Mikko Paunio, MD, MHS, specialist in public health and epidemiology: Efforts by extreme environmentalists will kill millions in poor countries. Domestic combustion of solid (bio)fuels is by far the number one global pollution problem, attributable to indoor air pollution (IAP). The so called 'energy ladder' was introduced to understand how deaths from IAP might be prevented. The energy ladder seeks to reproduce the experience of rich countries, where households moved away from biofuels and connected to electric grids or district heating systems, solving the IAP problem for good. Extreme environmental organizations resist improving the lives of poorer people because it would increase use of fossil fuels and their carbon footprint.
