What Fuels Energy Transitions

Posted October 26, 2020

Germán Vergara, Assistant Professor in the School of History and Sociology, was recently featured in this podcast from the Center for Culture, History, and Environment (CHE) at the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 

The podcast explores the history of Mexico's transition from renewable to non-renewable society and examines the commonalities in drivers and patterns of energy transitions that persist over space and time. Dr. Vergara also discusses his forthcoming book (Fueling Mexico: Energy, Environment, and the Transition to a Fossil-Fueled Society, 1850-1950), the Green Revolution, the history of energy transitions in Mexico and beyond, and the politics of global climate action.
