Is the green agenda “anti-human”?
Alex Epstein, president and founder of the Center for Industrial Progress and author of "The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels," thinks so, and he sits down with Glenn Beck to tell him exactly why.
Beck brings up a recent story concerning far-left climate activists who want to eliminate rice in order to save the world.
“We’re also, now, having these zealots take on our foods,” Beck says, “meat, rice — this is immoral.”
Beck continues, “How many people will starve without rice?”
Epstein believes this is a perfect example of how anti-human the far-left climate change movement is.
He asks, “What is your goal with respect to Earth? Is it one: to advance human flourishing on Earth? Or two: Is it to eliminate human impact on Earth?”
Epstein says the “anti-rice goal is eliminating human impact on Earth.”
He believes this is because “from a human perspective, an Earth with rice is a better Earth” and “an Earth with fossil fuels is a better Earth.”
He calls this a “pro-human environmental philosophy.”
The two discuss how illogical electric vehicles are, despite the push by Biden and governors like Newsom to replace cars that run on fossil fuels.
“What’s happening,” Epstein explains, “is the worst crackpot ideas are being dictated.”
He warns, “These people aren’t only dumb, but they’re anti-human at the core.”
