1. 53 - Can we really eliminate fossil fuels? 37:17

Would you want to live in a world with no cell phones?  What about your computer?  Maybe, you think, you could live without them.  But what about pharmaceuticals and medical devices like aspirin and heart valves?  Those would literally be hard to live without.  The truth is that there are over 6,000 everyday products that are derived from oil and natural gas.  In this episode, host Catryn Becker chats with natural resources expert Howard Crosby about his experience with oil & gas, rare earth metals, and the negative impact of electric vehicles on the environment.  This is a great episode to hear an alternative view point on the situation.

About Howard Crosby

From $1 Million to $400 Million: Founding Cadence Resources in 2001, in just five years, Howard grew a modest oil and gas producer from a $1 million market cap to $400+ million and achieved an uplisting to AMEX. 

Second Largest Silver Mine in US History: Howard founded the company that acquired the Galena Mine in north Idaho’s historic Silver Valley – the second-largest silver mine in US history.

Oil Price Oracle: Howard has a proven track record of correctly calling oil price movements. His 2003-04 CBS Evening News interviews with Anthony Mason attest to this. Howard has also worked in Uranium, consulted on major natural resources project financing, and has successfully listed multiple companies on the TSX that were later sold for significant increases over their original market values.

Today, Howard is focused on LGX Energy — his reentry into the oil and gas sector, targeting an underdeveloped resource in the Illinois Basin with major potential amid rising demand and increasing oil prices. 

As an interesting aside, Howard’s late uncle was the legendary American entertainer Bing Crosby, whom he knew well as a frequent golf companion in the 1970s!
