A Slow-Motion Revolution That Is Changing the World - Energy and Geopolitics

Thanks must go to my colleague, Stu Turner, for sending me this link - i have managed to find both interviews with Daniel Yergin on Energy in the 21st Century.

Amidst the cries of a new energy paradigm for for the 21st Century towards based upon the 'limitless' flow of energy from renewables (, Yergin keeps a cool head and argues that real change in the energy field will be much more gradual, rooted in history.

The first interview focuses on (and i quote) "some of the core ideas in Yergin's book, those pertaining to the search for new ways to provide the energy the planet needs. In Part II (the second interview), the discussion turns to the geopolitics of energy in the century ahead."
