The energy industry is changing and will continue to do so. The information people need to discuss it is too often dense and difficult to understand. It is the job of the journalist to provide the truth to readers, listeners, and users in a digestible manner without losing any of the nuance of the story. It's a tough ask, especially given these rapid and seemingly constant changes in the science and policy of all things energy. Politics, perspectives, history, and money, muddy the water when it comes to those truths. It's the job of the journalist to clarify things.
