Podcast: Energy, climate, and national security
The world is being shaken by a collision of energy needs, climate change, and clashes between nations in a time of global crisis — made much worse by Russia’s all-out invasion of Ukraine. Roaring inflation has shocked consumers, the Biden Administration, and other governments around the world.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Daniel Yergin joins this episode to discuss the rapidly growing challenges of national security, as well as opportunities for common ground. Yergin is one of the world’s foremost experts on energy, international politics and economics. This episode also includes an examination of the reasons behind President Biden’s latest visit to Saudi Arabia, Europe’s rapidly growing dependence on U.S. oil and natural gas, and the changing threats to the West from Russia and China.
