Every week The Yaron Brook Show reviews significant headlines that impact freedom in various forms. Commenting from a philosophical view that man's greatest value is self, the Show brings unique perspective to the conversation, always ending the show with a positive sense of life. In this episode, Don Watkins will stand in for Yaron as guest host.
Attorneys General from 15 states are investigating Exxon Mobil for allegedly lying about the risks of “climate change.” The Competitive Enterprise Institute, a Washington free market think tank, became entangled in the investigation when the group received a subpoena seeking information about its funding and activities going back two decades. Many in government and in the environmental movement call this a proper fraud investigation. Guest host Steve Simpson, ARI’s Director of Legal Studies, calls it an inquisition. He analyzes the investigation and its implications for free speech from a legal and moral standpoint and tells listeners what they can do to defend free speech. Guests include Sam Kazman, general counsel of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, Alex Epstein, author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, and Walter Olson, Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute.
