Alex Epstein
Alex Epstein is a philosopher who argues “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,” a New York Times bestseller arguing that if we look at the whole picture, human flourishing requires humanity use more fossil fuels, not less. The book has been widely praised as the most persuasive argument ever made for our continuing use of fossil fuels, winning Epstein the 2014 Most Original Thinker Award from The McLaughlin Group.
