The author of "The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels," Alex Epstein, joined Glenn Beck on the Think Tank to discuss how Al Gore's global crusade to combat climate change is only about making Al Gore richer and not about saving the environment.
"The reason why I say he should be removed from the conversation is that he is not trying to give us the full picture," said Epstein.
"It's a completely biased, manipulative, and for that matter, self-serving picture," and sells only to a certain group of people who crave status more than anything, according to Epstein. "People want status often, and this is an easy path to status. All you have to do is say a meaningless statement like, 'I believe in climate change. I'm not a denier.' And that confers upon you a certain superiority."
Epstein went on to debunk several of Gore's key claims in his follow up film, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" where Gore claims he was even more right about climate change than he thought.
Epstein is also the president of the Center for Industrial Progress.
