Literally everything that has been manufactured was in some way made by/with fossil fuels. Cheaper fossil fuels will boost the economy, provide more jobs, put more money in our pockets...

We use a hell of a lot more fossil fuels today than we did back in the 1970's and our air and water is much cleaner today

The train I drive burns fuel oil although the company is toying around with LNG powered units.

I use diesel in my P/U and I burn all my trash.

I like my air and water clean, thanks.
