Alex Epstein on Fox with John Stossel: Epstein is president of the Center for Industrial Progress: 'The fossil fuel industry is not taking a safe climate and making it dangerous. They are taking a dangerous climate and making it safe. Anyone who contradicts me should try to go outside right now (in brutal cold) and live naturally in harmony with nature.'
'It's not noble to use less energy, that is like saying its noble to have less money. No. You might misuse energy, you might be inefficient -- but more is always better because energy has the capacity to be productive.'
'I admire the natural gas industry, and I admire the oil industry and the coal industry because this is the only industry in the world that produces cheap plentiful reliable energy on a global scale. So these are the guys that are allowing us to be comfortable in a studio when its freezing outside, they make it possible for us to have clean water, to do what we want in life, to have time to do scientific research. Its amazing. So that is why i have a pin here that says 'I Love Fossil Fuels.'
