CP Mid-week Fix: The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels with Alex Epstein

Alex Epstein founded the Center for Industrial Progress (CIP) in 2011 to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement. Epstein is the author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels (Penguin, 2014), a New York Times bestseller arguing that if we look at the whole picture, human flourishing requires that humanity use more fossil fuels not less. (WSJ review here.) The book won Epstein the “Most Original Thinker of 2014” award from The McLaughlin Group. Epstein has publicly debated leading environmentalist organizations such Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, and as well as spoken on dozens of college campuses, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Duke (his alma mater). He has also spoken to employees and leaders at dozens of Fortune 500 energy companies, including ExxonMobil, Chevron, Phillips 66, Valero, Enbridge, and TransCanada.
