Panama Goes Greener With Gas

Gas is key to Panama's plans to become even greener over the next few decades, Energy Secretary Jorge Rivera Staff tells Energy Intelligence. The country, a major transit route for LNG, container and dry bulk shipping, ranks as carbon negative, meaning it absorbs more carbon than it emits. But it is highly vulnerable to climate change as a result of rising sea levels and dependence on hydropower. And as it looks to avert the worst impacts, gas will play a much bigger role in power generation, Rivera Staff said in an exclusive interview.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he wants the Glasgow climate talks to consign "coal to history." That could lead to embarrassment back home.
