Listen: Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes: The effect of US crude export policy on climate goals

During the final Capitol Crude episode of 2015, Platts senior oil editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang take a look at the effect of US crude oil production, consumption, and exports on climate goals.

Michelle Patron, the former White House special assistant to the president and senior director for energy and climate change on the US National Security Staff, talks about the effect of US crude export policy on climate goals, the impact of the Paris climate accord on oil markets, and President Obama's fossil fuel legacy.

Note: Capitol Crude will be taking a much-deserved holiday break to ring in the New Year by dropping a crystal barrel of crude over Times Square. The final episode of the year will be Dec. 21, and the first of 2016 will be Jan. 11.
