Humanity Unbound: How Fossil Fuels Saved Humanity from Nature and Nature from Humanity

What most people completely ignore is that some time in the early 19th-century humanity saw peak wood. Up until that time, entire regions big like countries were completely deforested as the wood was needed for energy. Coal saved our forests. We have slowly re-forested ever since. Oil and Gas further improved not only the human condition but also nature. Just take a look at developed countries with a lot of O&G consumption ad those where animal dung still serves as combustible. Where is nature better? Hydrocarbons saved humans, and they saved the planet.
