Challenging Bill McKibben and the Green Establishment: The Environmental Case for Fossil Fuels

Last week Alex Epstein from the Center for Industrial Progress got to debate the head of warmist activist organisation350.org, environmentalist Bill McKibben, who’s been called “the world's most powerful opponent of fossil fuels.”

The debate was on fossil fuels.

Given that McKibben is on an anti-fossil-fuel rampage as I write this (see http://math.350.org), and he other environmentalist leaders are using Hurricane Sandy as a pretext for policies that would cause far more permanent blackouts, there’s never been a better time to challenge their fundamentals.

Check out these 2-3 minute clips from debate wherein Epstein does just that:

  1. In a cathartic week for the BBC, its list of 28 so-called scientific experts, whom they used to justify their one-side propaganda on the issue for years, has been revealed: http://www.bishop-hill.net/blog/2012/11/12/bbc-climate-28-revealed.html

    Looks like all but 6 are political lobbyists, principally for the warmist side.
