Meredith Angwin: Author of Shorting the Grid

For the one-year anniversary of the Power Hungry Podcast, we welcome back – for her third appearance — Meredith Angwin, the author of Shorting the Grid: The Hidden Fragility of Our Electric Grid. Of the 57 episodes we published over the past year, the February 17th episode with Angwin was our most popular one. Thus, we (producer Tyson Culver and I) invited her back. We discussed the “new kinds of blackouts” that are hitting the grid, how lavish subsidies for renewables are making it more fragile, the “fatal trifecta,” and how many of the decarbonization efforts being promoted by climate activists are a new “way of enforcing energy poverty.”
