Alex Epstein: ‘Pope’s Encyclical is an Immense Pile of Filth’


Alex Epstein wrote the book, The Moral case for Fossil Fuels, reviewed HERE

Ezra Levant was pleased to be able to interview him for at this year’s IdeaCity in Toronto.



Epstein quotes a tweet by the pope:

Pope’s Tweet


Alex Epstein retorts:

“the Pope’s encyclical is an immense pile of filth.”


Epstein and  Levant agree that the communists liked industry, liked factories but said they wanted to own the factories, whilst today’s progressives don’t want the factories. The Shrill want to go back to living in a pre-industrial era.
