Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Daniel Yergin for a discussion of his new book, "The Quest." Tracing his intellectual odyssey, Yergin reflects on the challenges of writing a comprehensive account of energy, and he highlights the importance of storytelling in crafting a powerful narrative. He then analyzes the role of creativity, technology, markets, and geopolitics in shaping the unfolding story of energy. The conversation moves on to three important questions: whether there will be enough energy to meet the world s demands, whether the security of the energy system will be insured, and what will be the future mix of energy sources.
