The post-covid fossil fuels boom
Don’t look now but the world is in a fossil fuels boom. As the economy bounces back from covid-19, the global demand for oil, gas and coal is skyrocketing. Yet didn't international leaders just make new climate pledges that promise to cut out these fossil fuels? How do we make sense of this contradiction? How long will the fossil fuel boom last? And will it send our climate goals out of reach?

Guests: Tim Gould (Chief Energy Economist, IEA), Jackie Forrest (Executive Director, Arc Energy) & Aaron Cosbey (Sr. Associate, IISD)
