The Monash Energy Club and MOJO News is introducing podcast Grind’n the Grid, where we'll discuss energy and environment news, policy, and breakthroughs.
Our debut episode breaks down the oil war; why you were paying 85 cents a litre for petrol; the benefit the oil crisis has had on the environment - and whether those benefits will last.
Disclaimer: This was recorded on May 2. Oil prices have increased back to $25-$30 a barrel in the time since.
Correction: We said air quality in India improved by 35% on the first day of lockdown. Rather this was an improvement over three days. The Air Quality Index improved from 115 to 75, as quoted by the ABC.
