Many in the United States who criticized the NEPD Group's report, and many others who disapprove of energy policies that show any favorability to the fossil fuels industry, base their objections on one major factor: the environment. Fossil fuels have been linked to various types of environmental degradation, such as air and water pollution and destruction of land and natural habitats. Perhaps most troubling to those concerned about the environmental impact of fossil fuels is the fact that scientific evidence has linked the use of fossil fuels for energy to a change in the climate of the entire Earth.
