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. Some of the widest disagreement was on the outlook for oil demand. The gaps show where some of the biggest oil producers—OPEC and ExxonMobil—are betting the economy will go, and how far that is from a net-zero world."
