Calvin Beisner, Cornwall Energy Alliance: One of the greatest concerns is that the demand to reduce allegedly dangerous, man-made global warming by reducing carbon dioxide emissions would trap the world’s poorest 2.9 billion people—about 1.3 billion of whom still use wood, coal, charcoal, and dung on open fires as their primary cooking and heating fuels and about 1.9 billion of whom lack all access to electricity—in extreme poverty and high rates of disease and premature death.
