Oil and Climate

Comparing greenhouse gas emissions from global oils that vary widely due to their composition and management.

Oil-Climate Index

The Carnegie
Podcast

The world of oils is becoming increasingly complex. Compared to a decade ago, new technologies have allowed around 300 new oils to come on-stream. Figuring out which oils are the most carbon intensive has become very complex but also very important for investors and regulatory agencies. Carnegie Endowment, in conjunction with Stanford University, and the University of Calgary has developed a first-of-its-kind Oil-Climate Index (OCI) to compare these resources. Tom Carver sat down with Debbie Gordon, the head of Carnegie’s Energy and Climate program to discuss the ways the OCI describes the new world of unconventional oils.

The Carnegie Podcast is an occasional series featuring commentary and analysis from Carnegie experts on critical global issues.
