The author summarizes the environmental issues concerning fossil fuels that are indispensable for economic progress but remain the cause of climate change. The author urges the major emerging energy producers to move toward an Asian Oil and Gas Community. He believes that the challenge is to look for alternative nonpolluting sources of energy that can be harnessed at low cost to the causes of poverty eradication. He also notes that in Asia, oil and gas can play the role that coal and steel played in the unification of Europe.
