The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels

A Policy@McCombs Event

At this Policy@Mccombs Alex Epstein will discuss his New York Times bestseller, The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels (Penguin, 2014). The book argues that if we look at the whole picture, human flourishing requires that humanity use more fossil fuels not less. The book has been widely praised as the most persuasive argument ever made for our continuing use of fossil fuels, winning Epstein the “Most Original Thinker of 2014” award from The McLaughlin Group.

Alex Epstein is a philosopher who argues that “human flourishing” should be the guiding principle of industrial and environmental progress. He founded Center for Industrial Progress (CIP) in 2011 to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement.
