I can't imagine anyone arguing the fabulous energy density of liquid fuels,but as to climate change,the argument is,that we can't afford to burn it;and we need to transition away from internal combustion as fast as we can.
If you want to set aside fossil fuels for mining and agribusiness it's fine by me.
For the exception of aircraft,most other mobility issues can be handled without it.
