    Peter Thiel challenges Alex Epstein on Fossil Future

    From Alex Epstein: "Recently I was having dinner with Peter Thiel (the billionaire investor/entrepreneur who founded PayPal and Palantir) and he raised some interesting challenges to my book Fossil Future (which he has enthusiastically endorsed). I suggested, 'Let’s record a discussion where you give me all your challenges to Fossil Future and I try to answer them.' Peter loved the idea, so we made it happen—recording a 90-minute discussion at his office in West Hollywood."

    Wrestling legend Ben Askren on how Fossil Future impacted his thinking

    Wrestling legend Ben Askren on how Fossil Future impacted his thinking

    On this special episode of Power Hour to celebrate Fossil Future's launch week, I'm joined by wrestling legend and former MMA superstar Ben Askren. When Ben expressed interest in Fossil future on Twitter, I sent him an advance copy—which he read in full, and loved.

    I asked Ben to come on the show to describe how the book impacted his thinking. I also asked Ben, known as one of the great innovators in modern wrestling, about the keys to his innovativeness—keys that apply to virtually any field.

    This episode was both a thrill for me and a little surreal since as a longtime Jiu-Jitsu practitioner I've admired Askren from afar for many years. The fact that he responded to Fossil Future so positively is further confirmation to me that the framework and argument of this book are going to impact a lot of people's thinking for the better.

    CA candidate for governor Michael Shellenberger on the governor's race, energy, and Fossil Future

    On this special episode of Power Hour to celebrate Fossil Future's launch week, I'm joined by California candidate for governor Michael Shellenberger--whom I am enthusiastically supporting, intellectually and financially.
    We ended up spending most of the time talking about the energy landscape, including where Fossil Future fits in. But I made sure that we talked about Mike's campaign and why it is worth supporting. I've contributed $5000, an unprecedented amount for me.

Not LAME!

Always on point. Cogent and pragmatic. I cannot wrap my head around the types who believe our world is going to end and, to avoid this, we must re-harmonize our spirit animals with nature and then return humanity to around the time that our nation was founded. I can only think of two explanations:

1) It’s a social contagion transferred by the type of self-loathing that incubates rapidly through social media. Anyone under 25 and/or lacks critical thinking skills is highly vulnerable.

2) Climate change is now religion. The Green Fascism Gospel. It has all the tell tale signs, yet with zero upside.
