For the next few months, Inside Energy will be partnering with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Center for Science Education to get to the bottom of some of the most common and lingering questions about the impacts of oil and gas development, sharing what we know, what we don’t know, and the areas of active research.
Inside Energy, in collaboration with Rocky Mountain PBS and Fast Forward Films, presents “Beyond Standing Rock” a documentary exploring the conflict surrounding the Dakota Access pipeline and the struggle for Native American rights against the backdrop of the new Trump administration.
Colorado voters likely won’t be able to weigh in on the future of oil and gas development this November, but that doesn’t mean the issues themselves are dead. Environmentalists and industry are preparing for the fight to continue on the ground.
We asked: What have you always wanted to know about electric vehicles? And you answered. You gave us questions. Great questions. Lots of them – everything from where to charge up, what to do with a used battery, and why electric cars aren’t outfitted with solar panels.
Wait, don’t you mean, “What is a spark?” Actually…no. We really just mean, Spark! As the Inside Energy project rounds the corner on its one-year anniversary, we figured it was about time for us to come out from behind your radio and your computer screen, and meet you live in person. This week our team launched a community event series called Spark! with the mission of revealing why energy is something you should care about – even if you aren’t in the energy industry.
We wanted to find out if the increasing debt load of many oil companies is making them more vulnerable to sliding oil prices. Understanding how debt plays into the web of a company’s finances was a beast – nay, a monster – we faced with only financial documents to protect us.
With the new Congress convening today in Washington, the Inside Energy team has produced a series that examines how the 2015 GOP ascendency in the Senate may affect the country’s energy policy. Executive Editor of Inside Energy Alisa Barba recently joined Robin Young on Here and Now, where the series will air this week, to discuss what may be in store for energy in the Republican Congress.
