The Moral Case For Fossil Fuels was his first book.

Now he's making the case that humanity needs to use more of it, not less.

New York Times bestselling author, philosopher, and energy expert Alex Epstein will be on the Casper College campus on Friday, December 1st at 6 pm to speak on “Fossil Future: Why Global Human Flourishing Requires More Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas — Not Less.”

Epstein argues that:

‘human flourishing’ should be the guiding principle of energy and environmental progress.”

Epstein is also the founder and CEO of the Center for Industrial Progress, a for-profit think tank.

According to CIPs website, Epstein founded the organization “ …to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement.”



He has been featured hundreds of times on TV, radio, and print, including Rolling Stone and Fox News.

The Penguin Random House website noted that:

for over a decade, Epstein has predicted that any negative impacts of fossil fuel use on our climate will be outweighed by the unique benefits of fossil fuels to human flourishing — including their unrivaled ability to provide low-cost, reliable energy to billions of people around the world, especially the world’s poorest people.

And contrary to what we hear from ‘media experts’ about today’s ‘renewable revolution’ and ‘climate emergency,’ reality has proven Epstein right.

In his book “Fossil Future,” Epstein draws on the latest data and new insights to challenge everything most people thought they knew about the future of energy.

A limited number of “Fossil Future” will be given to the audience and signed by Epstein immediately following the event.

Epstein’s presentation is free and open to the public.

Alex Epstein will be on the Casper College campus on Friday, December 1st at 6 pm in The Wheeler Concert Hall, located in the Music Building.
