In the video interview below from this month’s State of American Energy event, the Center for Industrial Progress’ Alex Epstein talks about America’s historic energy opportunity and the way producing more energy, including oil and natural gas, is key to a better environment:

“When we produce more energy that means cleaner water.  That even means cleaner air. It means better health.  … Energy improves the environment. So when we’re thinking about energy there’s nothing to apologize for, nothing to be afraid of. The only thing to be afraid of, the only risk, is in not producing energy.”
