On August 21st, Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress gave the opening keynote at the American Coal Council conference.

I was particularly impressed with his discussion of how to make the positive case for coal, particularly why merely attacking the anti-industry environmentalist critics of coal is insufficient and unpersuasive. The same, obviously, applies to any kind of activism: merely attacking your opponents doesn’t change the minds of critics.

I’ll be interviewing Alex on this very topic — of how the energy industry improves our lives — on the September 12th episode of Philosophy in Action Radio. I hope that you’ll tune in!
