This week I had the opportunity to discuss President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord with radio host Mike Slater. As I explain in the interview, the Paris Climate Accord is a deadly non-solution to a non-problem:
- The Accord would have robbed millions of access to energy, including the energy that allows us to cope with a naturally dangerous climate
- It would have done nothing to avoid the climate catastrophe that supporters think fossil fuels are creating
- And there is no evidence that the CO2 impact is catastrophic
The interview contains much more, including these kind words from Slater:
“I am just extremely impressed with what you’ve built over these last few years… Really impressed that you’ve gone out so much, and spoken, and spread this message, and done these debates with these high level environmentalists. You’ve done a wonderful job.”

Dave Rubin on the moral case for fossil fuels
Interviewer Dave Rubin was recently asked about his views on climate change, and spent a big part of his answer recommending that people watch “a really interesting conversation I had with Alex Epstein from the Center for Industrial Progress, who wrote a book called The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels that I keep right there on my shelf.”
After pointing out that he received and continues to receive a ton of hate mail about my appearance on his show, Dave points out that I recorded a follow up video did where I responded to the top 100 YouTube comments about our interview. You can view that video here,
and my original interview with Dave Rubin here.
The fastest way to promote the moral case for fossil fuels
One of the fastest ways you can help spread the word about the moral case for fossil fuels is to create a short video testimonial, telling the world how these ideas have impacted you.
We’ve now made this easier than ever. Just visit our video testimonial page and you can record your thoughts right from your phone or computer.

We are always striving to upgrade our ability to change hearts and minds. If you’ve followed any of my work I would be grateful if you’d give five minutes of your time to fill out a brief survey. It will be extremely valuable in helping us improve our work. (And thanks if you filled it out earlier.)

This program contains one of my favorite debates along with some “cheat sheets” to help you make the moral case for fossil fuels in your professional and personal life more easily than you thought possible. You can have access to the entire program right now. By the end of the session you and your team will:
