US Election: What Happens Next?

The US election has been a ‘nail-biter’ to say the least, with the votes still being counted three days after the election. While still not certain, the odds are now (at time of writing) skewed towards a Biden presidential win with the Republicans keeping control of the Senate.

This week our guest is Robert Johnston. RJ leads the energy and natural resources practice at Eurasia Group, a firm with a pulse on geopolitical risks.

Assuming a Biden win, we asked RJ:  What Is the path to inauguration from here, considering that Donald Trump is contesting the election results? What happens to the KXL pipeline? Does the US shortage of heavy oil factor in?  Would the US rejoin the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran, a deal that could increase oil supply?  What happens to Biden’s clean energy plan, including a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035?  What about the Paris Climate Agreement?
