We had a great sitdown roundtable with Terry Winnitoy, Co-Founder EnergyNow, and our other regular Canadian energy experts, Heidi McKillop, CEO, ASN Productions, and Terry Etam, Author, World-Renowned Energy Expert.
This was one of our regular international-focused podcasts and it was everything our followers expect. Fun, informative, opinionated, and you might even learn something. Not from me of course.
We cover the US and Canadian relationship looking at politics and energy policies, and the discussions between the pro-fossil fuels and the renewable fan club. One thing is for certain, we need to go to a carbon-net zero, but how we get there is the key discussion point.
Thank you, Heidi, Terry, and your other brother Terry for stopping by the Energy News Beat Podcast. – Please reach out to Terry in his LinkedIn link below. A true energy industry leader and I was very grateful to have our time together.
I had an absolute blast. Looking forward to a great 2022 with our Canadian Team. Stu.

One of our biggest problems in Canada and the United States is that we’re preaching to the converted already when we go on these energy-related platforms. I think most people in the industry, we imply, employ so many people on both sides of the border and generate so many tax dollars that where we’re falling is not trying to get the message out enough as we can to that to the general public.
In the Houston World Petroleum Congress in the last couple of weeks, we finally saw some major oil and gas executives step up and make some great comments about the transitioning and how far it is trying to go too far, too quickly. And the consequences bring some reality to the end of the conversation, which is great.
But the only problem is we’re still getting out on a business perspective where we’re still talking about it and all the businesses. It’s still not getting to the grassroots people that go to the pump every day. And the one thing you know that gets me about all this, too, is the one missing narrative in all this is that we use thousands and thousands of products.
Everything around us sitting here is made from oil and gas, wind and solar, and hydro and geothermal. None of those things are going to make oil and gas. So, you know, I think that we’ve got a long way to go yet to educate the public.
