"Welcome occurred oil on a wild ride today. After opec slashed global oil demand forecast for next year the organization citing harsher corona virus crackdowns across the globe energy so the worst performing sector this year. But our next guest says there's one name the space that is fueling up for some gains. Let's welcome back kate fateh. Ceo of grace capital. Kate great to see you again. You're looking at chenier energy. What's your top reason to be engineer. So okay bottom line. The world needs energy. Okay so there's a energy demand story and then those chenier money story. We all want energy the comfort of knowable sources. But this is not possible. Can we need an src. Balance sustainability and reliability and cost Energy gas. Natural gas is the way allergy can play the role chenier exports allergy globally. If you can believe it melissa. Twenty five percent of energy globally still comes from coal. Imagine natural gas replacing all of that. So that's the energy story in terms of chenier seven percent growing dividend. They probably went through the worst environment for energy this year and they made it valuation this cheap. The fundamentals are good. There's no commodity price risk. These are take or pay contracts. Okay that means they get paid no matter what there's no volume whisk there's no price rates so that that's why electioneer and that seven percent dividend is therefore covered karen. You've looked at this name in the past. I'm just wondering if i hear what you're saying about tigger pay contracts and that that's a steady stream of income which is good and investors like what about the longer term biden administration if they're against fracking. We'll see maybe they supply of natural gas available to be in a pipeline ship decreases. Does that worry you. At least you know we have the. Us is awash natural gas. We probably have a hundred year supply of natural gas fracking. No fracking so natural in. It's really cheap. Natural gas is like really cheap. Right now So it's not something that keeps me up at night. Do you have to believe kate. In the overall energy story in order to believe in chenier or can you see the sector overall sputtering little bit if you will. If they're more lockdown place in the short term yes you can see that bottom line. The world needs energy. i would love for. It's all come from solar wind. Biomass were not there yet. And we're not going to be there for a while so you need energy. Natural gas is better than coal gases. Better than oil. And that's why. I think chenier is the way to play it again. You don't want you're not worried about the price will going up going down. What's going to happen opec this that note kate. Great to see you thank you.

What Is The Future Of The Oil Industry?
"Oil, and gas powered a century of economic growth and damaged the planet's climate in the process which leaves the oil and gas industry in an existential panic in the short term, demand is down because of the pandemic in the long term. Well, there are two new reports out offering very different visions of the future NPR's Cumulus Domino ski covers energy and joins us now hi Camilla. Tell us about these two new reports where are they coming from? Yes, so they offer very divergent perspectives and let's start with the idea that oil will come roaring back. This is assuming that once the pandemic is over, someday, it will be over and the economy will recover oil will come back a demand will be there. The developing world is GONNA guzzle more and more of it back to business as usual. This is the view that was laid out by OPEC, cartel of oil exporting countries in their annual report called the Wu. then. Yeah the WOO WOO oil. Then there's different version of the future that was laid out by the International Energy Agency which a very influential group they said maybe that happens, but maybe the world takes action on climate change and if appropriate action is taken, oil demand could start going down and might even have peaked already. So is the main divergence in these two reports the assumptions about whether the world will take climate change seriously and to to slow it down. Yeah. That's the fundamental disagreement in this debate has been around for a long time while the World Act aggressively when will that happen? When will oil peak but right now this pandemic, which is you know we use the word unprecedented so much but something unprecedented has happened. There's a dramatic drop in demand for oil massive job losses across the sector, and that has made some people wonder could something else unprecedented happened? Could this unusual moment lead to an unusual level of action from world? Governments Arrive Faster or are you OPEC and you look at this and say the pandemic is just a blip and we'll be back to normal once it's over I'll note to there's there's one thing that both sides and pretty much everybody agrees on which is that the current pledges, the policies that are in place from world governments now are not enough to keep global warming at the two degrees Celsius that was committed to Paris or to shift the world meaningfully away from relying primarily on oil. So. That would require a huge transition from from what's currently happening or oil companies making those kinds of transitions i? Mean they have to make decisions today based on which one of these two futures they think is the most likely, right? Yeah. Absolutely, and you can see that split playing out a company's just to take two examples Exxon is doubling down on fossil. Fuels predicting a future in which there is still robust demand for gas and they. They'll be there to meet it meanwhile BP formerly British Petroleum they're they're projecting the world might be moving really aggressively and in they want to be there pivoting renewables trying to figure out how to make money money on a world that's transitioning away from their core product Some investors Nicole about so companies right now are placing their bets betting everything on which version of the world they think is more likely. It's hard to imagine any higher stakes here not only the future of those massive companies but like the future of the planet potentially literally I mean Exxon is right on the future is a lot like the present we're. Burning lots of oil which has had the disastrous climate consequences that we see unfolding and if BP and a lot of European super majors are correct. Then governments around the world might penalize carbon emissions, promote renewables. It would mean huge shifts in the energy industry, but it would help prevent the worst impacts for the planet like you said, NPR's Domino Ski. Thank
Stuart Stevens was an uncompromising Republican until Donald Trump
"Stuart. Stevens, thank you so much for coming on the PODCAST. Great. Longtime fan first time caller. Will thank you. You know you sent me a DM on twitter asking. For me to to read your latest book and where could you where could you send it and I thought if Stuart Stevens is sending me a message about a book he's written I probably need to read it. The name of the book is it was all a lie and I am so glad I, read it because in some ways it was. It was Cathartic for me to read because you know it's so secret. I'm a Democrat will little left of center and always these suspicions about the Republican Party. But you as a creature, the Republican Party someone who helps set up the Republican Party to hear you. Just. Sort of. What's the right? What's the right word to describe? What you do in this book before we dive right in. Look I. started. On the quested ended with this book asking myself how is trump could happen? and. You know kind of the old saying that your high high-scoring English if you can't ride that, you don't really understand it. So for me, it really began is a very personal quest You know two, thousand, sixteen, a lot of people were wrong about Donald trump it's hard to find anybody was more wrong than me. I didn't think he'd win the primary win the general and I realized in retrospect a lot because I didn't want to believe it. And then I went through this period after his elected, a lot of my friends did like Donald Trump is it really the Republican Party? But I don't really see how you sustain that. if part of the realities of what trump is brought to us as a death of truth. I think being truthful is all the more important. And it on one of the things that really drew me to the Republican. Party. Was the concept of personal responsibility. which now we've become the ultimate victims. Party. So for me I just kind nutty idea that if I believed in, I turn responsibility, it should be the first one of responsibility. I. Didn't want to write. You know the trope of books in DC of if only they'd listen to me. I couldn't write that because they did listen to me. I couldn't sort of like going them. So that's that's what led me to write the book I think it's a combination of a Mayor Copeland of your. That is the word I was looking for, and I couldn't find it was it was may Copa on on page thirty, six at the end of a gets the first chapter. Is a paragraph that I think encapsulates what you were just saying but also the premise of the book you write, how do you abandon deeply held beliefs about character personal responsibility, foreign policy, and the national debt in a matter of months you don't the obvious answer is those beliefs weren't deeply held in the end the Republican Party rallied behind Donald. Trump. Because if that was the deal needed to regain power, what was the problem because it had always been about power the rest, the principles, the values, it was all a lie. that. Is when I read that I underlined it practically ripping up the paper and underlying underlining it because that's what I've been seeing and has taken my breath away about the Republican, Party in the age of trump. All of these things I grew up hearing and learning from Republicans have been completely junked. You're right. We were wrong. I. It's I don't think we've really seen a collapse of a political party A. The way the Republican Party's collapsed in modern American history and probably not American history. To me, the Republican Party doesn't exist political party now exists cartel. WHY DOES IT Exist? It exists to be Democrats. That's not a political theory. It's just a marketing principle. It's like asking OPEC with the higher good of OPEC. Sell oil what an Arco. Darker curtail say what are you guys really trying to do tried to sell dope man and you know what's the Republican Party is trying to beat Democrats. and. To know. Tower to no purpose I think other than power

C. C. countries could produce less than that committed amount will will will allow others to to not meet that commitment so it is very much balancing bringing confidence back into the oil market but making sure they don't carry a greater burden are they happy then money so you have this whole debate as to what extent the Saudi economy is getting affected by all these disruptions one important indicators of course the three month cyber war and also the I or the United Arab Emirates in terms of the helpful financial conditions of what is your analysis what we've been looking for it because he is the cricket team in the banking system if you remember the twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen I've heard the G.

Asad I'll copy said caught har- would steal attend the groups meeting on Thursday and Friday, adding that a decision to exit OPEC was not political. I think Qatar has been on the great pressure from some of its neighbors in the Gulf for some time now. So it is slightly surprising. That is pulling out then claiming told a political issue. I it strikes me can only be that peck members Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates and the fellow Arab states, but rain and Egypt have imposed a political and economic boy cut on cut har- since June twenty seventeen the accused cut har- of supporting terrorism a charge denied by Doha. Now, we have Saad Joe what professor of the Lyndon school of. Economics and political science. I senior fellow with the Middle East center. So professor Joa.
