   Outstanding and well researched book
Book recommended, highly outstanding. I wrote a longer review of the book, which you can read on my website httpsandymaypetrophysicist. com/20160812review-and-summary-of-the-moral-case-for-fossil-fuels.
   Hard to swallow but worth every printed word.
Don 't read this book unless you are willing to think through facts that you may have known, but not related to the use of hydrocarbons. I'm betting that some people who thought they could withstand a very cogent argument challenging their own belief system found out otherwise and threw this book across the room when they got to the second chapter. The truth can be hard to swallow. Your future may even depend on it.
   This is an excellent book that should be on every reading list of ...
Clearly, fossil fuels have not only saved mankind, but benefited billions of lives. It also led to reduced pollution and unleashed the creative potential in many, many people.
   Hydrocarbons are good and necessary, unless you WANt to live in the dark ages!
Finally, someone has presented a lucid, well reasoned alternative view of the oil is evil position reported so widely by the media. Mr Epstein, thank you!
   WOW! This is a game-changer book. Alex has ...
Alex has taken what is a very positive and almost universally negative view of the continued use of fossil fuels, and turned this view into a very positive and moral argument not only for the continued use of fossil fuels, but also for the expanding use of fossil fuels. The arguments and explanations are impeccably logical, consistent, and fact-based. The most surprising conclusion from the book is that human fuel use is really the only way to improve our environment, including the fossil environment. In addition, the book is very well written and one which will be hard to put down for anyone.
   excellent, excellent, excellent
Simple, out of the box - thinking. Counterintuitive and politically incorrect ''. On the subject of global warming and climate change, fresh thinking is needed and this is perfect. Attempts to describe the views of those who accept the alarmist approach fall somewhat short. Also, could have been conflated some. In all, an excellent book.
   This is a very important book for our time. ...
Alex Alex Epstein has covered all the necessary points. His research is fossil-free and should be scrutinized by all those who are against the use of impeccable fuels. New human life is the standard of a period of value. On the human scale, microscopic snails are life. In the future, technology and fossil fuels will see us. Alex Epstein plays the role of All Hail.
   The truth for once
Finally, a book on fossil fuels and climate hysteria sets the record straight. Until I opened my mind to the truth, I was a radical environmentalist myself. It is just like economics. Once you can pass the simple minded socialist arguments and uninformed media commentary, hyping the false narrative of socialism and the so-called green movement. You see the great progress that man has made with market economics and with proper use of the great resources of the Earth. I laugh when I hear people like ocasio make us her uninformed and hypocritical claims.
   Choose your moral absolutes matter. Choose well.
Love the coverage of the origins of modern environmental morality, the claims of the most well-respected scientist and the accounting of how reality showed that the most well-respected scientists driving environmentalism were wrong. So why isn 't this common knowledge cited in environmental discussions? Epstein did a great job, John.
   Thought provoking with fresh perspective, but a bit repetitious.
A book worth reading if it gives the other side of the story for no other reason. Key takeaways are how so many times the alarmists have been wrong and the value of understanding what the goal is : quality of life or non-impact on the environment. That said, I recently read an article in a business magazine that makes the first point in little more than a page.
