Energy evolution
While attempts are being made to move away from fossil fuels for energy production, the transition is not happening as efficiently as many predict.

Meanwhile, failed policies – many of them based more on emotion than on scientific facts – have exacerbated many of the problems energy markets face – or created new ones.
