New Resource: the Energy Clarity series
Everyone today, even if they grow up in a fossil fuel-friendly area like Houston, receives at least 200 hours of miseducation about energy issues. The media, the education system, and many of our political and intellectual leaders present a biased, sloppy picture of our energy alternatives.
I believe everyone needs–and deserves–an energy education that looks carefully and without bias at the full context of our energy choices. Thatís why Iíve recently launched a new email series,†Energy Clarity.†Every†Sunday†youíll receive an email on some crucial energy or environmental question, from how long oil resources will last to how much impact CO2 has on global temperatures.
And although the series contains some of our most valuable content, you donít have to pay a thing: unlike wind and solar, it really is free and forever. (To be exact, itís 28 emails and growing.)
Live in Midland: An Evening with Alex Epstein
I have two speeches tomorrow in Midland, Texas, in the heart of the incredible outpouring of energy thatís taking place in the Permian Basin. Iím excited to be speaking to the people making that happen and teaching them to understand and communicate the value of what theyíre doing.
The first event is a luncheon hosted by the Permian Basin Petroleum Association, where Iím going to talk to industry members about the enormous challenges they face in trying to win hearts and minds–and how to overcome those challenges.
In the evening, the Wagner NoŽl Performing Arts Center will be featuring ďAn Evening with Alex Epstein,Ē hosted by the PBPA and a group called Start the Conversation.
This event is†free and open to the public†(though you do have to†pre-register online). If youíre in the area, I hope youíll come–and bring your friends and family.
