The Power Hungry Podcast: John Harpole

John Harpole is the president of Denver-based natural gas broker Mercator Energy.

In his third appearance on the podcast (previous episodes were on March 10, 2022, and May 25, 2021), Harpole talks about the impact that the shuttering of Europe’s fertilizer plants will have on food prices and food security, soaring natural gas prices (on August 29, gas at the Dutch TTF hub was selling for $100 per mmBtu), deindustrialization, and how the shale revolution helped save the U.S. from the catastrophe now facing Europe.
