Last week I mentioned that Secretary of Energy Rick Perry heard me speak on “Winning Hearts and Minds” and that we had a good conversation afterwards. Apparently it made an impact.

At a press conference he gave following the event, Perry is quoted as saying:
“I’m a big fan of fossil fuels. In fact there was a really interesting yesterday … at a luncheon where a fellow spoke about, Alex Epstein, spoke about the moral case for fossil fuels. Ihappen to agree with that. I think it’s really important. That said, I’m an ‘all the above’ guy.”
(The quote comes from an article critical of Perry and me, and includes a link to Jody Freeman’s critical “review” of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels. You can find my response to her article here.)
