In this episode, Nate is joined by Doomberg – the anonymous energy/finance analyst team (visually presenting as a talking chicken icon) who uses an energy lens to analyze global trends in the economy, with so far some remarkable accuracy. In this wide-ranging discussion, Doomberg and Nate cover the interactions between geopolitics, debt, climate policy, and – of course – energy. How have the narratives created around different types of energy – from renewables to nuclear – affected current policymaking around the world? Will the increasingly precarious state of the global debt and monetary system shift the geopolitical landscape? How have increased global tensions combined with a rise in green energy policy affected nations’ desire for energy security – and what does it mean for future policy as we enter a period of decreasing energy availability?
