Video: Prager U on the green energy source liberals love to overlook

With Earth Day nearly upon us, wouldn’t it be great if someone discovered a miraculous source of energy that was not only cheap, abundant, and reliable, but could also make our air and water cleaner and our communities safer?

In the video that follows, Alex Epstein, founder of the Center for Industrial Progress, reveals that such an energy source does indeed exist. In fact, we use it every day. It is called fossil fuels.

Despite what most environmentalists would have us believe, fossil fuels have made our lives more livable, not less. Thanks to coal, oil, and natural gas, the developed world has routine access to clean water, better sanitation, and yes, cleaner air.
