Bazilian interviewed by The Washington Post about Shell climate change scenario

Morgan Bazilian, executive director of the Payne Institute for Earth Resources and research professor in public policy at Colorado School of Mines, was recently interviewed by The Washington Post about Shell's Sky scenario, which imagines a future in which the increase to the global average temperature is held "well below" 2 degrees Celsius, the goal set forth in the Paris climate agreement. 

From the article:

Other changes are just as massive. Nuclear power would triple, the total use of electricity would expand fivefold, and the world would be equipped with 10,000 carbon capture and storage (CCS) installations.

“The reliance on CCS stands out in Sky, and what surprised me was the rapid decline in natural gas after 2040,” said Morgan Bazilian, a professor at the Colorado School of Mines who studies energy and fossil fuels. “Those are interesting contours, given Shell’s move toward natural gas in the recent past.”

Bazilian praised Shell’s future energy scenarios in general, noting, “In my mind, Shell has always been a leader in this space, and that is again the case with Sky.”
