Oil workers are not the only people who will lose their jobs if we try to replace fossil fuels with so-called “green energy.” Coal miners, pipe layers, natural gas workers and people in related industries will also suffer. But it will go much deeper than that.

Manufacturing is energy intensive. That means low-cost, reliable energy is essential to manufacturing and blue-collar jobs.
