Carnegie Endowment's Gordon discusses new Oil-Climate Index, says industry lacking transparency

As the range of oils and extraction methods continues to evolve, how do various oils compare with one another on their climate impacts? During today's OnPoint, Deborah Gordon, director of the Energy and Climate Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, discusses a new Oil-Climate Index that highlights the changing dynamics of the oil industry and the impacts on climate change. She explains how she believes policymakers should use the index and talks about the need for greater transparency from the oil industry.
