Robert A. Hefner III in Conversation with Walter Isaacson

Energy industry leader and pioneer Robert A. Hefner III and Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of The Aspen Institute, discuss Hefner’s new book The Grand Energy Transition (GET), a groundbreaking book on how to better understand the past, present, and future of energy use in the development of civilization. The Grand Energy Transition is an insightful analysis of how the world is moving from unsustainable solid and liquid energy sources of our past to clean sustainable gaseous energy sources of our future. Hefner explains we’re on the verge of an evolutionary leap toward gas-based energy sources such as natural gas, solar, wind and hydrogen – and that government policies must accelerate this natural transition.

The Grand Energy Transition presents a powerful argument about how we can best solve our energy-related and rapidly accelerating climate, environmental, and national security problems.
