Environmentalists fight to forgo fossil fuels as US election spotlights production

October 17, 2016 (14:09 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

The fight in the US between oil and gas producers and environmentalists has taken on a more urgent tone lately, in part due to the country looking ahead to a new president. Senior oil editors Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon speak with Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, about the growing movement against oil and gas development. Environmentalists are pushing for all-out bans in some cases, and Brune delves into market implications of this movement, the impact of pipeline protests, President Barack Obama's fossil fuel legacy and more.
