“Today’s prices and the shortages that lead to them are a function of the global anti-fossil fuel movement successfully, for the last 15 years, opposing fossil fuel investment, fossil fuel production, fossil fuel refining, and fossil fuel transportation” according to Alex Epstein.
In a recent interview with Natalie Brunell on Hard Money, Epstein identified the issue saying, “The basic problem is that we’ve artificially restricted the supply of fossil fuels by restricting fossil fuel investment, fossil fuel production, fossil fuel refining, fossil fuel transportation”. In his book “Fossil Future” he explains that instead of causing a climate catastrophe, fossil fuels help us flourish – and abandoning them now would lead to genuine human catastrophe.
Scott Pruitt, former head of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency praised “Fossil Future” saying: “Stepping in once again to the oftentimes divisive, but very consequential, energy and climate conversation is Alex Epstein’s “Fossil Future”, arguing that fossil fuels not only have a place in our global tomorrows, but are a necessity to human flourishing. We need more, not less, voices in the climate marketplace, capable of thoughtful engagement and critical analysis. Alex proffers both in Fossil Future and it is my hope that the amalgamation of his research, data, analysis, and rhetoric will yield a more constructive conversation about our energy and climate choices.”
