Alex Epstein

Founder, Center for Industrial Progress Author, Fossil Fuels Improve the Planet

Alex Epstein Biography

Alex Epstein, energy expert and founder of the Center for Industrial Progress, is one of the world’s most innovative champions of fossil fuels. In an energy debate where fossil fuels are often condemned as the dirty energy of the past, Epstein argues that they are the life-giving energy of the future — and says that we should celebrate, not demonize, the industry that creates them.

A philosopher by training, Alex challenges many of our era’s popular notions about energy, industry, and environment, routinely engaging environmentalists in open debate over the big picture benefits of fossil fuels. His work has garnered both heavy praise from supporters and fierce opposition from adversaries, and changed the way thousands think about energy.

Alex is the author of Fossil Fuels Improve the Planet. His new book, The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, builds on his acclaimed essay of the same name, which circulated among hundreds of energy industry Presidents and CEOs in 2013.

His writings on energy have been published in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Investor’s Business Daily, among hundreds of other publications. His views have been covered in The New York Times and Rolling Stone. A highly sought-after speaker, he has spoken on the economic and environmental benefits of fossil fuels at dozens of universities, including Stanford, Duke, Rice, and UCLA, appearing more than twenty times in the past year. He has defended fossil fuel energy in debates against Greenpeace,, and the Sierra Club.

Alex’s confrontations with environmentalist leaders like Bill McKibben and his track record of turning fossil fuel skeptics into fossil fuel supporters has made him one of the top speakers and communications consultants in the fossil fuel industry. His keynote appearances in front of industry audiences have inspired and galvanized everyone from top executives to workers in the field.
