Episode #5: Industry vs. the Environment? A False Narrative with Terry Etam
Today we are joined by best selling author Terry Etam - a twenty-five-year veteran of the energy industry, who is an accountant by training and has a variety of experience in production, trading, storage, and energy transportation.
Terry is currently an energy executive at an exploration and production company headquartered in Calgary, Alberta and is the best selling author of The End of Fossil Fuel Insanity - a book that explores the practical realities of energy consumption in the modern world.
The book is an insightful look into the past, present and future of the energy industry as it explores the debates and topics of modern times.
Terry has written for more than five years on his own website, Public Energy Number One, and is also a widely-read columnist for the largest Canadian energy news website - the BOE Report.
He has been called an industry thought leader and one of the most influential voices in the energy industry.
Terry and I talked about many things including the false narrative of industry vs. the environment, the problem of harmful ideologues on both sides of the debate, and how a pragmatic viewpoint is currently missing from the discussion.
I hope you enjoy the show!
