The 2020 presidential election is looking to have a big impact on energy policy in the United States. 

When it comes to energy and the environment and being able to understand both the positive and negative effects, it is important to look at the data in an objective manner.  And this is exactly where this week's guest comes in. 

Alex Epstein is a philosopher who argues that “human flourishing” should be the guiding principle of industrial and environmental progress.

He founded the Center for Industrial Progress in 2011 to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement.

Alex is the author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, a New York Times bestseller who argues that if we look at the big picture, human flourishing requires that we 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.

Most recently, Alex created the website EnergyTalkingPoints.com to provide true, powerful, and succinct talking points on this year's most important energy, environmental, and climate issues.
