The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations
By Daniel Yergin
In The New Map, Pulitzer Prize winner Daniel Yergin takes the reader on a riveting and timely journey through the great issues of geopolitics and energy in our era of rising political turbulence and pointing to the profound challenges that lie ahead. The world is being shaken by the collision of energy, climate change and the clashing power of nations. Out of this tumult, Daniel Yergin, global energy expert and mastery storyteller, draws the new map of energy and world politics. He lays out the far-reaching but little-understood positive impacts of the shale revolution and explores the realities of “energy transitions”. He also demonstrates the impacts on the energy future of growing conflicts among nations, as well as Covid-19 and the “economic dark age” it has wrought.
The map in this sweeping book reaches from the Permian Basin to Dhahran and West Siberia, to the South China Sea, and back to Silicon Valley.
The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations is essential reading for petroleum professionals. It is also a great story in the tradition of his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Prize.
