Teaching Google to love fossil fuels, exposing Al Gore’s Two Convenient Lies in “The National Post”

Last week I spoke about the moral case for fossil fuels as part of the popular Google Talks series. The talk seemed to be very effective. Every questioner said I had clarified their thinking by giving a human flourishing-based framework. For example, one questioner originally from China said, “I really agreed with your point and it’s something I never heard during my whole time living in China,” and asked about the prospects […]

Exposing the truth about Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Sequel”

Al Gore’s new anti-fossil fuels movie, An Inconvenient Sequel, was released on Friday, and is already being praised by the media and climate catastrophists. To help people separate fact from fiction and manipulation, I have been doing a bunch of media appearances recently. Here are some upcoming hits to watch for: The Dennis Prager Show (radio – 7/31 The Glenn Beck Program (radio) – 7/31 Think […]

The Inconvenient Truth About “An Inconvenient Sequel”

Last Sunday I used a lot of fossil fuels to fly to and from an advance screening of Al Gore’s new movie, An Inconvenient Sequel—the follow-up to his 2006 blockbuster “documentary” warning about a fossil-fueled climate apocalypse. Right after the screening I shared some initial thoughts and answered questions on Facebook. I have several media appearances lined up this week to discuss Gore’s film, along with an op-ed […]

New Whitepaper: The Fossil Fuel Industry’s Millennial Problem–and How to Solve It

Today I am releasing a new whitepaper on the challenges the fossil fuel industry faces with its millennial workers. Here’s a summary. Millennial workers are the future of the fossil fuel industry, and they are extremely concerned with the moral meaning of their work. Unfortunately for the industry, these millennials have been exposed to hundreds of hours of claims that their work is immoral because it is destroying the planet. While many companies are ignoring this challenge and others regard it as insurmountable, in my experience it is possible to overcome the “moral case against fossil fuels” and turn non-supporters into supporters.

Discussing the Paris Climate Accord on Fox & Friends

On Sunday morning, I was on Fox & Friends (watch here) to discuss criticism at the G20 summit of President Trump’s decision to leave the Paris Climate Accord. I got very positive feedback (except about the lighting on my end, which I will fix next time). Here is a key part: Host: If you listen to leaders of other countries, they say America’s being left behind, we’re on the sidelines. Would you call it that, […]

I tested my methods. Here’s what happened.

We recently surveyed 735 members of the public who are familiar with my work, but who are not part of the fossil fuel industry, and asked them: “On a scale of 0 (not at all) to 10 (extremely) how would you rate yourself before and after encountering Alex Epstein’s work on fossil fuels?” The results were striking: […]

New Resource: 100 Hearts & Minds eBook

If you follow the energy debate at all, you’ve probably heard some version of the following: “It’s a lost cause.” “People don’t change their minds about fossil fuels.” “People are too stupid/irrational/emotional to understand the case for fossil fuels.” When I started writing about energy over 10 years ago, I wanted to offer people the most effective, […]
