America is undergoing a seismic shift in energy. We are now producing more oil than at any time since the early 1990s; we are awash in natural gas, which is helping push coal out of the market; and we have doubled renewable electricity in the last four years.

Coupled with dire climate challenges and a shifting geopolitical landscape, there's a lot of change underway in energy. But this era isn't necessarily unique, explains Michael Levi, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. In this week's podcast, we'll discuss the realities of America's current energy transition -- and how it compares to previous eras of uncertainty.
