We had another very special guest today. Renowned energy expert and Pulitzer Prize winner Daniel Yergin stopped by to speak with AGA’s Leadership Council. He talked about a variety of things including: the natural gas industry, our present energy situation and the political environment surrounding those energy issues.
Pulitzer Prize winner Daniel Yergin and AGA chairman and chairman, president and chief executive officer of Piedmont Natural Gas Tom Skains.
Yergin also spoke about his new book The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power. The book, released December 2008, is an updated and expanded version of the original Pulitzer Prize Winner published in 1993. The new book now covers both the Iraq War and climate change and contains an epilogue that speaks directly to the current energy situation.
If you want more Yergin, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got an interview with him in this month’s issue of American Gas Magazine. In that interview, Yergin covers some tough topics that are of interest to anyone concerned with energy and the environment. Some of the topics he touches on include:
- Climate change
- Energy Security
- Cap-and-trade legislation
- A look into the future of energy
- Power generation
