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 for promoting the moral case for fossil fuels there. The experience …

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.

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 reviewing the film. I’ll send all the links on …

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. The key to turning non-supporters into supporters is to reframe moral …
