Alex Epstein: Trump ‘has had probably the best energy & env policies of any president in last 60 years’ — But ‘he did virtually nothing to explain & defend the virtues of his policies’ in debate with Biden

Quick comment on the debate
Like many people, I found last night’s debate excruciating to watch for myriad reasons.
But I want to focus on energy, as that’s my specialty. President Trump, with whom I disagree on many, many things, has had probably the best energy and environmental policies of any president in the last 60 years.
Yet in last night’s debate he did virtually nothing to explain and defend the virtues of his policies. And he had no coherent answer to the climate questions that were guaranteed to come up.
When the President of the United States cannot champion and defend his own good energy policies it makes those policies as such look disreputable.
If anyone on this [email] list is close to the administration, I implore you to share EnergyTalkingPoints.com with them. I and others have tried so far, obviously without success. But sometimes a disappointing debate performance is a wake-up call to prepare differently—and better.
