FWA’s Fireside Chat with Dan Yergin: The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations

graphicFor more than a century, energy has been intertwined with security and geopolitics. Now, more than ever before the nexus of its availability, access and flows will shape the future.

The United States surged ahead of Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s number one producer of both oil and gas, upending world energy markets and resetting global geopolitics. How did this happen?

Dan Yergin, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations, can explain!

So come hear from Dan Yergin, himself, on September 24th as he brings his full intellectual weight to bear on the energy revolution that is now unfolding and the great “new power rivalry” that is making our world a more dangerous place.

Join us to gain a better understanding around:

  • How the 21st century energy position of the U.S. has undergone a revolution – the shale revolution – that has changed its standing in the world. And how then did the coronavirus send shale spiraling into crisis, and will it recover?
  • How the coronavirus changed the energy markets and the future roles of the Big Three-the U.S., Saudi Arabia, and Russia-that now dominate world oil. When will oil consumption hit the high point and begin to decline?
  • How the familiar ecosystem of oil and autos is now being challenged by “the New Mobility revolution”.
  • How will the coronavirus and COVID-19 change both energy and geopolitics? Will it hasten or slow the “energy transition”?
  • What is “energy transition”? What does it mean to the developing world? Will the energy transition leave the Middle East behind? What are the ramifications to that region? Will the trillions of dollars be there to fund the energy transition after all the costs of the coronavirus crisis are added up?
  • How climate concerns are reshaping the map of energy, and how much-discussed “energy transition” from fossil fuels to renewables may actually play out.
  • What the energy landscape will look like as the path to a lower carbon world will be defining challenges in the decades ahead.
  • Will the “office of the future” end up being at home? Will people commute less on public transportation?
  • How and why new cold wars are developing between the U.S. on one hand, and Russia and China on the other, and energy’s role in them.
  • How swiftly the overall relationship between the U.S. and China is changing from engagement to strategic rivalry, and how energy is key to understanding this new dynamic.
  • How unsteady are the foundations of a Middle East that still supplies a third of the world’s petroleum and a significant amount of natural gas.

As an added bonus, each registrant will receive Mr. Yergin’s book (hardcover) delivered to your home via U.S. mail.
