Atomic Show #258: Energy and the Modern State With Professor George Gonzales [PODCAST]

Dr. George Gonzales is an energy-focused political scientist and professor at the University of Miami. He has written a number of books about the relationships between energy, the environment, international relations, and political decision making. His upcoming work is titled Energy and the Modern State; it is scheduled to be published in 2018.

On this podcast, George and I discuss the way that the United States continues to use its ability to influence and dominate the world’s oil markets to maintain its position as a global superpower. Part of the underlying strategy includes focused efforts to discourage the use of energy sources like plutonium that are capable of supplying enough additional energy to the world markets to reduce the importance and value of petroleum, natural gas and coal.

I hope you enjoy the discussion, even if it is lengthy, sometimes passionate, and a bit contentious.
