Epstein: Climate Change Concern Due to ‘Human Racism’

Epstein: Climate Change Concern Due to ‘Human Racism’ March 12, 2014

Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress was on a panel discussion at CPAC about climate change and gave an absolutely bizarre diatribe claiming that concern about climate change is the result of “human racism,” which he defines as the idea that anything “man-made” must be bad.

Epstein added that if you are worried about man-made climate change, you are displaying “a prejudice against the man-made” or as he likes to put it, “human racism.”

He went on to present the straw-man argument that people who are concerned about climate change are against development and ignore the benefits of industrial advances. While greenhouse gasses might warm the planet “a little bit, and warm is generally nice,” he said, the “most important effect of fossil fuels” is to ensure that people like him can move to “the best climate we can,” in his case Southern California.

Um. What?
