Paris, the Presidential Election, and the Future of the Energy Industry

All sectors of the energy industry are under pressure from a combination of ultra low prices, dislike of big business, accusations of crony capitalism and, last but not least, what for many are existential threats from environmental concerns.

The speakers, respectively the former Chief Climate Counsel for Sierra Club and Head of Climate Policy at ExxonMobil, talk frankly about what the future holds: what the Paris agreement means (and does not mean) for the energy industry; why the 2016 election may make less difference than many think – or hope – and what the reality of a carbon-constrained policy world means for the fossil and renewable energy industries.
