End of the Oil Age: Power Politics

In this episode of TwentyTwenty, we interview Robbie Diamond, founder and CEO of Securing America's Future Energy (SAFE), about the way in which energy has historically dominated geopolitics and how the battle for resources as we move into the world of renewables will reshape the political playing field. How will oil giants fare in the renewable energy transition? Will China's dominance of rare earth minerals make it the new OPEC? Can we learn from our time in the oil age, or are we doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past?
