Alex Epstein – The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels

Alex has a background in philosophy and has done the critical thinking necessary to evaluate why we need to use fossil fuels. ” You’ve heard that our addiction to fossil fuels is destroying our planet and our lives. Yet by every measure of human well-being life has been getting better and better. This book explains why humanity’s use of fossil fuels is actually a healthy, moral choice. ”

I am encouraging everyone to at least read the first chapter (available for free here

If you are interested in hearing my recent interview with Alex, you can listen here

I wish I could have gone into more detail about the economics of wind energy and the tactics used by the wind industry, where they come in like a stealth bomber, enlisting landowners/farmers to host turbines,  promising easy money and of course the invigorating idea that we are helping the planet by reducing the use of fossil fuels and cleaning up our air.  None of which they can provide real world data to back those claims.

In any case thank you Alex for taking an interest  in a  Rural grubby’s plight with Industrial wind development.
