Earth Day Thought Experiment: Do We Really Make Our Environment Worse?

You should be following the work of Alex Epstein. Once a fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute, Epstein left the organization a while back to found the Center for Industrial Progress, an organization embodying his personal approach to advocating for human freedom.

As evidenced in the clip above from Prager University, Alex offers an uplifting presentation of the human impact on our environment. His positive approach contrasts with typical arguments against the green movement by focusing primarily on what we should be for rather than what we should be against.

Alex’s approach to the environmental argument should be utilized as a model for crafting campaign narratives in every area of public policy. Ronald Reagan is remembered for the uplifting vision of America he offered during his campaigns. Such vision inspires people to dream of a better tomorrow.
