Semafor: "Anyone's Guess"
A segment in Semafor's Net Zero newsletter highlights findings from RFF's new Global Energy Outlook 2023 report.
"In a report this week, the think tank Resources for the Future compared midcentury energy market scenarios published recently by energy companies and the International Energy Agency.
