Stuart Turley Wants to Eliminate Energy Poverty

Stuart Turley Wants to Eliminate Energy Poverty

“I want to eliminate energy poverty,” Turley said. “The only way that you can eliminate energy poverty is to have low cost, abundant energy..."

Stuart Turley, CEO, Podcast Host, Elimination of Energy Poverty, joins The Crude Life to discuss some recent energy issues and activities.

After some friendly banter, the interview dives into the evolution of politics being injected into energy.

"So my research started 15 years ago. the energy industry was not political. Not even close to where it was today. In fact, when I was growing up, the only thing about politics was the gas prices," The Crude Life founder and host Jason Spiess said. "And by the way, this was after Exxon Valdez had like a big spill. And there was more jokes about a drunk sailor than there was about problems with the oil spill, okay?"

Turley agreed with Spiess on the level of politics involved in energy today.

“I want to eliminate energy poverty,” Turley said. “The only way that you can eliminate energy poverty is to have low cost, abundant energy that has the least amount of impact on the environment and sustainable through not printing money. And by not printing money, it means it can be fiscally sustainable. I'm all in on all forms of energy, oil, gas, nuclear, wind, solar. It does not matter to me. Let's take care of humanity first.”

The interview also cites examples of people and companies who are becoming leaders in energy (and humanity) rather than specifically oil and gas. Chris Wright, CEO, Liberty Energy is one of the ones cited.

“He is a humanitarian,” Turley said. “When I met Chris Wright, maybe four or five years ago, and I saw his presentation on humanitarian and delivering everyone from eliminating energy poverty. I absolutely think the world of Chris Wright.”

Carbon management and the integration of Ag and Energy are also discussed in detail.

"I believe that anybody that is going to take government funds is going to need to get into that carbon market, even if carbon is either right or wrong, whether or not we need enough CO2.” Turley said. “I think CO2 is not the bad man in the room, my personal opinion but those that are going to manage that are going to be able to use government funds and survive politically. So Oxy, Exxon, Chevron are all doing great things."

Public relations in energy, oil, gas and community engagement is also discussed in detail.

“I'm going to brag on myself for half a second,” Turley said. “And that is when I was working for Intercom, which had the big investor conferences and everything else. They had Oil and Gas 360, And I'd said, guys, we got to change this and get it to energy. And they said, no, well, I went and started it energy.”

The two discussed the college bowl game history as an example of missed opportunities for oil and gas to connect with their end user in energy - the general public.
