This paper shows that the world faces an energy crisis but that the crisis is not due to the depletion of fossil fuels. It is a man-made crisis. The crisis is being caused by environmentalist and other statist policies around the globe.

It states that the motivation for the restrictive policies stems from the morality of self-sacrifice, while the morality of rational self-interest provides the basis for abolishing the controls.
