Hurricane Ida Walloped Gulf’s Energy Infrastructure (Podcast)

Sept. 1, 2021, 8:23 PM

The Gulf Coast region is crucial for the energy industry, with a huge portion of the country’s oil refining and petrochemical manufacturing clustered there. And now it’s reeling after a direct hit from Hurricane Ida.

On this episode of our environmental podcast, Parts Per Billion, we talk to two Bloomberg News energy reporters about how the region is handling this. Kevin Crowley talks about the risks now faced by the Gulf Coast’s petroleum industry, while Josh Saul fills us in on the slow and painstaking effort to bring the region’s power grid back online.
