This week’s Power Hour features the wide-ranging Q&A from a recent speech Alex Epstein gave at Lafayette College--a speech that was supposed to be a debate with Michael Mann.

Some of the many topics covered include:

  • Does the moral case for fossil fuels uncritically assume that progress is good?
  • Do people really choose fossil fuel energy?
  • Can the dominance of fossil fuels be explained by a lack of research into other sources of energy production?
  • Climate-related damages beyond climate-related deaths.
  • Energy poverty in the US
  • The value of fossil fuel-based materials
  • The “abuse-use fallacy”
  • Why the anti-fossil fuel movement is anti-nuclear.
  • The “delicate nurturer” vs. “wild potential” view of Earth
  • What we can learn from hunter-gatherers
  • The psychological motivation for being anti-human
  • Electric cars
  • Does Alex have a favorite fossil fuel?
