Episode 13: Facing up to the energy crisis
The war in Ukraine has laid bare the important role of energy in the geopolitical order of our planet and how reliant we still are on fossil fuels to power our daily lives.
This new podcast episode explores the links between energy and international relations, including whether Russia will still be an energy superpower after its war in Ukraine, and how China can meet its future energy needs while balancing climate commitments. It also looks at why we are finding it so hard to transition away from fossil fuels, and what alternative options exist.
It features Dr Thomas Fröhlich, Kalina Damianova and Isabel Hilton, all of whom are part of the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy at King’s.
