Leadership​

Alex Epstein, President and Founder​

Alex Epstein is a philosopher who argues that “human flourishing” should be the guiding principle of industrial and environmental progress.
He founded Center for Industrial Progress (CIP) in 2011 to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement.
Epstein is the author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels (Penguin, 2014), a New York Times bestseller arguing that if we look at the whole picture, human flourishing requires that humanity use more fossil fuels not less. (WSJ review here.) The book has been widely praised as the most persuasive argument ever made for our continuing use of fossil fuels, winning Epstein the “Most Original Thinker of 2014” award from The McLaughlin Group.
Epstein, known for his willingness to debate anyone, anytime, has publicly debated leading environmentalist organizations such Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, and 350.org over the morality of fossil fuel use.

He has made his moral case for fossil fuels at dozens of campuses, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Duke (his alma mater). He has also spoken to employees and leaders at dozens of Fortune 500 energy companies, including ExxonMobil, Chevron, Phillips 66, Valero, Enbridge, and TransCanada.
In his speeches and consulting work he helps companies take his pro-human messaging and use it to neutralize attackers, turn non-supporters into supporters, and turn supporters into champions. One of his major goals is to teach millions of employees in the fossil fuel industry to understand the value of what they do and how to communicate it.

Pimpernel Smith Pimpernel Smith this has your name ALL over it

Biomass is a scam, a highly subsidized one, but well protected as the carbon produced is offset and considered ''clean''. Along with the soot and noxious particles. You also need a lot of gas to burn those pellets. My position is that it's been used as a ruse to hide the inefficiency and limited capability of solar and windfarms to power the grid and deliver the energy density to run modern societies. It's that cynical. You take away biomass from the renewables and there's not much there at all.

certainly not a prevailing opinion or anything like that.
I meant to say he is not in charge so what effect does he have?

Unless he really believed he was heading into another Trump presidency after the old election results.

seems like things are going well in the new year. how's that plan to have gas companies save us coming along?

Very well, as it's finally dawned on the politicians that you need cost effective, reliable natural gas and nuclear to achieve the net zero targets.
