Fueling the Fire

The latest offering from Prager University is a reflection on the reality that fossil fuels have been a boon to mankind and will continue to provide for most of our energy needs for the foreseeable future:

In honor of Earth Day, this week's video course features Alex Epstein, author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels.

He demonstrates how technology -- and fossil fuels in particular -- have made the planet safer, cleaner, and more habitable.
