119: Why the energy transition from coal to oil matters today

Historian Brian Frehner discusses the energy transition from coal to oil and the historical importance of J. Clarence Karcher. The transition to oil may seem obvious now, but it was not inevitable. By studying the past energy transition from coal to oil, scientists and the public can better understand how transitions do and do not occur and better prepare for future energy transitions.
