The Fresno County Economic Development Corporation invites you to attend the Energy Summit 2017. The Energy Summit will serve as an educational platform with two panels to discuss the latest energy industry advancements and the impact it presents for our local economy. Regional and national industry professionals from the renewable energy, petroleum and utility sectors will share insight on current developments throughout the region, future industry advancements, and the potential and challenges facing the energy industry.
Alex Epstein is the author of the New York Times best-selling book The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels and an expert on energy and industrial policy. Called “most original thinker of the year” by political commentator John McLaughlin, he champions the use of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas and has changed the way thousands of people think about energy. He has risen to prominence as the nation’s leading free-market energy debater, promoting a philosophy that is “antipollution but pro-development.” He believes that fossil fuels are about maximizing human progress and improving people’s lives, and he challenges many popularly held ideas about energy, industry, and the environment, including the big picture benefits (and costs) of fossil fuels and nuclear power.
