ENB #70 We have a great talk with Irina Slav, International Energy Thought Leader. We talk about the energy crisis, and how humor cannot even ease the pain.

ENB Podcast Irina Slav, we talk about humor and the energy crisis

“Make no mistake, it is not about fossil vs. renewable. It is about getting low-cost power to help elevate humanity from poverty with the least amount of negative impact on the environment.” -Stu Turley

I am so grateful to be able to talk with Irina regularly. Her industry knowledge is refreshing and much needed in the energy community. This month’s talk is no exception. We talk about the Energy Crisis, her writing style, and that it is so demanding of a conversation that even humor can make the discussions less depressing. It is one way that I am grateful for her writing style and industry leadership.

There is energy hypocrisy in the world. We need to promote all forms of energy to all world citizens, with the lowest kWh and the least impact on the environment. This electricity to their homes requires fossil fuels in emerging countries. Getting the power to the disproportionally impacted communities and nations. The United States got to prosperity by using low-cost fossil fuels. Should we deny Africa or any other country the same rights?

Irina Slav, Energy Writer, Industry Thought Leader [00:00:04] Well, what you see is what you perceive as fun is actually a very deep frustration with how the world is being operated these days. But yes, when it comes to Africa, there is a great deal of hypocrisy is not just hypocrisy, it’s also energy hypocrisy. The bank is about this pipeline from Uganda to Tanzania to the coast. Basically, the funding for this pipeline was discouraged. Several hundred organizations, and NGOs, wrote an open letter calling for financial institutions to not finance this pipeline.
