How Energy Wars Are Reshaping the World
Thursday, 22 September
Disputes over energy resources have become a key global issue. How is the way we consume oil and gas reshaping politics across the world? Arthur Snell, host of the Doomsday Watch podcast, is joined by Thijs van de Graaf, associate professor of international politics at the Ghent Institute and author of Global Energy Politics to discuss our changing energy sector.
“Oil consumption has peaked in the United States, Japan and Europe, the only way now is down.”
“We have kicked out oil from the power sector, something we have worked towards since the oil shocks of the 1970s.”
“The growth in oil pre-pandemic was petrochemicals and aviation, but now aviation has changed completely.”
“The war has changed everything, Europe is decoupling from Russia – shocks that will be felt for many years.”
