Alex Epstein – The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels
“When we discuss fossil fuels we don’t discuss it in a very carful and morally responsible way.” This is the perspective of author and moral philosopher Alex Epstein. Alex, who joined us in our contrarians pod in 2015 came to the audience with a very different perspective on fossil fuels. He believes that our end goal should be to maximize our well-being and weight the risks and the benefits between using fossil fuels. Watch this talk and hear a different side of the story that explains some of the risk factors between not using fossil fuels and how our climate might be becoming more dangerous.
