HEYCO Hosts Lecture: Europe’s Green Energy Crisis, Putin’s War, and the U.S.

George Yates, CEO of HEYCO Energy Group, and King Crow, Partner at Flatland Minerals, hosted a luncheon with special guest speakers Dr. Benny Peiser and Francis Menton at the Dallas Petroleum Club on Thursday March 24, 2022. 

“Europe’s Green Energy Crisis, Putin’s War, and the U.S.” 

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a dramatic escalation of the UK’s worst energy and security crisis since World War II and calls for decisive deterrence by Britain and its Western allies.

Europe’s Net Zero agenda, its suppression of nuclear, oil, gas and coal power in favor of unreliable renewables and its failure to develop its shale gas wealth has been incentivizing Putin’s energy wars and has become a major threat to Europe’s economy, peace and security.

Europe’s green energy crisis has significant implications and key lesson for America’s climate and energy policy.

Dr. Benny Peiser is the director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), the world’s leading climate policy think tank based in London. The GWPF is a non-partisan think tank founded by Lord Lawson, Britain’s former Chancellor who served in the cabinet of Margaret Thatcher. Dr. Peiser has written extensively on international climate policy. 

Francis Menton is a retired lawyer and was a partner at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP in New York for more than 30 years. On his popular blog Manhattan Contrarian he writes about elite political ideologies on climate change, the purpose of government, New York state news, and the basic principles of economics. Mr. Menton is the President of the American Friends of the GWPF.
