Daniel Yergin, vice chairman of IHS Markit and Pulitzer Prize winning author of The New Map: Energy, Climate and the Clash of Nations, joins “Plugged In” hosts Josh Siegel and Neil Chatterjee to discuss the energy crisis occurring in Europe and Asia and how that should inform discussions at the U.N. climate summit in Glasgow.

 

Yergin also challenges the IEA’s surprising call this year that new oil and gas exploration should stop in order to reach net-zero emissions.

 

He calls the scenario a “very strange thing” and “not realistic” and warns that “preemptive underinvestment” in oil and gas can “come back to haunt us.”
