imperative” to burn carbon dioxide-emitting fossil fuels because the energy they provide is a “liberator” of humanity, says Dr. John Christy, a climatologist and director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama, Huntsville. “We are not morally bad people for taking carbon and turning it into the energy that offers life to humanity in a world that would otherwise be brutal,” Christy wrote in a recent oped. "On the contrary, we are good people for doing so."

Morano on Obama's EPA 'Climate' Plan: 'They are selling us a bill of goods. Even if you believed it, this is a nonsensical plan when it comes to climate with a lot of economic pain.'
'NASA's former lead global warming scientist James Hansen came and said this plan is 'practically worthless' and he said 'you've got to be kidding me'. Obama's own EPA chief admitted it would have no impact on global temperature let alone impacts on global CO2 levels. It's pure symbolism.'
Dr. Craig D. Idso, Chairman - Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change: 'President Obama's Clean Power Plan is built upon a pack of lies. This I know because for the past two decades I have read and published reviews of literally thousands of peer-reviewed scientific papers that show rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations have little impact on global climate.'
'For decades, the United States increased the amount of carbon pumped into the atmosphere each successive year. But recently emissions have begun to decline, dropping about 11 percent between 2007 and 2013...the root of the decline can be found in the Great Recession of 2007.'
