    Hi,

    We hope you’re all staying well during this eventful summer.

    We have a favour to ask. We're doing a survey to help us understand what you’re looking for from Energy vs Climate and where we could make programming and format changes to better meet your needs.

    We would be very grateful if you took just a few minutes out of your summer schedule to complete this survey. Your feedback will help us as we plan for Season 3 of the pod and beyond. 

    Thanks, and we look forward to coming back in late September with new Energy vs Climate shows covering new topics. 

    Ed, Sara and David

    The Q&A Episode

    The Q&A Episode

    On Episode 20 of Energy vs Climate David, Sara, and Ed revisit some of the topics covered on previous episodes and answer outstanding audience questions about net zero oil sands, carbon capture, nuclear, enhanced oil recovery, the electricity grid, and their grand vision for Canada's energy future.

    This is the last episode of the season, but we'll be back in September with more guests, more debate, and more solutions for the energy transition. In the meantime, we're looking to you, our listeners, to help us make next season even better so subscribe to our newsletter at energyvsclimate.com and watch for an audience survey coming to your inbox later this summer.

    Carbon Capture

    Carbon Capture

    The world has been taking carbon capture, utilization and storage seriously for a couple of decades now. It feels like we’re on the cusp of an explosion of CCUS projects, especially in the US. But will this be any different than Carbon Capture 1.0, which some consider a failure to launch? And if yes, why?

    On Episode 19 of the Energy vs Climate show, David, Sara and Ed host special guest Sally Benson, professor of energy resources engineering at Stanford University. Benson directs the Stanford Center for Carbon Storage and the Stanford Carbon Removal Initiative. She brings technical knowledge and decades of experience to the topic. Sally and David first overlapped on CCS two decades ago and served on the IPCC’s 2005 Special Report on CCS. What did they get wrong? Right? What has been learned? And what does it mean for Canada?

    Canadian Green Politics

    Canadian Green Politics

    On Episode 18 of Energy vs Climate, top climate scientist Andrew Weaver dives into Canada’s energy versus climate bunfight. Weaver, a professor of earth and ocean sciences at the University of Victoria and former leader of the BC Green Party shares the most surprising parts of moving from science to politics, what it’s like to negotiate the political tension between the go-slow right and the eager left, and answers the question: how realistic is Canada’s 2030 commitment?

    Decarbonizing Heavy Industry

    Decarbonizing Heavy Industry

    From cement to steel to mining, Canada has a lot of its economy wrapped up in heavy industry. What are the key opportunities and challenges on the path to decarbonizing heavy industry? What are some of the most promising technology and process solutions? What should governments do to help these sectors to decarbonize?  On Episode 17 of Energy vs Climate, David, Sara, Ed, and special guest Thomas Koch Blank, senior principal at RMI, dig into what's working, not working, and what to do next.Or check out the Youtube video version of Episode 17.

    What can we know about energy futures?

    What can we know about energy futures?

    Climate and energy debates rest on predictions. How many years left to save the planet? How cheap will solar power get? We dive into the dirty world of making such projections. What’s the difference between climate models and energy system models? What do past forecasts tell us about the accuracy of these models? Hint: there’s no shortage of overconfidence.  

    On Episode 16 of Energy vs Climate, David, Ed, Sara, and special guest Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institution for Science Department of Global Ecology at Stanford University debate the use and abuse of models in energy decisions, and share behind-the-scenes insight into how David and Ken helped Bill Gates learn these topics.Tune into the Youtube version of the episode.
