Good Conflict, Part 1

In the oil and gas industry, we find ourselves describing public hostility to our work in black-and-white terms, such as “fight for our lives” and “energy wars.” These characterizations serve a purpose: They unite oil and gas workers, give us a sense of shared purpose, and mobilize us to serve as industry ambassadors to the world.
