Know Your Oil: Creating a Global Oil-Climate Index

Oil is changing. Conventional oil resources are dwindling as tight oil, oil sands, heavy oils, and others emerge.

Oil-Climate Index Release

Oil is changing. The oils themselves, how they are extracted and processed, and the products into which they are made are shifting in substantial ways.

Beyond Oil Sands: The Carbonates are Coming

The Keystone XL pipeline is a canary in the mine. It is a warning of what’s to come.

Insecurity from Asia’s Growing Oil Imbalance

As many economies across Asia are slowing, it is an opportune time to think strategically about physical resource limitations, associated environmental concerns, and evolving geopolitical realities.

The Abundance of Oils in the Water-Stressed Rockies

Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming are stocked with about every type of unconventional oil known today. The states are also ground zero for new oil and water challenges.

The Curse of High and Low Energy Prices

American consumers, industries, and policymakers cannot allow themselves to be seduced by short-term, reactive thinking when it comes to oil.

Shaping U.S. Energy Policy For an Era of Energy Abundance

Oils are changing. A more complex array of hydrocarbon resources is replacing conventional oils. The truth is that precious little is known about these new resources.

Emission Intensity Standards and the Push for Cleaner Fuels

New policies can help promote the use of cleaner transport fuels. But as the European Union’s recent experience shows, they still face significant challenges.

How Low Oil Price Will Impact Climate Change

There are four categories of crude oils that pose the biggest climate gamble. Unfortunately the market doesn’t necessarily and consistently factor in the environmental damage individual crudes cause.
