Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Can combating climate change coexist with increased US oil production?



Herman Wang and Brian Scheid

After the unveiling of President Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan, it's an appropriate time to take stock of whether the administration's climate goals are at odds with the ongoing shale boom. Platts senior editor Brian Scheid asks whether history will remember Obama as the climate change president if domestic crude supply reaches record highs during his time in office, and whether efforts to combat climate change will always be at odds with efforts to grow oil production.

Jason Bordoff, Obama's former special assistant and a senior director for energy and climate change on the National Security Council, Ronald Minsk, a former special assistant to Obama for energy and environment, and David Goldwyn, a former special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs with the State Department, weigh in on the balance between climate goals and US fossil fuel production efforts.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol. E-mail the editors at brian.scheid@platts.com and herman.wang@platts.com.
