The thing is, climate change as a myth is pretty ridiculous - it's inaccurate to say. Epstein doesn't say anything about that, just that climate alarmists are wrong about how bad it is. He's saying that whatever bad people argue about is far outweighed by the benefits, and that the philosophy of the alarmists is responsible for even thinking of the benefits as bad (e.g. altering the environment to be different than its natural state is bad). I forget if his speech says all of that, but it is in his book.

Another important thing most people don't care to realize is that climate is in a constant state of change.  The only way to protect ourselves from an ever-changing climate is energy.
