With the coronavirus pandemic, climate change crisis and worldwide political tensions, humankind faces an uncertain future.

In his new book "The New Map: Energy, Climate, and The Clash of Nations," Pulitzer-Prize winning author and leading energy expert Daniel Yergin describes how these crises are mapping the future. 

How did we get to where we are today? Is there precedent for this level of global turbulence?

What impact will COVID-19 and related economic fallout have on the global climate change response?

What role will international politics and energy dominance play in shaping the global future? How can individuals influence the path forward? 

Guest: Daniel Yergin, Ph.D., leading authority on energy, international politics and economics; vice chairman of IHS Markit; author of multiple best-selling books including Pulitzer Prize-winner "The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power"
