The Climate Pod

Jul 14, 2021

This is Part 1 of our two-part series covering the 1970s oil crises in America. The conversations in this series help us understand how the oil crises in the 1970s reshaped American politics and our ability to combat the climate crisis for the next 50 years.

Jay Hakes joins the show to discuss his book Energy Crises: Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Hard Choices in the 1970s. Jay was the Administrator of the US Energy Information Administration under President Bill Clinton and the Director for Research and Policy for President Obama’s BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Commission. Jay also served 13 years as the Director of Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Library.
