Memorial Day Weekend: Get Going!

By Robert Bradley Jr. -- May 22, 2020

Get happy. Summer beckons. Not only bike and hike but also drive to a better environment–your self-selected environment.


The automobile is environmentalism-on-wheels. The open road is freedom to escape the concrete for the great beyond. Mountains, rivers, hills, forests, even beautiful green golf courses–it is all a drive away. 

Don’t worry about the anti-travel crowd like the folks at Climate Progress who fret about emissions of the trace green gas, carbon dioxide. Just forget the spin and go for a spin!


Each year, MasterResource celebrates the beginning of the peak-driving season knowing that our free-market philosophy is about energy abundance and affordability and reliability. And there is little to apologize for. When is the last time you got a bad tank of gasoline, anyway?

Oil, gas, and coal have been and continue to be technologically transformed into super-clean energy resources. Carbon-based energies are growing more abundant, not less. And energy/climate alarmism is losing steam on all fronts (except the shouting).

The real energy sustainability problem is statism, not free consumer choice. As Matt Ridley concluded: “There is little doubt that the damage being done by climate-change policies currently exceeds the damage being done by climate change.” As Alex Epstein is telling each one of us to tell our neighbors: I Love Fossil Fuels. So celebrate!
