Episode 3
The Energy Equation: Commodities, Resources and Geopolitics

For the final episode of ‘An Emerging Energy Framework for the 22nd– Century’, Todd Buchholz welcomes “America’s most influential energy pundit”, Dr. Daniel Yergin, Vice-Chair of IHS Markit, to the podcast.

Daniel Yergin is a highly-respected authority on energy, international politics, and economics, and a Pulitzer Prize winner.  He is Vice Chairman of IHS Markit, a leading information and advisory firm with 16,000 employees worldwide and chairman of IHS Markit’s CERAWeek conference, which CNBC has called “the Super Bowl of energy”.

“If there is one man whose opinion matters more than any other on global energy markets, it’s Daniel Yergin,” according to Time Magazine. Forbes says, “Few see the geopolitical future like Daniel Yergin. (He is) a rare writer who can synthesize economics, energy, history, geopolitics, and technology.”

Dr. Yergin’s new book The New Map: Energy, Climate and the Clash of Nations is described by NPR as “a master class on how the world works”, and, in The Washington Post, as “a tour de force of geopolitical understanding.”  His book The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil Money and Power was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, was a number one New York Times bestseller, and has been translated into 20 languages.
