In this episode of “Exploring Minds”, Michele Carroll and Alex Epstein discuss his book “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels”. Alex breaks down the importance of energy, our current energy source options, and how he thinks about climate change.
Alex Epstein is a philosopher who argues that “human flourishing” should be the guiding principle of industrial and environmental progress. He 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. Alex has been featured hundreds of times on TV, radio, and in print, including Rolling Stone, the New York Times, and Fox News. You can sign up for his newsletter at http://alexepsteinlist.com.
