Fossil fuels built the modern world and brought us conveniences that we now take for granted, but science has made it clear that we need to move away from fossil fuels to prevent the worst effects of climate change.

In this episode of Climate Sense, Samantha Gross speaks with Daniel Yergin about our energy system—how we got here and the challenges in moving to a new, greener energy system.
