What does it tell you about environmentalism that it needs the Pope to prop up its campaign against capitalism and human achievement on earth?
Science and Technology
Humans thrive by improving technology, not abandoning it.
It’s hard to think rationally when animals tug at our heartstrings.
The Exxon CEO is a rare exception, with the courage to defend his company’s moral right to pursue its own interest: profitable production of fossil fuels.
The great crime of government regulation is that it suffocates and prevents good and great things from happening, things that we’ll never know about — because they never get a chance to happen.
There’s a lot more at stake in Times Square than the lights.
Environmentalism is, at its core, a religious fanaticism against technology, industry and progress.
What the religion of environmentalism really opposes is man’s nature, i.e., the fact that man must reshape the earth in order to survive.
The idea that you can tell whether a scientist — or anybody else — is “objective” by who is financing that scientist’s research is nonsense.
Just as religious altruism pits man’s fundamental nature against him by demanding he be a self-sacrificial animal for God, so environmentalist altruism pits man’s fundamental nature against him by demanding he be a self-sacrificial animal for Earth.
Climate change predictions have been wrong for decades because they are not based on science but on government sponsored “research.”
The federal government cannot stand the idea that the Internet economy was a successful instance of (in today’s context) relatively unhampered market capitalism.
The ultimate test of any theoretical model is not how loudly it is proclaimed but how well it fits the facts.
Based on meticulous research and backed up with solid facts, Epstein makes the case that fossil fuels—coal, oil, and natural gas—have tremendous positive impact on human life.
Alex Epstein’s book “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels” documents the rapidly shrinking number of human beings killed by storms, floods and other climate events thanks largely to ever-growing industry, fueled mainly by oil, natural gas and coal.
Mankind’s use of fossil fuels is supremely virtuous — because human life is the standard of value, and because using fossil fuels transforms our environment to make it wonderful for human life.
Environmentalists like Naomi Klein are intentionally unclear and misleading about the fossil fuel industry and capitalism, because it serves their purpose of taking away our freedom to live our lives and run our businesses the way we choose.
Instead of environmental regulations that actually save lives, we pay to subsidize politicians’ cronies and pet projects,
